  1. Then maybe there should be a Lexit of London from the UK.

  2. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.london.gov.uk/press-releases/mayoral/londoners-could-retain-eu-citizenship) reduced by 76%. (I’m a bot)

    > The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, will today urge the Government to allow Londoners and British nationals who are 'heartbroken' by Brexit to retain citizenship of the European Union.

    > Heading to Brussels today, Sadiq will call on senior European Union politicians to work with the UK Government so that a form of 'Associate Citizenship' is put at the heart of negotiations about the UK's future relationship with the EU. The Mayor is deeply concerned that millions of Londoners and other British nationals, who never wanted Brexit, have lost the rights they enjoyed as EU citizens.

    > "There would be support from millions of Londoners and British nationals who are devastated they are losing their rights as EU Citizens. As the UK and EU start their next phase of negotiations, I want this issue of associate citizenship to be at the heart of talks about our future relationship.”

  3. Typical labour behaviour, incredibly naive, they’ll remain unelectable for a generation

  4. Populist movement towards his voters, no one sane believes it possible.

    Being free from people who elected this guy is silver lining of Brexit.
