London has been dragged out of the EU when more than 60% of Londoners have voted to remain. Use #Londout to show that we don't want to leave the EU and to opt out of leaving the EU. We have a population of 8 million, provide 22% of the UK's GDP, we are a net contributor to the UK in terms of taxes and therefore would be better off out of the UK. With a Scottish referendum most likely it is only in our own interests to protect London and what we stand for.

One pound in every five earned by Londoners is used to fund the rest of the UK. In a typical year, London contributes £10 to £20 billion to the rest of the UK and receives nothing in return. Even though the Houses of Parliament are situated in London, Londoners are only able to elect around 11% of MPs in the commons; Londoners have *no say* in how the vast majority of MPs are elected, yet they are still subject to their laws. London has *no control* over its borders while it remains a member of the UK. Since 2007, there have been more people coming into London from the UK than there have from the rest of the world combined. An independent London would be able to impose an Australian-style points-based immigration system at its border, if that were not such a terrible idea. Even better, it would be eligible to apply to join the EU and the Schengen Area, allowing free movement into London from the EU and helping to facilitate the diversity of which Londoners are so proud. Of course, by far the best argument for London independence is the economic one. As part of a post-exit United Kingdom, London faces economic instability and the cessation of trade deals with the EU. As an independent city-state and the newest EU member, London could reassert its status as one of the financial capitals of the world.

Na, most of London's wealth is used by sucking the rest of the UK dry.
