I'm not defending Sadiq Khan at all, but he's a lawyer and I believe that, as such, he is duty bound to provide the best defence he can for his clients. Similar criticism could be levelled at those who have represented killers like the Moors murderers, or any of the many mass murderers we've seen. Under our legal system all are entitled to legal representation, and the code under which lawyers operate is clear, they are not there to judge their clients, they are required to defend them to the best of their ability, irrespective of whether they agree with their clients alleged actions or not.
