TAXPAYER’S cash is once again to be wasted by the woke – this time by Labour’s London Mayor on a divisive project to smear the capital and its history.
The 15-strong task force is to consist of far-left activists, including a protestor who ranted at the Queen during a live ceremony, and another who openly supported the illegal vandalising of statues.
Toyin Agbetu, a social rights activist, is among those making up the unelected rabble of race-baiters. Agbetu previously praised activists who painted red the hands of slaver Robert Geffrye’s statue in Hackney, to symbolise the ‘blood on his hands’ – hailing them as committing ‘a transgressive, yet progressive act of public service’ by ‘making visible the history and human cost of those involved in such monstrous evil’.
Joining him is prominent art critic Aindrea Emelife, who supported the statue of Bristol slave trader Edward Colston being replaced with a BLM activist.
The task force will also bizarrely see actor Riz Ahmed, made famous by the terrorist parody film Three Lions. Ahmed has previously said on national television that Boris Johnson is ‘an out-and-out complete c***’ who is ‘overtly racist’ and ‘blatantly lies to the public’.
The move comes as growing concerns over BLM’s strong connections to Marxism continue to fester, with worries concerning the true agenda behind Khan’s task force and its hiring of individuals loyal to the BLM movement.
Conservative London mayoral candidate Shaun Bailey, said: ‘London is a city built on history — sometimes bad, more often good, and always complicated. But Sadiq Khan wants to reduce our history to politics.
‘A commission of fifteen unelected activists should not get to decide which statues to pull down and which streets to rename — which history my children are allowed to see.
‘My preference is always to put up new statues instead of tearing down old ones. That’s how we truly celebrate our black role models and pioneering women.’
