London mayor Sadiq Khan has called for another referendum on Britain’s European Union membership, saying the prime minister’s handling of Brexit negotiations had become “mired in confusion and deadlock” and was leading the country down a damaging path.
Britain is due to leave the European Union on March 29. But with Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit plans still not accepted, some MPs, as well as union and business leaders are increasingly arguing for people to have a final say on any deal struck with Brussels.
May has repeatedly ruled out holding a second referendum following the vote two years ago to leave the EU. She says MPs will get to vote on whether to accept any final deal.
