Sadiq Khan, a British-born Muslim of Pakistani descent, won London's mayoral election with over 50% of the vote. The battle between the Labour man and his Conservative rival was marred by a pernicious attempt to link Mr Khan to Islamic extremism. Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential candidate, said he would make an “exception” for the mayor to his proposed ban on Muslims entering America. Mr Khan dismissed the offer.

In other elections in Britain, the Conservatives surged to replace Labour as the second party in Scotland behind the nationalist SNP, which lost its majority rule. In Wales the right-wing anti-Europe UK Independence Party claimed seven seats, their first ever in the Welsh Assembly. In England Labour avoided the drubbing that was expected in council elections. It still lost seats, though not as many as the ruling Tories.
