Sadiq Khan issues grovelling apology after video shows him using 'Uncle Toms' slur against moderate Muslims
by James Tapsfield
Labour's candidate for London Mayor has issued a grovelling apology after it emerged that he had described moderate Muslim groups as 'Uncle Toms'.
Sadiq Khan said he regretted using the term, which is notorious racial slur used against black people to suggest that they are subservient to whites.
But he also insisted he would 'respect' everyone in the capital if he was elected, and lashed out at tactics employed by Tory rival Zac Goldsmith during the battle.
The incendiary claim surfaced in an interview with Iranian-backed Press TV from 2009, when Mr Khan was 'minister for community cohesion', in charge of Government efforts to stamp out extremism.
