Brexit – London Mayor Sadiq Khan Says New EU Vote 'Only Approach Left' (Video)

Every day now, the pressure is growing on British Prime Minister Theresa May to abandon her ‘Chequers’ Brexit proposal which she wishes to present to the EU next month (but which must get approved by the British parliament first).

Whereas yesterday Ms Emily Thornberry, co-leader of the main opposition party Labour, warned that they would be voting against her plan, today another powerful political figure spoke up.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sadiq Khan has issued a dramatic call for another referendum on EU membership, saying that the people must be given the chance to reject a Brexit deal that will be bad for the economy, jobs and the NHS. <a href="">@AndrewCastle</a> asks: would you welcome a People&#39;s Vote? <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; LBC (@LBC) <a href="">September 16, 2018</a></blockquote>

This time round, it is London Mayor Mr Sadiq Khan who claims to have changed his mind about a second referendum in the past months whereas the powerful Labour politician (who tried to reason people during the Brexit campaign to ‘remain’) stated after the original vote (in 2015) that he would respect the outcome.

But now, writing in The Observer at first, Mr Khan claimed: “After careful consideration, I’ve decided 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.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Labour Remoaner Marr gently permits Sadiq Khan to plant his Brexit denying bomb and then accuses Michael Gove of being allied with fascists and anti-semites. It seems the Establishment failure is not limited to our politicians and their personal ambitions. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Robert Johnson (@RobertJE7) <a href="">September 16, 2018</a></blockquote>

He added that another public vote was “never inevitable” or “something I ever thought I’d have to call for”.

“But the government’s abject failure – and the huge risk we face of a bad deal or a ‘no-deal’ Brexit – means that giving people a fresh say is now the right – and only – approach left for our country.”

As his comments cause quite a stir, he was invited to the BBC’s Sunday political talk show with Andrew Marr to explain.

Asked why he would consider such a risky approach (the Brexit deadline is March 2019), Mr Khan said the UK was left with two "incredibly risky" possibilities.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">“The British public should have a say on the outcome of the negotiations” - London Mayor <a href="">@SadiqKhan</a> calls for second <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Brexit</a> vote <a href=""></a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Marr</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; BBC Politics (@BBCPolitics) <a href="">September 16, 2018</a></blockquote>

"Both these scenarios are a million miles from what was promised during the referendum campaign, only further exposing the lies and mistruths sold to the public."

"I don't believe Theresa May has the mandate to gamble so flagrantly with the British economy and people's livelihoods."
