AND is that enough? 

It is certainly more that most have achieved that go into politics. 
Not sure what you are trying to get at. I am no big fan of his, just like I was certainly no big fan of BoJo when he was in the seat. Just like all those who are now greeting because the SNP won in Scotland. It is how democracy works. More people voted for Khan than the alternatives

The only thing I can really be happy about is that bampot Fox lost his deposit

Think I read that he's still around after being given some cushy job. Adviser to Hutchinson Ports £100K pa (how to get a government contract for your port without any ships ever docking there). Also believe he is surprisingly supposed to be an MP maybe for Rigsby's  constituency :),

Surprisingly , nay , shockingly he used to be a social democrat member..

Khan's share of the vote dropped dramatically.

Did it? Well let's examine that claim...

Sadiq Kahn got 40% of the 1st preference votes this time, compared to 44.2% in 2016.

The Tory candidate got 35.3% of the 1st preference votes this time, compared to 35% in 2016, so the Tories didn't increase their vote by much at all. 

However, Sadiq Kahn got a whopping 69.5% of the 2nd preference votes this time, for a total of 1,206,034 (48%); compared to 56.8% in 2016 and a total of 1,310,143 (50.4%).

So by some measures Khan's share of the vote actually increased dramatically, but overall it only dropped slightly and the Tories certainly didn't increase their vote. I think it could also be argued that the unprecedented number of Mickey Mouse candidates at this election (including Laurence Fox) also distorted the first round.

Oh , of course you can . How about he banned adverts for ladies underwear and junk food on Tfl and cast them £13 million in lost advertising  revenue as a result .  He increased his own press office costs to promote his media image by £200,000  and cut police id fire budgets by £130 million then failed to deliver Crossrail on time. Hows that ?

Out of interest, what new measures have been introduced to combat knife crime and protect women?

I’m sure he was quite vociferous about those, wasn’t he?  :rolleyes:
