The mayor of London Sadiq Khan has called for holding a second referendum on the question of the feasibility of British exit from the European Union. The politician criticized the Cabinet of Prime Minister Theresa may for failing in his view the negotiations with Brussels on the “broksita”. According to Khan, the British have to say the last word.
Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London: “unfortunately, we are now in a position where the government is negotiating, which will lead to one of two outcomes. Either it will be a bad deal, and that means leaving the EU we will not know what the relationship with the EU we expect in the future, or no transaction at all. Both of these options will harm both London and the country as a whole. So I appeal to the government: the British should speak and on the outcome of these negotiations, and about the possibility to stay in the EU”.
The head of the British Cabinet Theresa may has previously stated that a second referendum on brexia would be a betrayal of democracy. The Minister of the environment of the UK Michael Gove has put London’s mayor criticized:
Michael Gove, the Minister for the environment:
“My concern is that Han basically wants to devalue the vote, which took two and a half years ago. Then it was clear to 17 million 400 thousand voters voted that Britain withdrew from the EU. Sadiq Khan, in fact he says, well, let’s postpone this process, turn it into chaos. I think it would be a huge mistake.”
Last Friday in Dover held a protest action which participants demanded that the authorities provide unbiased and comprehensive information on “broksita”.
The UK will leave the EU at the end of March 2019. Negotiate the terms “of brexia” between London and the EU should be completed before the end of October.
