    We don't have to vote for London independence as a state, but can copy the relationship between HongKong and mainland China. We can still call ourselves as British people, but with independent currency, independent government, and of course, independent rights to join the EU again.

    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.
    Should everyone in the UK have a vote on whether or not Scotland should be independent because Scotland is part of UK (and Great Britain) and therefore belongs to us all?

    The 'immigrants' part. Does that mean I and most people living within London are immigrants? As fantastic fan has pointed out. We hold British passports but I'm ethnically not English/British.

    This isn't a bad idea. Other parts of the UK could offer tax advantages to get companies to relocate there instead.

    London would still be recognized as a city and not a sovereign nation, what you're trying to say is like asking the Vatican to join the European Union which is a senseless thing to do.

    No, that's a pretty stupid idea. Who cares if the rest of the UK doesn't like Londoners? That's not a legit reason to separate

    Do y'all want to be independent from the rest of the U.K.? If so,what would our flag look like

    I just think this beautiful city is different from the rest of the U.K. And most of these non Londoners don't seem to like us,I don't know why London is full of fun
    London is a cesspit. Overcrowed, forced acceptance of otrher cultures - cultures I might add that dont mix with each other and stick to themselves; insanely high house prices; and half the city is ghetto-ised now with the influx of poor migrants ttrying to turn where they live back into shanty towns they came from lmao

    This is so ****ing stupid. The goal should be to improve other cities so we can have more londons, not to separate Britain even more. Next thing you know all cities will want independence.

    I don't like London simply because of its size. Coming from a much smaller city, it can come across as intimidating. That said, I respect London as an economic force and powerhouse and for what it brings culturally, economically, etc. to our country as a whole.

    Yes. If you're not white-British you are, by definition/broadly considered, an immigrant

    We hold British passports but I'm ethnically not English/British
    British citizenship/a piece of paper does not alter the fact one is an immigrant/from an immigrant background e.g. if I move to Syria and pickup a passport I don't suddenly become Levantine/stop being classed as an immigrant to the ME

    A separate currency for London only sounds like an administrative nightmare.

    This whole thing about London becoming an independent state is ludicrous Londoners seem to think very highly of themselves compared to the rest of the country. You're not going to get special treatment, snowflakes.

    The amount of Londoners I've seen crying and comparing a Remain vote to bereavement, I struggle to believe they can possibly cope by themselves.

    If you are born in the UK, you're not an immigrant. Having a British passport doesn't mean you're not an immigrant, yeah. But being born and raised in the UK does.
