    Labour politician Mr Khan, who became the Mayor of London earlier this month, is one of the country’s most prominent pro-LGBT Muslim politicians.

    He has been candid about receiving death threats from some hardline Islamist preachers after voting in favour of same-sex marriage in 2013, and is a strong voice for tolerance.

    To mark IDAHOT, the politician today ordered the Pride flag be flown from City Hall today, alongside the Union Flag.

    He's also challenged Trump's bigoted nonsense, which is another feather in his cap.

    Sadiq Khan: I don't want exemption from 'ignorant' Trump's Muslim ban

    Sadiq Khan, the new mayor of London, has rebuffed Donald Trump’s suggestion that he could be an exception to Trump’s proposed policy to ban all Muslims from travelling to the United States.

    Khan, the capital’s first Muslim mayor, said the call by the presumptive Republican nominee for president for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the US was something that directly affected those closest to him, and said making an exception for him was not the answer.

    Who gives a fuck what Chaka Khan thinks or says. Our national security is for our leaders to worry about and handle as they see fit. Let Buckingham Palace or Westminster Abbey get blown to smitherines and we'll see the same rhetoric coming from merry ol' England's MPs and politicians.

    The IRA spent nearly 30 years blowing iconic British buildings and ordinary people to smithereens and at no point did any British leader (real or wannabe) advocate a "total and complete shutdown" of Catholics or Irish people entering Britain.

    Only imbecilic Trump trash would imagine such a ban to be useful or workable.

    A quick internet search will prove the IRA never blew to smitherines an iconic British building or killed British citizens on a scale anywhere near comparable to the World Trade Center on 9/11.

    On a side note, our own little town, which isn't even as populous as one of London's over 30 boroughs, will be permanently raising the gay rainbow flag at City Hall next week. Enacted by decision of the City Commission, the flag will fly on its own new pole alongside the US national flag.

    At a lesser height, of course, in keeping with US flag protocol. I think we may be the only city in Florida to have officially & permanently done this.

    Our LGBT city population is estimated at between 60 & 70%, although the last US census doesn't reflect that. Our older gay population has the reflexive habit of concealing themselves from government scrutiny. We hope to attend the ceremony.

    And then there was that little WWII thingy you guys dealt with...

    See, you should have put your foot down sooner.

    Had you not tolerated the Lutherans bombing the fuck out of you, you might have better avoided the later Catholic spill over of the Irish Tribbles...

    Therefore history teaches that it's only bad when Muslims do it.

    Never heard of bi phobia in the UK. It's never been an issue and being bi is seen as cool amongst young people here.

    Have you heard of 3nder? The app to find 3somes. Lots of bi people on there; male and female.

    Spot the simplistic Trumpist - totally missing the point: "Our terror attack was waaay bigger than any of yours!"
