Whilst one Left-Wing comedian can suggests the throwing of acid instead of milkshakes.

Woe betide a Right-Wing comedian if he dares to state that the present Mayor of London has 'f***** up' his home town.

Yes out comes their Race Card once again, where is the racism in that?

No racism in his tweet.
I can't see anything racist in what he posted
I wonder if JD will visit London if he is offered money to appear in London ?
Jim Davidson is a stupid bigoted deeply unpleasant human being, but I see nothing racist in his pointless nasty rant.

To be racist, in my view, he would have to accuse Mr Khan of having created a city with which Mr Davidson is less than happy, by dint of his ethnicity, which was not mentioned.

Mr Davidson views Mr Khan as a less-than-effective mayor, but does not attribute those failings to Mr Khan's ethnic origins.

Mr Davidson remains what he has always been, a small-minded opinionated loud-mouthed idiot - but not a racist, at least on this occasion.
No racism there.

Davidson is simply expressing an opinion which would be replicated many times over by other Londoners.

It speaks volumes where some of the other social media comments are concerned who make it personal. One even suggests he made playground experience in the 70's terrible for him/her!

I am not a Londoner but I can imagine the city has changed considerably over recent decades. Whether for the better is highly subjective.

But, Davidson is entitled to take an impassioned stance for his views on the capital which, in his opinion, has deteriorated beyond his level of acceptability.

Why can't you just answer the question without the need to air your pointless nasty and bigoted insults.

They say much more about you than can ever be said about Jim Davidson.
"Why can't you just answer the question without the need to air your pointless nasty and bigoted insults."

Says Mr Pot to Mr Kettle...
Actually Mr Khan's ethnic origins can't be removed from his actions when carrying out his office. One of his first actions as Mayor of London was to have removed all the posters from the London Underground depicting a young woman clad in a bikini, which I think was for a dietary product.
No other non-Muslim mayor (Livingstone, Johnson) would have even considered doing this.
Well AOG, they were my thoughts as well and i did wonder if Mr Davidson had been an ABer ( and who knows) may well be, if the post of A-H would have been assessed as "against Site Rules and removed.
In determining whether he may be a racist, it is helpful to look at Davidson's character historically. He has been controversial in the past hasn't he?

I think that is why A-H stated 'on this occasion'?
No. It wasn't racist in any way. Anyone asking whether, or thinking it was is a first class berk who doesn't know what racism is.

AOG is asking!
love jim davidson, bloody race card being played again by these liberal leftwing loonies, sick of it.

he said say it how it is ! and good on him too !
I don't see how it's racist, his comments refer to the mayors performance or lack of it. Race, religion et al are not mentioned. Is every criticism of a non Caucasian now considered to be racist?
JD insists he was talking about traffic and congestion.

Last year, he did the same when climate protestors caused him to be stuck in traffic.
No.
His comments on traffic only become racist if he concentrates on black cabs.
Not a hint of racism in his tweet. He's entitled to his view the same as anybody else. IMO hes been singled out because of his "status"

If you are referring to his very popular and endearing character Chalky White, that was perhaps stereotyping the mannerisms of a West Indian person of those times, but definitely not racist.

How many comedians stereotype Scottish, Irish or even English persons, is that also being racist?
