Beginning his musical career at the tender age of 13, East London rapper Bundi's distinctive flow has seen him take the stage at Wembley Arena, bag features on well renowned music channels such as BET, Channel AKA and Flava as well as gain support from prominent DJ's such as DJ Target and DJ MistaJam.
Crossrail was finally delivered mainly by Londoners for Londoners, with a democratically accountable Mayor at the helm and over 60% of its £14.8bn funding coming directly from Londoners and London's businesses.

So what's the latest in the London foodie scene of single-item restaurants? BALLS. Yes, you heard me right. But not just any balls... we're talking super-cheffy gourmet balls made from fine ingredients, and served with delicious accompaniments. Welcome to buzzing Soho restaurant: Balls & Company.

When I recently interviewed Reggae Reggae sauce entrepreneur Levi Roots on Mi-Soul Radio he reflected on what life was like being a Rastafarian, living in Brixton which inspired him to release his latest album 'Rise Above'.
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.

Five years ago, if you had suggested I move to London, I would have been horrified. I would have said it was riddled with pollution, crime, arrogance and tubes - and flat out refused to go. But recently I have seen that London has a lot to offer, so much so in fact, I think it's time we made a couple more.
If I'm Mayor of London, I want to bring this same kind of passion for people's fundamental rights to City Hall. I can't speak for the other candidates but for me, it's a no brainer - it's part of who I am. I want to be the leader of this great city who gets why it's important we have the right to protest and to free speech, we have the right to a fair trial, and we have the right to privacy.
I was proud to represent the Greens at the recent rally for voting reform at Parliament, organised by Unlock Democracy and Owen Winter, the Member of ...

London rocks any single day of the year, but in summer it gets even better...! The city has an amazing urban summer with lots of warm sunny days and tones of cool stuff to do, visit, explore, eat, listen to and a very very very long etcetera...
