I accept the vote of the British public. I may not like it, but we are where we are. And so my job as the mayor is to make it work. My job is to make sure that the deal we do with the European Union is good for London.
Now I say this, I don't think it'll be as good as the deal we had before, but that's life. The British public voted on the referendum, voted to leave the European Union. By the way, London voted to remain. We are leaving the European Union, I think that accelerates the need for this to be great devolution.
>> Yeah.>> On a whole host of issues. And I think the companies gotta recognize that it's in nobody's interest for London to do less well afterwards than before. And that must be more devolution. The reality's we've got to do a deal with the European Union. By the way, the good news, the EU understand that.
About that, no deal is bad for the EU too. Cuz these businesses and I say this with respect to my friends in Europe, and I've got mayors who I meet regularly, I'm going to meet the mayor next week of Paris, and other mayors. These companies if they leave London, I have the greatest respect, probably are going to go to Paris, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Berlin.
Some will, there will be some fragmentation. They're gonna go to New York, Hong Kong, Singapore.
