 London Mayoral Election title

Friday, 24 June 2016

#EuRef the next step

David Cameron says he's stepping down as Prime Minister after the UK voted to leave the EU.

He says he believes the country needs "fresh leadership" and expects a new PM to be in place by the Tory party conference in October.

Carshalton’s MP says he’s disappointed in the way Sutton voted.

Only five boroughs voted to leave the EU, with Sutton being one of them.

Speaking to Jackie's Leigh Ann Gerrans, Remain campaigner Tom Brake says he will need to find a way to push forward with the rest of London.

Meanwhile, former Tooting MP and Mayor or London Sadiq Khan, has given his reaction.

Epsom and Ewell MP, and Brexit campaigner Chris Grayling wanted David Cameron to stay on as Prime Minister despite the result.

The Leader of the Commons says he's disappointed he's decided to go.

Kingston's MP, James Berry, is also sad the PM is standing down.

Kingston Council Leader Kevin Davis has issued this statement;

"The result has been a shock, but we should ditch the apocalyptic language and look forward to our new role in EU. 'Out' must not be the end."

The leader of Hammersmith and Fulham council has thanked the EU citizens that have made it their home.

70% of the borough’s residents cast a remain vote yesterday.

“The result is a shock to many and so on this particular day, this administration wants to send a very clear and very warm message of welcome to the thousands of EU citizens that have made our borough their home.

We are deeply grateful for the businesses they’ve started, the hard work they do, and for how our culture has been enriched because they have chosen to live with us in our beautiful corner of West London. We will do everything we can to ensure all of the borough’s EU residents feel as welcome today, and each day thereafter, as they did yesterday.

What happens next for our country and its relationships with other countries is unclear. The turmoil on the financial markets reflects some of that. But we in H&F will continue to work hard to support local businesses and do everything in our power to fight for the prosperity and well-being of all who live here.”
