So, it begins! The newly minted mayor of London is demanding more autonomy for London, including taxing and public services (read police).
"Sadiq Khan today called for London to "take back control" of its own destiny in the aftermath of the EU referendum.
The Mayor issued a demand for more tax-raising powers "right now" as well as far-reaching command of public services.
His devolution wish-list stopped short of calling for London, the only English region to vote to stay within the EU, as a city-state.
But he stressed the extra powers would be necessary to protect the capital's economy, jobs and prosperity from the uncertainty of Brexit ahead."
Since when did London have more control of its destiny -- as Londonium, when a regional center of the Romans?
Its as If DC and Manhattan Island demanded more autonomy from the rest of the nation.
Bit ironic that the former mayor, Boris Johnson, may be the next PM.
