Why do you blame everything on the Government?
What is the job of the mayor then if it is not to control what happens in the city?
Because the Government wields enormous power. Without them, nothing can be done. Imagine London contributes more than 10% of the total national government revenue, but they cannot afford police officers or to employ sufficient nurses.
The mayor is a glorified custodian. They cannot make things happen without the Government giving the go-ahead. The Government controls the money. Those with the money have the power.

Corbyn is a good enough leader to recognise he needs the majority of the country on his side to oust the Torys. Even the Guardian won't show him mercy.
Corbyn's personal convictions are irrelevent when it comes to his actions on Brexit and a second vote. The balance of forces in the electorate, inside his own party and the PLP are dictating what he does.
I'm sure if Corbyn and Mcdonnel felt the only way to get rid of the tories was to supprt remining in the EU they would do that. They are euroskeptics for sure but it is not thier sole guiding issue in politics, unlike those brexit lot in the Tory party.

Corbyn always has and will be a Leaver. The EU threatens his socialist agenda, so of course he isn’t a remainer.
