The fight to cut air pollution in London is literally a life and death matter. Some 9,500 Londoners die from air pollution every year - with the poorest parts of the capital worst hit by pollution. London has the highest levels of air pollution of any European capital. Air pollution affects all Londoners - from being in the dirtiest busiest thoroughfares like the Euston Road to the schools and workplaces we travel to daily. But it is London's poorest and most vulnerable that are affected most and that is simply unjust.
The Labour Party is moving into meltdown before a single ballot has been cast. The polarisation within the party - pro and anti-Corbyn - is going to be problematic in the future. It is not just about "what if Corbyn wins?", but what if he only just loses.
So the deadline has now passed for people to register as Labour supporters to have a vote in the Labour Leadership election. Amid stories of malign infiltration by some Tories and others, Labour is right to check the genuineness of applications before ballot papers are issued.
I dislike nearly everything Jeremy Corbyn stands for, but I find him respectable, he has principles and stands by them.
Jeremy Corbyn has created a debate that will alter the course of Labour Party history, whatever the outcome. I give him credit for that and to those who nominated him. He has woken up the real dinosaurs in the parliamentary party with a roar, but that alone is not enough.
Forgive the diatribe and the finger pointing but the election result was a shock yet not one big enough that appears to have shaken sense into people. People are now even starting to question whether electability matters? I can only assume these people live very comfortable lives.
On Thursday evening comedian Robert Webb laid out his objections to Jeremy Corbyn on twitter, ad it really unsettled me. Not because it was an expleti...
But I think there is a very different dynamic at play. The 90s generation are asking Labour supporters to vote for anyone but Corbyn because they see the only electable Labour party as being a cigarette-paper away from the Conservative party. Those who support Labour are tired of being told that their support is valuable and yet their voice is never heard.
I'm sorry if people think that I'm not supporting Corbyn because I am a Tory. I've worked til my fingers bled helping people who needed it. I'm sorry if I don't see the same radical change in Jeremy Corbyn others do. If Jeremy Corbyn wins I will support him completely. I will work with him. I'll do whatever I can to help Labour win in Yardley, in Somerset, in Portsmouth and Glasgow. Because I might not have supported his candidacy but, as I have said, I'm an optimistic pragmatist.
It is crucial that over the coming month at least one of the mainstream candidates rises to that challenge. As things stand, I only know the candidate I can't support and that is not enough.
How dare you declare that if you lose you will not support the new leader? We had one sore loser, David, that instead of staying on and helping his brother and his party win the election, he resigned and left. He showed what was important to him and it was not the Labour party and the people of this country. We do not need any more people like that.
With the deadline for Labour leadership voters to register having now passed and ballots almost ready to be issued, the only question left is who the winner will be, and whether this will be former outsider Jeremy Corbyn. If he does win it will be bad not just for Labour, but for democracy as a whole.
Coming together to see how we can effectively lead a political struggle against further cuts to our communities couldn't be more important - please support Diane and help her stop the Conservatives' social cleansing of our city.
So often we choose to ignore the basic "rule of thumb" that, when two peas come out of the same pod, it's a rare instance when those two peas don't share 80% of the others' characteristics.
Giving women an equal chance isn't just a women's issue - it's a concern for all of us. That's what One London is all about - a city where women and men are equal, nothing more, nothing less. And that's why I'm backing Tessa Jowell to be Labour's candidate for Mayor.
What a travesty the Labour Party has become. Someone who has captured people's imaginations like nothing seen since the arrival of Tony Blair; a figure capable of mobilising and engaging tens of thousands of new supporters to what, only a few months ago, seemed a party in terminal decline - Corbyn should be welcomed like the prodigal son.
