Conservative mayoral candidate: ‘Sadiq Khan does not share the values ​​of Londoners’ – News Block

Susan Hall has been selected by Conservative members to become the party’s candidate for Mayor of London.

Vowing to defeat Labor Mayor Sadiq Khan, Ms Hall said: “People may scoff and they may underestimate us, but we will give everything to the city that has given us so much.

“We have to show that we display the values ​​of everyday Londoners,” he added.

“Those are my values, those are conservative values ​​and those are Londoners’ values, but those are not Sadiq Khan’s values.”

She competed against only one other contender in the conservative selection contest, Mozammel Hossain. The restricted race came after David Cameron’s former special adviser Daniel Korski withdrew from the race.

Members of the London Conservative party ultimately selected Hall over Mr. Hossain, giving him 57% of the vote.

During the month-long campaign, Ms Hall and Mr Hossain clashed angrily during a campaign debate. She claimed Hossain “doesn’t understand how London works”, while he accused her of posting “hateful and bigoted” messages on Twitter which she said would lose him voter support.

Ms Hall, who has been a member of the London assembly since 2017, will face incumbent Sadiq Khan on May 2.

The result of the vote by some 20,000 London Conservative members was announced at the Battle of Britain bunker in Uxbridge by party chairman Greg Hands in front of MPs and supporters.

She told the activists: “Together we went from having a 100/1 chance to me standing in front of you today. I’m really grateful to you guys and I’m really thankful for everything you’ve done.”

“It is a great honor to be your candidate for Mayor of London, thank you, and it leaves me with a significant responsibility. I will work tirelessly to defeat Sadiq Khan and give Londoners the opportunity they desperately need.”

Ms Hall added: “We need to show that we display the values ​​of everyday Londoners, working hard to support their family, being honest about who they are and what they believe in, acting selflessly in the interest of others.

“Those are my values, those are conservative values ​​and those are Londoners’ values, but those are not Sadiq Khan’s values. He has absolutely no interest in helping others. He only cares about himself.

“He goes on a trip to the cannabis factories while young people are stabbed to death on our streets. He’s more interested in selling his book…and when things go wrong, he hires an army of advisers to convince you that it’s not really his fault.”

He added: “Some newspaper publishers think we have given up, but let me tell you this. I will never give up London.

“People may mock and underestimate us, but we will give our all to the city that has given us so much.

“Colleagues, we can do it, we’ll beat him (Mr Khan) and bring about the change Londoners are asking for.”

Ms Hall attracted considerable support from rank and file Conservatives in the race, including prominent MPs such as Paul Scully and Bob Blackman, as well as Cabinet Minister Kemi Badenoch.
