When I call the Greens' Mayoral candidate, Sian Berry, she's on the train to meet Britain's Chief Rabbi. It's a sign of the extremely varied - and hectic - nature of the campaign to become London's next leader. I've managed to grab ten minutes out of her packed schedule to discuss what could turn out to be a crucial moment in the campaign...
We should all be angry that such high levels of deprivation exist alongside such wealth in the capital. The new London Mayor must tackle this crisis as a matter of urgency to ensure that prosperity is equally shared and millions of Londoners are not left behind.
The paper needs an enemy it can fight and not always win against. A vote for Sadiq is a vote for war. And nothing boosts a newspaper like war.
Rock music arguably began life in London. It's great news to see that the London Rock Tour has been recognised this way and as Cherry suggests, let's hope that this is merely the beginning of a new wave of interest in British music heritage.
What does a modern democracy look like? Imagine if rather than sitting on the tube checking Facebook you spent a few minutes each week voting on issue...
London is the world's greatest city, and Londoners deserve an equivalent energy system. How we power our city, keep our homes warm, and keep the lights on, says a lot about how we live our lives. It should be clean, affordable and 21st century. I want my daughters to grow up in a city that is cleaner and greener, in which people aren't dying because the air is so filthy. But I also want London to be at the cutting edge of new green technologies, generating the growth and jobs of the future. That's why, if I'm elected Mayor in May, I'll set up Energy for Londoners to lead on delivering the clean, green energy of the future.
The UK's Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan, has been actively working to educate parents and educators about radicalisation and extremism in the hopes...
Any creative person worth their salt - particularly writers - will tell you that the first part of making new work is to vomit out whatever is floating around your mind and then panhandle for the ten per cent of gold somewhere within it that is worth crafting and re-shaping into magic.
The future of our city lies in our hands.
Then there are images that draw us in, over and above aesthetics. I wondered how the new generation of photographers, those with a timely political agenda, make a place for themselves at the visual pulpit?
There is a very real danger that in getting an easy win against the Tories Labour may have set course for a much greater defeat somewhere down the line, a defeat that may well lead to even greater calls for electoral reform.
Ed Vaizey, the Minister for Culture and the Digital Economy has echoed the Prime Minister's message to young voters last week and urged video gamers to vote to remain in the upcoming referendum on the European Union.
We aren't carrying out tough love anymore. Now, we are carrying out acts that are arrogant, short-minded and unnecessarily painful to people in the UK, who are starting to see our party for what it is. Nasty.
For now though, if you're into buying, renovating, developing or even just daydreaming about property, a handy lesson is this: don't be afraid to take some risks. Sometimes it's worth the gamble.
About two years ago I moved into a property buried deep in a London suburb. For reasons that will become clear the location will remain undisclosed, though It is owned by a housing trust and leased out to an agency; who fill it with people like me in order to keep vandals and sex workers from illegally squatting in the empty building. It's a regular fixture in the London living scene (especially for struggling artists) so I won't bore you with the details.
