Sadiq Khan Cancels London NYE Fireworks

Following the cancellation of last year’s NYE fireworks in London due to Covid restrictions, Sadiq Khan has announced that this year’s fireworks display has also been cancelled.

The Mayor’s office claim that this is due to the ‘pandemic’ despite the fact that health agencies have declared the pandemic level of Covid to be over. This is also odd timing as the government announced the end to all restrictions three months ago on their ‘freedom day’.

Some still celebrate the cancellation as the Labour Mayor has previously used this taxpayer-funded evening to send political messages such as support for the EU or Black Lives Matter.
