London Mayor Sadiq Khan today said that he “lost the argument” on Brexit, but pointed out that he accepts the result and is looking to stand up for London’s interests.
In remarks made to the London Assembly, Khan said he wanted to make sure London gets the “right deal” from the government.
“The referendum happened. I lost the argument,” he said.
“Now I want to make sure London’s got the right deal from government.”

The remarks came during a special question time discussing Khan’s new proposed budget.
During the morning, it was also revealed members of the Conservative group in the Assembly did not support the final budget of Khan’s predecessor Boris Johnson, who left office last year.
