Everything wrong with London Sadiq Khan's fault, says man from Norwich

A MAN has cast a damning verdict on Sadiq Khan’s leadership as mayor of London, even though he lives in a different city 120 miles away.

Bill McKay believes Khan’s seven-year tenure represents a gross betrayal of the magnificent legacy of London’s finest mayor since Dick Whittington, Boris Johnson.

McKay said: “Everyone knows that London is overrun with knife-wielding criminals and you can’t pop out for milk without being murdered. That’s a fact, the Mail Online says so.

“And then there’s this ridiculous Ultra Low Emission Zone which Khan says will reduce the amount of toxic pollutants Londoners breathe in, but is obviously just a cover for his Marxist war on motorists.

“Did you know he’s recently extended the zone right out to the M25 in some places? It won’t be long before it reaches Norwich, you mark my words. Then we’ll all have to choose between cancer and driving half a mile to Tesco, and I know which side I’ll be on.”

Asked whether his antipathy towards Khan had anything to do with the fact that he is Muslim, McKay said: “No, of course not. But there’s less of them in Norwich and we can drive wherever we like, so you do the maths.”

Five signs the internet is becoming middle-aged

THE internet is no longer the trendy new kid on the block it used to be. Here are five signs it is fast approaching middle-age, just like you.

It’s obsessed with dental implants

Young people chew sweets and swig pop with cavalier abandon as if their teeth will last forever. The middle-aged, the internet included, know this isn’t the case. That’s why you see disturbing graphics of implants getting nailed into gums underneath every article, including this one. This also explains why you’re bombarded with erectile dysfunction and weight loss ads. Your search history is only partly to blame.

It’s developed problematic opinions

The internet can’t keep up with what it can and cannot say anymore. And like most middle-aged people with dodgy opinions, it’s learnt to bury its unsavoury views and only bring them up in front of likeminded wrong ‘uns. It’s too set in its ways to change its mind now though, so you’re just going to have to learn to ignore its worst bits.

It finds young people confusing

Despite the swathes of personal information that Gen Z willingly upload to the internet on a second-by-second basis, the internet still has no idea what they’re like. And just like every middle-aged person afraid of the younger generation, it plays it safe by pandering to them with TikTok and then demonising their every decision on Facebook later.

It has an odd, patchy memory

The internet’s selective memory is a sure sign that it’s getting on a bit. It can’t remember the password you told it not to forget, and if you accidentally close a tab then that shit’s gone forever. It does remember that porn video you watched once in 2017 though, and still uses that data to advertise to you to this very day.

It finds sex shocking

The internet was a freewheeling maverick in its youth that wouldn’t be afraid to barrage you with racy pop-ups, but in its advancing years all of that smut has been neatly compartmentalised as if the internet’s ashamed of it. Although to be fair there’s a lot of weird stuff like hentai, so maybe it made the right call.
