Re: Sadiq Khan’s Mayoralty

Mr Kahn´s manifesto priorities:

"These are my 10 priorities for London

1. Tackle the housing crisis, building thousands more homes for Londoners each year, setting an ambitious target of 50 per cent of new homes being genuinely affordable, and getting a better deal for renters.
2. Freeze London transport fares for four years and introduce a one-hour bus ‘Hopper’ ticket, paid for by making TfL more efficient and exploring new revenue-raising opportunities. Londoners won’t pay a penny more for their travel in 2020 than they do today.
3. Make London safer, with action to restore neighbourhood policing, tackle gangs and knife crime, a plan to tackle the spread of extremism, and a review of the resourcing of our fire service.
4. Be the most pro-business Mayor yet, working in partnership with industry to deliver on skills, infrastructure, and growth.
5. Restore London’s air quality to legal and safe levels, with action to make travel greener and pedestrianise Oxford Street, while protecting the green belt.
6. Set up ‘Skills for Londoners’ to ensure all Londoners have the opportunity to train in the skills that our economy needs.
7. Tackle low pay, working with employers to make London a Living Wage City.
8. Challenge gender inequality, working to close the gender pay gap and support women to break the glass ceiling while helping to remove the barriers to women’s success.
9. Make cycling and walking safer, with more segregated cycle routes, action on dangerous junctions, and safer lorries.
10. Make London a fairer and more tolerant city, open and accessible to all, and one in which all can live and prosper free from prejudice."

Has he done any of these?

Today he says about knife crime, "I refuse to accept that nothing can be done..." As if anyone has actually asked him to accept it.

He has also said, "I'll plant 2m trees in London in my first term as Mayor - focusing around our schools." So far not one tree has been planted.

Re: Sadiq Khan’s Mayoralty

So he has achieved nearly all of his objectives , bravo i say .

As a concerned Londoner and London ratepayer Ian , what do you think his priorities should be and how , with falling funding could he satisfy your expectations ?

Did Boris live up to your dreams ?

Did you complain of his failures ?

If he has had this money in the bank, why has he waited until now to put it to work? In the meantime, while he sits on £100 million, he bleats about not having the money to police the streets (or plant a single tree).

Re: Sadiq Khan’s Mayoralty

He has suddenly realised he is not on the guest list to meet Trump; now telling anyone who will listen what he would like to say to Mr President - fat chance of that happening.

Allegedly said last December in a previous article on Politico , the US based website , do they have an issue with those who distrust TrumP ?

https://www.politico.eu/article/sadi...iverse-faiths/

But i cannot find any other reference to this on the BBC

What the Mayor has said, Trump can expect "mass peaceful protests" & when the visit was cancelled he stated "Londoners have spoken & Trump has heard it".
So he's a Londoner, he didn't want Trump in London but now he wouldn't mind speaking to him, where would that take place I wonder? London? Sadiq Khan is no more than a Mayor, just like the other Mayors around the UK..........not much standing on the world stage.

Not knocking the BBC or Politico but there's plenty of news outlets without using either of them........all of which regularly "copy & paste" articles to suit/meet their own agendas.

If its not on the BBC website then it hasn't happened..............

Simple question, do you think Sadiq Khan wanted Trump to visit London?
