'Do you STILL want to stop Brexit?' Marr grills Sadiq Khan over second referendum bid

SADIQ KHAN was put on the spot by Andrew Marr during a fiery interview over whether he “still” wanted to stop Brexit. The Mayor of London has suggested that if MPs vote against the final Brexit deal at the end of negotiations then there could be another referendum. Speaking last month Mr Khan said that if Parliament was to vote against Brexit then it would open “a whole host of questions” about the future of Britain. Speaking on The Andrew Marr Show, the host was quick to ask if the London Mayor “still wanted to stop Brexit”. Mr Khan replied: “Well look, I accept the verdict of the British public, that we are leaving the European Union. “What I am against is no deal with the EU, what I am against is no hard Brexit. “What I want is a Brexit that is good for jobs, good for prosperity.” The host then asked whether London could be offered a different Brexit deal from the European Union to the rest of the UK. Marr said: “Is it not a ridiculous idea that London could have a different deal in this than the rest of the country. “London is part of the rest of the country, London can’t be separated by a little border and have its own arrangements with the rest of the EU can it?” The London Mayor rejected the idea that London could receive a different Brexit deal but called for the Government to deliver a Brexit for British jobs, and to protect EU citizens living in the UK. He said: “I am not suggesting a unilateral declaration of independence as much as I like the sound of ‘El Presidente’. “Nor is there going to be a border or walls built around the M25. What I am in favour is of the Government recognising that London needs to do well for the country for it to do well. “That means recognising membership of the single market, being members of the customs union, welcoming talent to this country, giving a cast iron guarantee to those Londoners, they are Londoners by the way who are EU citizens who are scared about their future. “That means a pro-jobs, pro-growth deal with the EU.” Speaking at the Labour Party conference back in September, the London Mayor suggested that the party should leave the door open for another Brexit vote. The Prime Minister has been clear that there will be no second Brexit referendum and that the UK will leave the single market and customs union when it leaves the bloc. The comments come after the sixth round of Brexit talks concluded on Friday with Michel Barnier giving the UK a two-week deadline to offer clarification on the financial settlement to get talks moving by December. He said: “Only sufficient progress - that is to say sincere and real progress - on the three main key issues of these negotiations will enable the triggering of the second phase of our negotiation.” The UK has said that it is within “touching distance” of agreeing on a deal on the key issue of EU citizens.
