He,d better get his skates on,next election he,'ll be history,he would be now if they hadn,t postponed the election due to corona,think he realises that and in the meantime is doing more damage to London than the Luftwaffe.

Really, can you explain exactly how removing statues and renaming streets will do that?

I’m sure the UK can find better people to celebrate than slave traders.

Put up a statue to one.

I have no doubt this story is false, but entertaining nonetheless.

A chap had gone to Germany to visit an RAF base, and was struggling to find his way around town.

"Excuse me, can you tell me where I might find a car park?"
"Are you here to visit the RAF?"

"Yes"

"Thanks to the RAF, we have more car parks than any other city in Germany"

Where did I mention renaming streets?but as you bought up the subject of streets Khan is shutting a lot of public highways to all but bikes and buses,and increased the congestion charge and extended it to weekends,tfl is one billion pounds in deficit <deleted> up the wall mainly down to vanity projects, I live in London and my contribution to the London assembly via my rates increased 3.6% this year what's the inflation rate?in the meantime cannot help but notice you,'re posting a lot of "confused" emojis,get some help this confusion could be a sign of something serious.

As the OP is about renaming streets and removing statues I felt that was the relevant aspect of my post your analogy was directed towards. 
 

The rest of your post appears to be a rant because the cost of living in London is high. 
 

Don’t live there if that’s the case, my relatives there are coping quite well.

Pulling down a statue of a slave trader in Bristol, painting Churchill’s statue, this is just vandalism, we can learn from the past but we shouldn’t attempt to rewrite it.

 

 It is not vandalism , it is a realistic opinion of of the truth .

    Which the UK educational systems , controlled by the establishment ,

The new generation , of young graduates are not , believing in this historic British  , BS ..

Completely disagree with your jaundiced view of Mayor Khan.

Up to you,still you don,t have to live in London so think as I do and have to subsidise his crackpot schemes and pay his wages via the payment of my rates that my opinion carries more weight than yours.I also have to put up with the consequences of his actions.
