London mayor Sadiq Khan is all over the media at the moment, supposedly decrying extremism.

In 2001 Khan was the human rights lawyer who campaigned for Louis Farrakhan, the racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic "Nation of Islam" preacher, to be allowed into the UK. He managed to get the ban overturned but it was reinstated on appeal.
Last year, he defended his campaign saying "even the worst people need defence".

Fighting extremism? Don't make me laugh!
