PARIAH; 2 LOCAL ELECTIONS FALLOUT FEUDING LABOUR Khan Gives Toxic Leader the Slip. as the 'Moderate' Plotters Keep Gunpowder Dry for 'Corbyn Kill'

In a sign of his new international standing, he was yesterday congratulated by US Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, who praised him as 'a champion of workers' rights and human rights'. Sources said the new mayor appeared determined not to have his moment of glory tarnished by association with Mr Corbyn. During his campaign, Mr Khan disowned Mr Corbyn's Left-wing style, such as his refusal to sing the National Anthem.
