Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has responded to the result of the EU Referendum, after London bucked the national trend and voted to remain in the EU. In his response he says that despite being outside the EU “there is no doubt that London will continue to be the successful city it is today”, but will “push” to ensure that London is represented at any EU-UK Government Brexit negations. Meanwhile, a petition calling for London to become an independent city state has received 175,175 signatures. Sadiq Khan’s office has responded saying the Mayor will be demanding more autonomy for London and wants “the devolution of fiscal responsibility including tax raising powers, as well as more control over business and skills, housing and planning, transport, health and policing and criminal justice.”
