A repulsive smear


WE knew Sadiq Khan, the London mayor, had only a tenuous grasp on reality. Now he really has lost the plot.

To smear anyone objecting to his punitive Ultra Low Emission Zone traffic scheme as ‘far-Right’ and ‘Covid deniers’ is disgusting.

Oswald Mosley was far-Right. Ordinary folk with valid concerns about the crippling £12.50-a-day charge, or those questionin­g its democratic legitimacy, are not.

But then these are increasing­ly the tactics of the Left. When their arguments collapse, they belittle and dehumanise their opponents in the most repulsive way.
