Sadiq Khan lambasted for latest Brexit intervention amid London controversies

Sadiq Khan has been asked to “stick to his day job” following another Brexit intervention. 

The Mayor of London is urging the government to relax post-Brexit visa restrictions, which he claims are discouraging young Europeans from visiting the capital for job, study, and tourism.

Mr Khan, an outspoken Remainer, is advocating for a new youth group travel plan to make the UK more welcoming to schoolchildren from all over the world.

Conservatives have criticised London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s latest Brexit involvement.

Mr Khan’s controversial extension of London’s ultra low emission zone (ULEZ) will have a “devastating impact” on tourists to the capital, according to Conservative MP Louie French.

“It is a bit rich that Sadiq Khan criticises others when his own policies, such as ULEZ expansion and scrapping rail travelcards and popular bus routes, will have a devastating impact on small businesses and visitors to the capital,” said the Tory MP for Old Bexley and Sidcup.

“The Labour Mayor of London has miserably failed in his core missions of Keeping London Moving and Keeping Londoners Safe.”

Mr Khan, according to City Hall Conservatives economy spokesperson Neil Garratt, “begins talking about Brexit” when he is having a “bad news day.”

The London Assembly member for Croydon and Sutton cited a YouGov poll in which half of Londoners believe Mr Khan is performing poorly.
