While Hopkins, Farage and Robinson are desperate for us not to be united, the reality is quite the opposite. All right-minded people are united in their condemnation for the hideous atrocities that took place on Wednesday afternoon. Similarly too, all right-minded people are united in stating that we won't allow extremists of any persuasion to destroy who we are and what we stand for.
As Sadiq Khan said this week," Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism. We stand together in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life. We always have, and we always will." Until the day I die, I will always be proud to have been mayor of this wonderful city and its people.
Sadiq Khan has made a positive contribution to fighting terror in London. Zac Goldsmith's vile mayoral campaign, which looked to associate Khan with Islamic extremists, didn't fool anyone.

One of the stranger consequences of early 21st-century terrorism and the rise of militant Islam is that it has induced a nostalgia for an earlier kind...
If you see or hear any Islamophobic commentary in the wake of what happened in Westminster, please say something. Don't be that person who records a stranger spewing their vitriol on your phone and upload it to Twitter later to then voice your outrage. This does nothing.

As I sit, or more likely stand perpendicular and cramped, on my commute to and from work I tend to scan through the pages of the Metro or the Evening Standard nonchalantly. When I arrive at my destination, I have two primary options; put the paper in the bin, or leave it on my seat.
The risk of crime is always a factor for any person considering renting or buying a home; indeed, the risk of residential burglary is among the most pressing concerns for any potential tenant or homeowner. This is not just because burglaries can have a huge financial impact, but because they also cause a great deal of emotional distress.
It's something he does with me at home as well. So what I do is leave him to cry it out. The amount of dirty looks I received on the bus was unbelievable. I actually had a man approach me and tell me that my child is crying and that I should pick him up.
Ever strolled through Hampstead Village admiring its sprawling mansions and thinking, wow, imagine living there? Everything about our society tells us that the measure of success is wealth, and wealth can be measured in square feet. That's where the growing revolution towards miniature houses comes in.
A new report has highlighted the threat to London's creative communities from the spread of urban regeneration.
There's no doubt that craft and the Crafts Council are in a state of flux. We've witnessed an unprecedented rise in the popularity of making, encapsul...
So I ask you, how is riding a bike any different from using the internet? We need to nurture our children, explain right from wrong, make them aware of the dangers lurking around every corner and to always think
Latest figures show there are an estimated 5,360 armed forces veterans in London suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The amount of ...
About three years ago, I went to my first bottomless brunch in London. I still remember how glorious it was, sitting down with friends at the South Place Hotel and discovering a perfectly legitimate excuse for day drinking.
