Sadiq Khan dissembles with cover from BBC
This BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-44807972 repeats Sadiq Khan's words re free speech and censorship:
'London Mayor Sadiq Khan has been speaking to BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
He defended his decision to allow the Trump baby balloon to fly over Westminster.
"Can you imagine if we limited freedom of speech because someone might get hurt?"
The UK has a "rich history" of the right to protest, and as mayor he "should not be the arbiter of what is in good taste or bad taste".'
The BBC seem to have forgotten https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-36516378 from 2016
'Adverts promoting negative body images will be banned across the Transport for London (TfL) network from next month.
As part of his mayoral election manifesto Sadiq Khan pledged to ban adverts promoting "unhealthy or unrealistic" body images.'
Free speech except when it offends Sadiq Khan's sensibilities? BBC supporting Labour figures at all times?
