How far up himself is this bloke?
He wants to devolve London into its own special kingdom with himself as Emperor - maybe a Caliphate with him as Emir. It's so important he gets the gig right now that he can't wait for negotiations.
Apparently if London remains a part of the UK, global businesses that trade in London will be unprotected from the uncertainty ahead. Only a separate London run by him can save the world.
The Government must move fast on devolution for London. We can't wait for the outcome of negotiations pic.twitter.com/wS5TYDmn2N
