Labour’s candidate to become London Mayor was last night embroiled in a row over hugely offensive remarks about rape, murder and gay people made by one of his key aides.
Sadiq Khan suspended his Commons-based speechwriter after The Mail on Sunday discovered messages in which the aide laughed about seeing homosexuals being abused in public, and made reference to ‘hoes’ and ‘f***ing faggots’ – on a Twitter feed followed by the Labour mayoral hopeful.
Shueb Salar, who has represented Mr Khan at public events, continued to post them after he started working for Mr Khan in the run-up to last year’s General Election.
Among the messages Mr Salar posted on Twitter was ‘advice to anyone who’s looking to murder their girlfriend and get away with it LOL’. The acronym stands for laugh out loud.
