Protestors have disrupted a speech by London mayor Sadiq Khan to the left-wing Fabian Society, attempting to subject him to a citizen’s arrest.
They are reported to have been motivated by Khan’s continued efforts to sabotage Britain’s exit from the European Union and by his outspoken opposition to U.S. President Donald Trump visiting the country.
Despite claims by Khan in March 2017 that London is “the safest global city in the world, and one of the safest cities in the world,” the latest crime statistics show youth homicides are up by an astonishing 70 per cent.

The protestors at Khan’s speech told Sky News political correspondent Laura Bundock that politicians are “employed by us, the people” and “should do as we say”, but had “broken their oaths of office”.
