Sheffield’s new lord mayor Magid Magid, who entered politics to “fight xenophobia”, has declared the British monarchy “outdated” and said he would refuse to toast to the Queen.
“I hope by the fact I am a black, Muslim immigrant – everything the Daily Mail probably hates – people will look and say ‘In Sheffield we’re proud of doing things differently and celebrating our differences’,” he told The Star on Tuesday.
At 28, Magid became the city’s youngest ever lord mayor when he took on the ceremonial role on Wednesday, having moved to Sheffield from Somalia with his family when he was five years old to “look for a better life”.
Speaking of his role as Sheffield’s first citizen, which according to convention involves acting as a figurehead, meeting with important guests, and attending high-profile functions, Magid said he hopes to appoint rapper Otis Mensah as the city’s first poet laureate.
