Imagine a Mayor of one of the most diverse capital cities in the world talking about gender equality at the well renowned Fabian Centre. Who would think that a group calling itself the ‘Pendragon Society’ would attempt to interrupt the speech in one of the most progressive organisations which champions equal rights. Well, that is what happened today.

Political correspondents at the event also mentioned that some members of this group stated that Sadiq Khan should not be the Mayor of London, because he is Muslim. One of the individuals, Davey Russell, is someone who we have written about before and who has filmed himself throwing the Quran onto the floor and spitting on it.

One of the people in the clip was identified to be Davey Russell, a leading member of the English Defence League and who has posted rants about Islam on You Tube before and as we have stated, torn pages of the Quran and spat at them.
