FARAGE V KHAN: Farage Slams ‘Virtue Signalling’ Mayor
Nigel Farage has taken to Twitter to slam London’s “virtue-signalling” Mayor. Mr Khan took to Twitter to say that Donald Trump will find London to be a city which has chosen “unity over hate” and valued “liberal free speech:
If he comes to London, President Trump will experience an open and diverse city that has always chosen unity over division and hope over fear. He will also no doubt see that Londoners hold their liberal values of freedom of speech very dear.

Mr Farage, however, hit straight back:
If only Sadiq was as good at being Mayor as he is at virtue signalling. https://t.co/UvAzngpHpx

Others mocked Mr Khan wanting to defend the ideals of free speech:
You literally set up a multi-million pound “hate crime” unit that arrests people for mean tweets.
Sit down. https://t.co/LXJoZXjnpw

Mr Farage welcomed Mr Trump’s visit but noted that it was a year behind France and only a ‘working visit’ :
So the Donald is coming to the UK. He is coming on July 13 following a NATO summit. I am pleased this is happening.
We are only a year behind the French in doing this although when he went there it was for a full state visit, this is to be just a working visit.
