Sadiq Khan has been roundly mocked again on Twitter after he announced he had changed his profile picture. Most of us mere mortals don't feel the need to make a special announcement for such a trivial matter, but thou art not the all powerful king of London who loves himself so dearly.
Sadiq posted his new picture on Thursday night (see above). The photo is doubly special for the mayor - the chap he is standing with is the prolific centre-forward Mo Salah, who not only plays for Sadiq's favourite team Liverpool, but shares his Muslim faith too.
After posting his new picture Khan was inundated with reminders of one of his recent tweets, namely the one in which he implored people to wear face masks this winter. "More people there than on the tube" one commented. "You're just pissing on us and saying it's raining" wrote another. Another wrote: "This was OK because neither one was breathing normally. Mo was holding his breath to protect against the stench of hypocrisy and corruption, and Khunt was just breathing in - the celebrity and fame are what he thrives on". Scores more commented along the lines of 'rules for thee, but not for me' and 'do as I say, not as I do'.
Many others were surprised to learn that Khan was a Liverpool fan, considering he was born in Tooting. "You must be a proud Londoner, supporting Liverpool" was one comment. "You could support a London team, you know... Or a Russian one like Chelsea" another posted humorously.
Khan's ongoing face mask hypocrisy formed part of our latest YouTube video (see below).
Following his Twitter rinsing Khan ditched his Salah profile picture and swapped if for a picture of himself standing in what appears to be the Barbican Conservatory. He is all alone, but still maskless.
