In a keynote speech, breaking his silence on Britain’s future outside the European Union, Sir Keir pledged to “make Brexit work” and vowed not to try to join the Single Market or a customs union. But this new stance has not gone down well across the party. London Mayor Sadiq Khan voiced his opposition just hours before Sir Keir was expected to speak, saying: “Keir’s job is to be leader of the Labour Party, my job is to be the Mayor of London. That’ll mean on many occasions I agree with the Labour Party, on some occasions I may disagree. Londoners elected me to be their champion, their advocate. I believe that our city and our country’s future is best served being members of the Single Market.” His concerns were echoed by Stella Creasy, the MP who chairs the Labour Movement for Europe, who urged Sir Keir “not to take anything off the table” as they are just understanding “the damage Brexit is doing”. Resistance is likely to be met with David Lammy, who last month backed reworking key elements of the EU relationship, telling LBC: “Of course, if we were in government there are aspects of our relationship with the European Union that do need to be determined.”
