不是白人,不是基督徒,不是名校毕业。他,这样一个与上流社会格格不入的外国移民,平凡如你我,一路过关斩将,击败“高富帅”,创造了历史。


工党代表、出身草根的巴基斯坦二代移民Sadiq Khan击败保守党富二代Zac Goldsmith,成为第三位选举产生的大伦敦市长,首位穆斯林市长。

 

他在伦敦南部地区的政府廉价公房里长大,凭借自己的努力考上大学,拿到律师资格证,成为一个律师事务所的合伙人。后来,他成为地区的议员,被选入内阁成为交通大臣,再后来,他顺利当选伦敦市长。他的胜选,让自己成为伦敦、乃至整个西方国家主流城市的第一位穆斯林市长。


在胜选演讲中,这位新晋市长说:“是你们每个伦敦人把不可能变成了可能,我承诺将永远是所有伦敦人的市长,让你们像我一样,不论出身、背景,都能得到这个伟大城市赋予的最好机会。”


以下就是这位刚刚上任的伦敦市长Sadiq Khan发表的胜选演讲。


►演讲全文:


Thank you London!

 

London is the greatest city in the world. I am so proud of our city.

 

I am deeply humbled by the hope and trust you have placed in me today.

 

I grew up on a council estate just a few miles from here. Back then, I never dreamed that someone like me could be elected as Mayor of London.

 

And I want to say thank you to every single Londoner for making the impossible possible today.

 

I have a burning ambition for London - an ambition that will guide me every day as mayor of our great city.

 

I want every single Londoner to get the opportunities that our city gave to me and my family.

 

The opportunities not just to survive, but to thrive. The opportunities to build a better future for you and your family with a decent and affordable home and a comfortable commute you can afford.

 

More jobs with better pay, not just being safe but feeling safe, cleaner air and a healthier city and the opportunities for all Londoners to fulfill their potential.

 

You know, I have been thinking a lot about my late dad today. He was a wonderful man and a great dad.

 

He would have been so proud today, proud that the city (he chose to call his home) has now chosen one of his children to be the mayor.

 

I want to say thank you to my amazing mum - she really is - and to my wonderful wife, my daughters and to my family. Without you, I wouldn't be here today.

 

And I want to say thank you to everyone who worked so hard on this election.

 

To my campaign team, we have run a positive campaign and we've worked our socks off.

 

I want to thank all the other campaign teams too, to every assembly candidate from every party, to the police, the returning officer and all the staff who made the election happen, and of course to all the other mayor candidates.

 

This election was not without controversy and I'm so proud that London has today chosen hope over fear and unity over division.

 

I hope that we will never be offered such a stark choice again.

 

Fear does not make us safer, it only makes us weaker and the politics of fear is simply not welcome in our city.

 

I want to end by making a promise to London - a promise I first made during the campaign, but a promise that I will keep here in City Hall.

 

I promise to always be a mayor for all Londoners.

 

To work hard to make life better for every Londoner, regardless of your background and to do everything in my power to ensure you get the opportunities that our incredible city gave to me.

 

Thank you very much.

报道指出,Sadiq Khan的当选有赖于选民对工党的支持。如果选民对工党的呼声持续高涨,这对于国际留学生来说将会是利好消息。 


在Sadiq Khan当选以前的伦敦市长是upper-class出身来自保守党的Boris Johnson。因为公开支持英国脱欧,这位头发凌乱销魂的伦敦前市长在报章各大媒体中出镜率非常高。


▲这位自带表情包的前市长据说有当选下一任首相的可能,我们拭目以待

 

倘若保守党再次连任,留英政策将会持续紧缩还是如何,目前我们还不敢预测,还得等到2020年的大选,相信到时候小车车都能上天了。


四年内变数可能很多,会更好还是更坏目前我们都不知道。把握现在拥有的才是王道~!
