    London is a British city that belongs to the British people. If there was ever a London independence vote, the entire British population would be entitled to vote. Sorry but this is never going to happen.
    I think you'd be surprised how many want to see the back of London. :/

    That is the flag, the cross is the flag.
    There's also the sword. We keep the sword, replace the cross with something else - like leaving the UK. We keep the financial sector, and our close relationship with Europe but replace rest of England and Wales with something else.

    UK was a European country that belonged to the European people. We didn't give European people a vote did we?

    The UK did not 'belong' to European people or the EU. The sense that it did is why some people voted leave in fact. It's irrelevant anyway, London has and always will be the capital city of England and the UK. Only allowing people that reside in London to vote on London's independence would be completely irrational.

    No I'm from Sutton in London and everyone here feels more British than Londoner. Most of us don't really consider ourselves Londoners anyway- we are British.

    Independence followed by EU membership, union with Scotland followed by EU membership,or maybe join Netherlands (they've pretty liberal and open minded government) and get EU membership.
    First preference to independence though: Cyber Kingdom of Great London.

    How does UK belong less to Europe than London belongs to UK? A region belongs to its inhabitants, not to a greater power simply because it has done so in the past.
    FIY: London has not always been capital city of England, that used to be Winchester.

    Because the UK is still a sovereign state even as a member of the EU (that's debatable though).

    Fine then, London was the first officially recognised capital of England (I think). It's also irrelevant, London is still an English/British city.

    Firstly no sovereignty of UK in EU was never debatable, EU was never an external entity - its executives were appointed by, and elected by British people and government.
    Regardless that is irrelevant, all non-national referendums are as they relate to a non-sovereign en titty, in case of independence referendums a non sovereign entity wanting to be sovereign one. We don't let people who don't live within confines of that entity vote in those referendums or they'd be entirely pointless and silly. In Irish or Scottish referendum, should rest of UK have had a vote?
