Just over a week ago, Sadiq Khan decimated the London mayoral election, destroying his opponent, Zac Goldsmith, by over 300,000 votes. Another guy he crushed under the foot of multiculturalism was Paul Golding – leader of Britain First.
How did Golding respond to the utterly embarrassing defeat? He turned his back. Wow, what a stand.
Thousands upon thousands of Twitter users took to the social media site to show their reaction to the pathetic revolt, but now it turns out that political guru and arguably the most controversial British comic of recent times, Frankie Boyle, has also took the piss out of the fool.
Hosting the panel show, Have I Got News For You, Boyle said:
There was quite a sad moment where Paul Golding, who’s the head of Britain First, he turned his back on Sadiq Khan during his acceptance speech.
I thought it’d be good if he’d accidentally turned to face Mecca.

We should probably feel sorry for Paul Golding. The world must be a frightening place if you're that thick. Poor sod. #britainfirst

Haha. Did Paul Golding turn his back on Sadiq Khan? What a monumental weapon that man is.

Representing Labour, Khan, who was previously a human rights solicitor, made history multiple times as the votes rolled in – officially becoming the first British Asian to become Mayor of London, the first Muslim to become Mayor of London, and for being victorious by the biggest voting margin of all time.
The Labour MP ran a campaign based on increasing social mobility, making housing more affordable, and growing the capital’s prosperity.
So much to make a stand against…
