We all share the same ambition: for young Londoners to take advantage of the opportunities that this great city has to offer. We want the next Mayor, and everyone else who has a role in shaping policy for helping young people find work, to be brave, imaginative and resourceful in meeting this challenge. Just like the young people who've succeeded through Talent Match London.
Some people have a deep reason to wish for the UK to leave the European Union, whether it is a frustration at the way the European institutions work, or the way they feel Brussels gives the orders and Britain just obeys, or maybe it is because they feel the government has no power to limit EU immigration...
Yes the button has been pressed for the EU Referendum but the race is truly on for the next Leader of the party and I'm sure the Conservative Party membership shall be vigilantly watching their every move.
With the upcoming Mayor of London and London Assembly Elections taking place on 5 May this year it will be interesting to follow the candidates' proposals to tackle London's issues while retaining its crown as one of the leading cities in the world.
I have been knocking around politics for so long that I didn't think it was possible for me to become utterly shocked at the venality, ambition and horror of one man's ego. But this evening I have been proved totally wrong. Boris Johnson has proved beyond all reasonable doubt that he is a copper bottomed, double dealing, hypocritical little shit.
One. Looks. Fat and flamboyant, Boris Johnson and Donald Trump are alike well known for their blond locks which are of the type that used to be descr...
David Cameron's sales pitch for a Remain vote in the EU referendum, saw him repeatedly using the phrase he "didn't love Europe." Now hypocritical Boris Johnson says he "does love Brussels," along with the fine wines and expensive holidays, but has announced he will campaign for Britain to leave the EU.
It is clear that Boris Johnson has caused a storm in ignoring the PM and advocating Brexit; however, regardless of motivation, I am in support of the concept of taking a leap of faith and giving Britain the chance to negotiate its own independence and economic growth, instead of bowing down to pass on decisions to another party.
London's gender pay gap is 23% - higher that the already unacceptable national average of 15%. While many firms understand the importance of transparency and parent-friendly policies, too many are too slow to implement them.
I understand that the 'in' campaign feels the need to scaremonger on these issues; after all, it is their primary tactic on the economy. Is there any substance to their claims? I don't see it.
Boris Johnson, however, has decided to turn his back on Team Dave. If Cameron loses, a challenge to his leadership would be inevitable. For the Mayor of London, it seems that he has spotted a convenient gamble with Europe that could work to his political advantage.
The story revealed that Mr Khan's brother-in-law for more than 20 years took part in and spoke at events organised by vile group Al-Muhajiroun. Cue accusations of racism, Islamophobia and every other type of phobia quicker than the time it takes to read the full article. And boy did they fly in - on Twitter, mostly, but also from friends of people close to me. These accusations, from people who claim to believe in freedom of expression, are absurd. The "real" story was, in fact, an exercise in what the media should be doing - scrutinising politicians' own records.
On 5 May 2016 people from across London have the chance to vote for the Mayor of London. The people you vote for in these elections are responsible for many aspects of your everyday life - from the underground, local bus services and policing, to green spaces, air quality and Trafalgar Square.
Despite their claims to be leading the global fight against tax avoidance, British Conservatives have been vociferous in their condemnation of EU atte...
The only real options are either to leave London entirely, or give up on having a family. If the next Mayor doesn't take drastic action on the cost of housing, they will drive away workers and their children, leaving a hamstrung economy and eroding communities.
Today the Capital's streets are in crisis - the number of under-25s sleeping rough in one of the richest cities in the world has more than doubled since the last mayoral election. Whoever succeeds Boris Johnson in May won't just have the platform to express concern and talk about change, they'll have the power, the public support, and a multi-million pound budget to work with London's boroughs to make homelessness and rough sleeping a thing of the past. But how should they do it and where should they start?
