Grandstanding Khan Calls For Second Referendum
Fresh from being reselected as Labour’s candidate for the Mayoral election for London in 2020, Sadiq Khan has once again waded into the Brexit debate, calling for a second referendum.
Implausibly, he claims that he has acted in “good faith” while discharging his duties as Mayor of London: “I’ve given the government every bit of advice and information available to City Hall and every opportunity to strike a deal that would minimise the impact on people’s livelihoods.” Now, increasingly “alarmed” at the “chaotic” reality of the Brexit negotiations and Theresa May’s difficulties within the Conservative Party, Khan feels that the only two potential outcomes are a “bad deal” or “terrifyingly” a no-deal.
So, of course, “after a lot of careful consideration,” he now feels; “the people must get a final say. This means a public vote on any deal or a vote on a no-deal, alongside the option of staying in the EU.” He wouldn’t be “doing his job” if he did not stand up for Londoners now and speak out.
He has not however been doing his job for some time as many Londoners will doubtless attest. In reality, his intervention should be judged in the light of the ongoing and furious debate within the Labour Party which is just as intense as the divisions within the government. Since he has now been reselected it is an urgent priority of Khan’s opponents to now solidify their plans for opposing him in 2020.
