Zac Goldsmith is attacked by Senior Tory over London mayoral election.
The mayoral campaign of Zac Goldsmith has been awfully criticized by a senior conservative for being ‘outrageous” attempts to link his Labour opponent, Sadiq Khan, to Islamist extremism.’
Here watch the video: Tory peer slams Zac Goldsmith over 'offensive' article linking Sadiq Khan to 7/7.
Andrew Boff who is the leader of the conservative group said ‘it was a mistake for his own side to have attacked Khan in a way that could damage community relations.’
Goldsmith’s on the other hand, well acclaims that Khan has been ‘branded racist and divisive by Labour and some Conservative activists.’
But the Tory mayoral candidate and David Cameron says ‘Khan was unfit for office, arguing he had showed poor judgment in sharing platforms with Islamist extremists while he was a human rights lawyer.’
No matter how strong the critics are and no matter how hurtful the attacks are, Khan has still been ‘the bookmakers’ favorite throughout the race and would become the UK’s most powerful Muslim politician to date if he wins. Labour campaign sources said they were optimistic.
