Sadiq Khan plans to go clubbing after restrictions ease

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has said he’s planning to go clubbing after "Freedom Day" (July 19).

Speaking to UNILAD, the Mayor urged young people to continue getting their vaccinations, while also revealing his plans for after lockdown.

“I’m somebody who has not been clubbing for 25 years, so I’m looking forward to going clubbing.”

He then elaborated on what type of clubs he’s looking to visit, saying he’d go for places playing “80s music or R&B.”

“I was an embarrassing dad dancer before I was a dad,” He continued, “I’m not going to change.”

The vaccination rollout in the UK has been largely successful, with more than 50% of 18-29 year olds receiving their first vaccinations, Khan insisted that this must continue in order to minimise the risk surrounding re-opening.

‘What’s really important is for Londoners to be aware that this virus will be here for some time, so what we’ve got to try and do is mitigate [the risk.] That’s why it’s so important to get the jab.’ Khan said.

A new incentive is being offered in order to boost vaccine uptake, with Londoners who get vaccinated or booking a vaccination having the opportunity to enter a draw to win two tickets to the final of Euro 2020.

Despite this, Khan is still asking Londoners to remain cautious even after re-opening in order to keep the public safe and stop large outbreaks of the virus.
