Sadiq Khan tipped as a future PM and one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people

Sadiq Khan has been named in Time magazine’s list of 100 most influential people – and tipped as a future Prime Minister.

The London Mayor beat the likes of current PM Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to feature on the annual list.

And he was named by billionaire former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg as a future contender for the job of Prime Minister.

“He’s a rising star who has a bright political future. Somewhere down the road, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see him living at 10 Downing Street,” Mr Bloomberg wrote in his summary of why Mr Khan made Time’s list.

Mr Khan was also praised for being a “voice of reason” on Brexit as he pushes for close ties between Britain and the EU to continue, as well as taking on Donald Trump on the issue of Islamophobia.

“At a time of increasingly divisive political rhetoric, he has been an important voice for tolerance and unity,” wrote Mr Bloomberg. “When President Trump retweeted videos from a British anti-Muslim group, Sadiq rightfully denounced it.”

The Mayor tweeted that he was “honoured” to be named on the list.

He wrote: “Honoured to be named in this year’s @TIME 100 list alongside so many truly inspirational people from the worlds of tech, art, literature, sport and more. Thank you to @MikeBloomberg for the very kind words. #Time100”.

Others who featured on the list included Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Weeks before she marries into the Royal family, Ms Markle was praised as a future “princess for the people” and someone “the world can be inspired by”.

Meanwhile Prince Harry was hailed by music legend Elton John for his “rare ability to walk into a room full of strangers and make everyone feel comfortable and at ease”.

John added: “What a joy it has been to see that young boy grow to inherit his mother’s warmth, sense of humor and courage to stand up and champion the causes he truly believes in.”

Scottish Conservatives’ leader Ruth Davidson pop star Rihanna, and tennis legend Roger Federer were also among those who made the list.

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A number of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?
