London Mayor suggests another referendum on Britain's withdrawal from the EU

on Sun Sep 16, 2018 11:53 am


London Mayor Sadik Khan called for another referendum on Brexit.

In an article for The Guardian Khan, he writes that the British government failed to fulfill its task of concluding a beneficial agreement with the European Union, so it is necessary to give people the opportunity to speak.

He reminded that he advocated Britain remaining in the EU, while respecting the results of the vote.

"Chaotic approach to negotiations" can cause serious damage not only for London, but for the whole of Britain, he writes.

"The sad truth is that Teresa May did not succeed in agreeing on Brexit's position with his party, let alone an agreement with the European Union," wrote Zadok Khan.

Khan believes that now Britain has two options - the exit from a "bad deal", or exit without an agreement.

"So, after a long reflection, I decided that people should say the final word. This means voting for any agreement with the European Union, without entering into an agreement or maintaining it as part of the European Union, "Khan said.

Earlier in the European Commission stated that the EU and Britain will maintain close trading after Brexit. British Prime Minister Teresa May announced he would personally negotiate with the EU.

Recall that on July 9, Foreign Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson resigned . Johnson's decision was announced 30 minutes before Mae had to speak before Parliament about her new Brexit plan. The Brexit minister, David Davis, also resigned due to dissatisfaction with the results of the meeting with Prime Minister Teresa May, who discussed the exit plan with the EU. For several hours in Britain, a new Brexit minister was appointed - Dominique Raab was named.

Johnson and Davis criticized the UK's exit plan with the EU, agreed by the British government. Queen Elizabeth II gave royal consent to Brexit's law. This plan includes, in particular, the preservation of the free trade area with the EU:

On June 23, 2016, a referendum was held in Britain, which showed that 52% of Britons prefer to leave the European Union.

On March 29, 2017, the United Kingdom officially informed the European Union of its intention to leave the EU by launching the Brexit procedure.

At the talks, Britain and the EU decided to extend Brexit's transition to 2020. It was reported that Brexit's final cost for Britain could reach 55 billion euros. This amount will be paid by the country to the EU by 2064.
