Following Thursday's elections, Sadiq Khan is on course to be the new mayor of London, with his rival Zac Goldsmith trailing a distant second. With Goldsmith's campaign billed as 'racist' and 'divisive' by critics, the Tories will now need to work out who is at fault for his disastrous mayoral bid.

However, while Goldsmith could do with all the friends he can get right now, even his own sister is unimpressed with his efforts. As Khan was crowned mayor, Jemima Khan took to Twitter to congratulate the Labour MP:

She then went on to express her sadness that her brother's Tory campaign had failed to show him for who he is:

So, where does the blame lie -- with Lynton Crosby's CTF Comms for coming up with the strategy, or with Goldsmith for not being able to pull it off?
