The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has never been a big fan of Brexit, and he has now made his strongest statement yet against the will of the people who voted to Leave the European Union in June 2016.
In a statement that contains a number of comments that will enrage the 51.9%, Khan has said that Brexit can be stopped with another referendum in order to try and get the ‘right result’ as far as he is concerned.
He even told a gathering of people that he would like to see the blue flag of the EU flying in London forever.
He just doesn’t get it, does he?
After mentioning the possibility of a second referendum, he added: “For it to have credibility with the British public, there would have to be a Labour manifesto offer, because the public would say, not unreasonably, ‘Hold on a sec, we voted to leave and you’re now sticking two fingers up at us.”
“You’d have to spell out, in black and white, what we’d do if we won the general election. What could trump the referendum result is us having a manifesto offer saying, we would not leave the EU, or we would have a second referendum.”
We’ve known for a while that as far as Khan is concerned, London is its own special case that should apparently have the right to go against what the majority voted for.
He has done nothing but Remoan ever since the result became known, with his whining even encouraging people to set up petitions with the aim of London becoming an independent nation that would stay within the EU.
It is well worth remembering that there were still many people in London who voted Leave – particularly in East London and Havering.
Sadiq Khan has to bear in mind that he is their mayor as well, but perhaps Havering residents’ recent demands to become independent of City Hall speak volumes.
