London’s new mayor has made two major new appointments as the capital faces a suddenly uncertain future
This was not in the script. It isn’t yet two months since Labour’s Sadiq Khan emphatically won a hard fight to become London mayor against Eurosceptic Tory Zac Goldsmith and his dubious campaign tactics, but how long ago that triumph seems. Khan has begun working towards his goals of easing the capital’s high living costs and widening opportunities for sharing in its successes, but Brexit has been rather more than just a rude interruption of his schedule.
London, emphatically pro-remain, must now limit the damage threatened by the victory of leave, and not just for the sake of the capital. The new City Hall administration, still settling in, has spent much of the past week absorbing grave assessments of the future from some of the most powerful business leaders in the land. Uncertainty is everywhere. In workplaces and on the streets there is a new mood of unease.
