London: Islamist mayor brings Sharia to London passively, images of bikini clad women will be banned

London-Muslim-Mayor-To-Ban-Sexualised-Images-Of-Women-under-sharia

Adverts promoting negative body images will be banned across the Transport for London (TfL) network from next month.

As part of his mayoral election manifesto Sadiq Khan pledged to ban adverts promoting “unhealthy or unrealistic” body images.

The advertising watchdog received 378 complaints in 2015 about a weight-loss advert that asked customers if they were “beach body ready?”

Mr Khan has now asked TfL to set up its own advertising steering group.

The Protein World “beach body ready” promotional posters were defaced in Tube stations and a petition was started calling for the adverts to be banned, however the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) watchdog later ruled the advert depicting a bikini-clad female model was neither offensive nor irresponsible.

The steering group will advise TfL’s advertising partners and stakeholders of the mayor’s new policy and will ensure adverts continue to adhere to the regulations set out by the ASA.

Mr Khan said: “As the father of two teenage girls, I am extremely concerned about this kind of advertising which can demean people, particularly women, and make them ashamed of their bodies. It is high time it came to an end.”

Graeme Craig, TfL commercial development director, said: “Advertising on our network is unlike TV, online and print media.14

“Our customers cannot simply switch off or turn a page if an advertisement offends or upsets them and we have a duty to ensure the copy we carry reflects that unique environment.”

Previously, the eating disorders charity Beat said while it recognised advertising and media could not cause eating disorders it was aware of how toxic images could be to an individual.

On the BBC London Facebook page many people were quick to praise the mayor’s initiative. Magdalena Michalik who lives in Greenwich said: “Please ban it. I don’t want my children to look at it!” but others warned it was the start of the “Islamification” of London and said the mayor was adopting this policy because of his religious values.

Sharene Kirchler said: “What happened to free speech? What happened to not being offended by everything. Why is it a matter of state to decide when something so subjective is to be allowed or not?”

The deputy mayor for transport Val Shawcross said the policy was not meant as a “moral judgement”, rather the mayor’s office was working with the advertising industry to ensure images were not used that were potentially harmful to young people’s mental health and how they viewed themselves.

  • This is the United Kingdom not Asia if he attempts to do this then he should be asked to resign immediately as he is discriminating our culture our ways if he does not like it then give him a flight ticket to leave the uk , can’t he see his culture is destroying the relationship we had with so many other religions in the uk this is our country remember ? we have let others share it in peace with us

  • And there it starts, phase 1 of take over Britain. I couldnt believe my eyes when I worked in London last year, I walked down the street in Leyton and people sitting on their doorsteps spat in front of me where I was walking then looking at me wanting a reaction. The place has been taken over, every shop has ethnic owners every hotel and B&B taken over by foreigners. They are not intergrating they are taken over right under our noses it disgusts me.

  • It was pretty obvious he would do this get rid of him.
    This is GREAT BRITAIN for Gods sake what the bloody hell is happening to us.
    This is not my country any more it has gone to pot.
    It’s not too late to turn it round come on let’s make our country GREAT again.

  • What about the thousands of people who didnt complain? This country seems to have forgotten the phrase ‘the needs of the many ‘

    • thousands need to complain but complain to have it remain with bikini girls on them.
      As Brits we need to start and stand up to their ideals which are not compatible with ours.
      While we still have the majority lets say No, to this,No to no go areas,No to islamic marches,throw hate preachers out of the Uk.
      Reject EU laws and the EU Human Rights.
      (we cannot get people out in case it interferes with their rights but anyone who commits crimes like rape,murder and treason ie hate preachers should automatically forego rights and our human right to be safe supercedes theirs.Also ban all new building of religious places of worship for all faiths(cos lets face it we aint building churches)so the muslims cant build more mosques but cannot complain if we say all faiths we need to get Crusader groups in every town cos politicians or police are not going to do it.(Rotherham 1400 girls abused by muslims and the authorities turned a blind eye in case it upset the muslims) Yorkshire Police, Politicians Disgrceful

  • Who the actual fuck does he think he is? You don’t see any British/English officials going over there and saying “we can’t see your face, all burkas are banned.”. Why? Because one of two reasons.
    1) The British are so chickenshit scared to be called racist and the want to be friends with every square meter of countries on this planet that they don’t have the balls to stand up for themselves.
    2. They know no other country in Asia would put up with that shit and consequences would come hard and fast.

    Britain needs to start having a fucking spine.

  • IS LONDON GOING TO THE DARK AGES AS THIS IS HOW I SEE IT. AS A FOREIGNER I CAN’T AGREE WITH THE MAYOR AS HE IS IMPOSING ISLAMIC VALUES. PEOPLE ARE FREE TO DECIDE , NOT THE POLITICIANS DECIDE FOE THEM.

    • unfortunately for you obviously most people in “LONDONISTAN” who could be bothered to vote voted for a sly muslim mayor.
      The rats will come out and vote but white Brits couldn’t be bothered so on your heads be it.
      By allowing rats in as councillors in enclaves of predominantly muslims ,then getting helped in other areas by leftist ,liberal white do gooders they are taking over.
      Lets stand up as Brits vote in a party like UKIP cos the others wont help us then we can start and sort this crap out
