Khan, Corbyn Call On UK PM To Sack Johnson

After UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, his close ally London Mayor Sadiq Khan has also called on Prime Minister Theresa May to sack Boris Johnson for doing a poor job as the country’s foreign secretary.

Speaking to BBC on Sunday, Khan said Johnson had not performed his “first duty” and if May was a strong leader she would have already removed the FM for his many diplomatic blunders.

“He has offended the Libyans in relation to what he said about Sirte being ‘the new Dubai should they get rid of the dead bodies’,” Khan said of Johnson, who had to later on apologize for his remarks.

“He’s offended the Americans by saying [former] President Obama is anti-British because he’s ‘part Kenyan’,” Khan argued, noting that Johnson had also angered the Spanish as well as Sikhs.

Questioning May’s logic for picking Johnson in the first place, London’s Muslim mayor said the foreign secretary had done “enough” to leave the job.
