LONDON : Sadiq Khan used his first act as Mayor of London to attend the UK's Holocaust Memorial Ceremony Sunday- 24 hours after the last Labour mayor repeated controversial claims that Hitler was a Zionist. 

 

The newly-elected mayor swore to be a leader for all faiths in the capital and was at the Holocaust Remembrance Ceremony in Barnet this afternoon alongside Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, who just last week attacked Jeremy Corbyn by saying Labour had a 'severe' problem with anti-Semitism. 

 

Mr Khan 's visit is hugely symbolic and will be interpreted as another pointed criticism of Jeremy Corbyn's leadership.

 

Mr Corbyn was notably absent from Mr Khan 's official swearing-in ceremony at Southwark Cathedral in South-East London yesterday amid claims that Mr Khan is keen to distance himself from the Labour leader.
