After a history making vote resulting in the UK pulling away from the EU, the first Muslim mayor of London made sure to send out a global message that differs from the one sent by the people of Britain.
As explained by Dennis Michael Lynch in his opinion article earlier today, the people of the UK wanted to “Leave” the EU because of immigration. Britain in no longer the place it once was due to mass immigration, much of it from Muslim nations.
Mayor Sadiq Kha wanted to stay within the EU, and so here is what he had to say via a post on Facebook:
“I want to send a clear message to every European resident living in London – you are very welcome here. As a city, we are grateful for the enormous contribution you make, and that will not change as a result of this referendum.
There are nearly one million European citizens living in London today, and they bring huge benefits to our city – working hard, paying taxes, working in our public services and contributing to our civic and cultural life.
We all have a responsibility to now seek to heal the divisions that have emerged throughout this campaign – and to focus on what unites us, rather than that which divides us.”
According to the BBC, a petition calling for Sadiq Khan to declare London an independent state after the UK voted to quit the EU has been signed by thousands of people. Nearly 60% of people in the capital backed the Remain campaign, in stark contrast to most of the country.
