London Mayor Sadiq Khan drew cold comfort from new coronavirus safety rules on Thursday - since the heating at City Hall had broken down.
The glass "Fencing Mask" building across the Thames from the Tower of London was so cold on the October morning that Khan wore a Barbour-style quilted vest under his suit jacket for his press conference.

Khan (sadly) is LONDON's Mayor, yet he is trying to dictate NATIONAL Lockdown policy for the whole of England.
Don't you just wish he would sort our the disasters that are TFL, knife crime, Covid and the death of our Capital? pic.twitter.com/eKLF0Oc3Ll
“Heating has broken – along with most of his promises!!" London Assembly Conservative group leader Susan Hall tweeted in response to political gossip site Guido Fawkes poking holes in Khan's "stab vest" look.

Other Twitter users couldn't help but remark on the mayor's bold smart-casual 'gilet bleu' fashion statement.
