Big commiserations to Zac Goldsmith, the Tory candidate for London Mayor.

Mr Goldsmith and the Tory Party tried desperately hard to smear Labour’s candidate Sadiq Khan, not least by by writing an article for the Daily Mail imploring voters not to vote for Mr Khan because the Labour party ‘thinks terrorists [are] its friends’.  

Although the voting isn’t quite over yet (at the time of writing), Mr Khan has 80% of first-preference votes counted for. Pollster Peter Kellner from YouGov has said that: ‘Sadiq Khan has won without question’.

So the celebrations have already started for Labour, and Mr Goldsmith’s fear campaign is officially over.

And already, one Labour party member has already written to Zac Goldsmith to *comfort him* on this dark day, and it’s brutal.


Twitter user Ido Vock, who describes himself as ‘Frequently bemused’, posted the letter to Mr Goldsmith, which is essentially just four paragraphs of very long ‘haha’s.

At the end, Mr Vock says that he joined Labour this week due to Mr Goldsmith’s “racist, dog-whistle campaign” against Sadiq Khan ‘despite their (Labour’s) own well-documented issues with racism’ – presumably referring to the Ken Livingstone saga of last week.

Zac Goldsmith commiseration letter We’re assuming Mr Vock meant to add a ‘soz about losing’, but hey – this letter was just as effective.

Evolve needs your help more than ever.

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
