5'3" on a good day. Definitely suffering from "Little Man Syndrome" too.

Absolute clown. 5’4” max.
I would prefer we didn't call people clowns. It's interesting that height was no barrier in him becoming a mayor of london.
John Oleinecka said on 5/Jun/19
Actually, he looks shorter than 5'3", and when he speaks,,,,even shorter!

Certainly suffers with little man syndrome. 5 Ft 4.

Passed him on the street in London.
I'm 5'7" and I was noticeably taller.
I would guess he's only 5"4'

Personally I'd give him about 3ft tall....
In reality around 5'4.
Denis said on 9/Dec/17
I am 5ft 6in and I think I am taller than him. I have done well in business and it is sad that people get so screwed up about height. I see everyone as the same in every respect and concentrate on what they bring to the table. Probably the reason I have been successful.

i'm almost certain he's 5 ft 4 and 3/4 inches
Editor Rob: Sadiq may well measure that, I am sure he has a greater chance of being under 5ft 5 than he does of measuring 5ft 6 barefoot.

Met this guy when I lived near Balham (he Was the MP) I'm 183cm, I was clearly 25cm taller, He 5ft 2.5" at best, even my 166cm Wife was 6-8cm taller

Looks a bit taller than Hillary Clinton, who's listed 5'4.5 here. I'd say 5'5 is not far off, maybe 5'4.75? 5'2 is ridiculous, he is clearly taller than that.
Rick said on 6/Oct/17
He must be shorter than this. He is constantly being towered by pretty average looking people. I would have guessed 5'4 maximum.
Gladstone Screwer said on 11/Aug/17
Rob, I have to agree with Doom. This guy is noticeably short, I don't think Doom's 5'2" is far off. No way on earth is he the 5'6" he claims.
A ridiculous individual.

I live in an affluent white part of England and the average women is about 5'7 here. I see 5'9/10 women a lot when I'm out and rarely see a 5'3 or below one. 5'6 for Sadiq.
said on 21/Jun/17
@littlesue No way. Average uk female is 5'4 max, never is it 5'5, maybe in the next 50 years but not now. 5'5 is beginning of tall for a woman in uk and its rare to see a woman of 5'5 just as it is rare to see a man of 6 foot (beginning of tall for uk male)
Sadiq is 5'2 if you ask me.
Editor Rob: he might seem a very short guy at times, but I struggle to see him much under 5ft 5 if measured, let alone 5ft 2.
littlesue said on 17/Jun/17
Doom would say average UK woman now more 5ft 4/5ft 5 although for Asian women it would be smaller, can't see him as low as 5ft 2. Would agree on 5ft 5.
Doom said on 17/Jun/17
Rob this guy needs a downgrade to 5'2. The average woman in uk is 5'3/5'4, in his pics on twitter he is shorter than most of the women in photos with him.
Hes bang on 5'2, not a mm over.
Ferdinand said on 15/Jun/17
Yeah, Corbyn is same height as me (weak 5'9) so this seems right for Khan
SAK said on 10/Jun/17
He always looks super short. I would have guessed him at 5'4".
For some reason I always expect male politicians to be above average to tall.
Quoter86 said on 6/Jun/17
Rob, Ed Miliband is clearly 6'0 next to 6'1 David Cameron. And Sadiq looks 6" shorter than Miliand (google image search them together) - he has to be 5'6.
Joe blow said on 5/Jun/17
Ppl fighting over whether hes 5'6 or 5'5.wow... Ive measured myself a dozen times and still not sure if im 5'8 or 5'9.
Rick said on 5/Jun/17
5'4 max. There's at least 5 inches between him and Corbyn who looks a comfortable 5'9.
AH said on 5/Jun/17
He's quite clearly 5'4" (163 cm). Needs a downgrade.
Lex said on 12/May/17
Ive met jeremy corbyn and for pete's sake, corbyn to me was around my height (5'8.5"), so Sadiq cant be more than 5'4" at best judging by pictures of the two politicians. Id say sadiq is 5'4" +/- 0.5" so maybe an extremely weak 5'5" on an excellent day
Chris said on 28/Mar/17
A lot of the problem is a 3-4 inch gap in height actually looks like a hell of a lot when you look at two people. So people see a height difference like that and think it's a lot more than it is.
So you guys see someone whose a lot shorter than say 6'3, and think he's 5'9, when it's more like 5'11
Chris said on 28/Mar/17
He's not 5'4. That's stupid. I saw him with Ed Milliband(6 feet) once and he was about 5-6 inches shorter. Making him 5'6 or 5'7
Shorter people actually do look really small stood with 6 footers. But it doesn't mean they're 8-9 inches shorter! a 4-5 inch height advantage looks a lot more than it is.
Galathea said on 24/Mar/17
Comparing pictures where he stands beside many celebrities, I'd say 5'4" inches (1.63 cm).

Hello again, Rob. Don't mean to be cruel (at least not intentionally..) but seriously, just look at this guy next to the (estimated) circa 5ft9in Corbyn; he barely reaches his shoulder. He is clearly not 5ft5in.. Anyway, he appears to be a decent guy and I won't comment about his diminutive height (my height estimate for him is 5ft2max) any further..;-))
Editor Rob: he can look a bit under 5ft 5 with Jeremy.
Tom Raven said on 31/Aug/16
Met the guy yesterday, really nice bloke although yes is is quite short, but does it really matter as long as he does a good job !
said on 20/Aug/16
People are saying this is inaccurate, but I met him at a EU rally and would say he is being honest. Im 171cm with shoes on and he was probably 2 or 3cm shorter than me (I did get a photo so can compare).
Editor Rob: it can show how one person sees 5ft 6, another could see 5ft 4, it's a big difference really!
Mickey said on 19/Aug/16
Definitely inaccurate - I've stood next to him in similar shoes and I could easily see over the top of his head - I'm 5'7".. I'd say 5'4" tops.
heelshealheight said on 23/May/16
Rob, this guy is way below 5ft6. There's a recent photo of him standing next to Nicola Sturgeon and she's actually 'towering' over him (Nicola is never taller than anyone unless he/she is in kindergarten..). Ed Miliband (circa 5ft11) is a giant next to him. Albeit one of the innumerable bogus height claims, this guy has gone way overboard..

It thought this was George cloney when i was scrolling down

@Aaron Zamora Agreed he does look like a shorter South Asian version of George Clooney.
Zach said on 17/May/16
Need a listing for Jeremy Corbyn...
Arch Stanton said on 17/May/16
Short guy. Needs an IQ test too ;-)
