    BACON adverts banned by Transport for somewhere I used to call London

    https://www.lbc.co.uk/news/bacon-and...-allowed-tube/

    A plethora of other titles run the story, with vegan and veggie terrorists in particular bliss.

    I bet Zac Goldsmith wouldn't have banned it though ...

    London underground, where have you been mate?

    They are calling it "fat shaming". I guess the Muslim mayor is the one to decide what a woman's body should look like and how much clothing the woman must wear. So much for that freedom of expression it London. I guess if you eat healthy and exercise you are shaming the fat people.

    The Muslim mayor is deciding what women should look like. That is what a dictator does. Dictators decide for you.

    He has banned bacon and bikinis. I am sure it is just a coincidence it aligns with his religious faith.
