It was at school that he first began to gravitate towards politics, joining the Labour Party aged 15. He credits the school’s head, Naz Bokhari, who happened to be the first Muslim headteacher at a UK secondary school, with making him realise “skin colour or background wasn’t a barrier to making something with your life”.

Mayor Sadiq Khan’s back story should be set in stone within the Handbook of Audacious Meritocracy. The son of a bus driver father and seamstress mother from Pakistan, he has six brothers and a sister. They were raised in a tiny, suburban, three-bedroom council house. Khan went to a tough state school and credits his principal, Naz Bokhari, with making him realise “skin colour or background wasn’t a barrier to making something of your life”.
