‘Bitter sweet’ Moment for the Talented Sadiq Khan

Author - Flickr user Steve Punter

Sadiq Khan - Rising star

As is the way of Sadiq Khan, MP for Tooting, he instinctively rails against the spotlight even when it is to applaud his own achievements.

With great humility he thanked his constituents for returning him to Westminster in what was a pretty fiercely contested seat.

And then when the Labour leader Harriet Harman handed him the shadow Cabinet post for Transport, he stated he was, ‘deeply honoured’, adding, ‘What I’m not going to do is get delusions of grandeur and forget where I came from’.

Throughout his career, Khan has quietly impressed his party bosses – who made him the first Muslim Cabinet Minister – his constituency and the grass roots campaigners who see in him someone who can achieve high office whilst maintaining a high level of integrity which is admired by many.

OBV applauds this ever rising star!

  1. It was a great privilege to work for Sadiq Khan, I hope his political career continues to grow from strength to strength.

    On another note, Simon Woolley for PM!!!

  2. Keep up the good work Sadiq. Pity you were part of a very very bad government.

    “On another note, Simon Woolley for PM!!!”

    I somehow don’t think so.
