Sadiq Khan has sent a message to the EU that he believes Labour will be forced to oppose the â€œbadâ€ Brexit deal that is emerging from their negotiations with Theresa May.
The mayor of Londonâ€™s comments come ahead of his meeting this week with the EUâ€™s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, in which Khan will emphasise the need for far closer economic ties.
Khan, who joined calls for a second referendum at the weekendâ€™s demonstration, when almost 700,000 people marched through central London, is to meet Barnier on Friday
While Khan predicts that Labour will oppose Mayâ€™s final Brexit deal, Tory whips hope that enough Labour MPs can be persuade to back it in order to outnumber hardline Tory rebels. According to sources in Brussels, Barnier is said to have advised Jeremy Corbyn at a recent meeting that backing the deal would not tie a future governmentâ€™s hands.
