AN EYE ON EU
SADIQ Khan is facing a huge backlash after the London Eye was lit up like an EU flag during the New Year’s fireworks display.
The Mayor of London has been accused of “politicising” the event, with Brexiteers furious over the apparent stunt.
He even mentioned the EU during the sold-out celebration, tweeting: “Our one million EU citizens are Londoners, they make a huge contribution, and no matter the outcome of Brexit – they will always be welcome.”
Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said: “It’s very low to politicise what is an international public event.”
