Labour Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is to share a platform with Prime Minister David Cameron at a Remain rally later on.

They will collectively release a Britain Stronger In Europe fight bus, in spite of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn choosing not to project with Mr Cameron.

It follows Mr Cameron had actually criticised Mr Khan’s “bad judgement” throughout the London mayoral election.

Mr Khan safeguarded his choice to project publically with the Tory PM and stated it remained in London’s interest.

“Is it in London’s interest for me to hold grudges? Is it in London’s interests for the mayor of London to be at long-term war with the Conservative prime minister?” Mr Khan informed ITV’s Peston On Sunday.

“We’re never ever going to be friends, however exactly what is necessary is that the mayor of London says the case for London and for Londoners to continue to be in the European Union.

“This dispute is much more vital than David Cameron or me.

“It’s about our city’s future and nation’s future.”

During London’s mayoral election race, Mr Cameron consistently assaulted Mr Khan for having a history of sharing platforms with extremists, which Mr Khan declined.

At Prime Minister’s Question Time in the Commons some Labour MPs knocked Mr Cameron as a “racist” when he assaulted Mr Khan’s judgment.
