I'm seeing momentum build behind my campaign in the past few days and I'm hoping we still have time to get away from the toxic, divisive tone of the personal attacks on Sadiq and talk about the things that matter. London requires it.
We found that the Labour candidate had attracted twice as many negative headlines as his Tory rival. Nearly all the negative headlines relating to Khan came within the first ten pages of the paper where they would be most likely to be seen. Three of them were on the front page. Negative headlines about Goldsmith mostly got buried at the back.
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...
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.
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.
In the midst of this unprecedented housing crisis, London deserves a mayor who will truly appreciate their needs, and not, as the current Tory mayor has done, undermine councils' efforts to build affordable housing by overruling them. I want to see a city that gives the same opportunities to my children as my parents were able to give to me... A city where buying or renting a home for young people on average or below-average incomes is a reality and not a fantasy.
The bookmakers have George Galloway in third place for the position of Mayor of London, which is determined by the Supplementary Vote. Neither Sadiq Khan nor Zac Goldsmith stands any realistic chance of winning outright on first preferences. They, and all other Mayoral candidates who want to win, need to start engaging with Galloway's policy proposals.
London is a great city, but I want it be a great city - and a safe city - for everyone. That's why tackling violence against women and girls will be a defining issue of my mayoralty.
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.
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?
London is a great city and the new Mayor will have a huge responsibility. No more so than to the millions of young people who represent it and all of our futures.
I'm going to cut to the chase; the next few years are going to see London's infrastructure stretched to breaking point, and the next Mayor of London has a colossal job on their hands to prevent the capital's vital services and infrastructure from bursting at the seams.
London is way behind on solar power compared with the rest of the country, and it's frankly embarrassing to be on the train North and whizz past villages covered in solar panels, when in the capital they are as rare as hen's teeth.
Candidates need to stop playing it safe and start playing it exciting, challenging and risky. Build a vision and sell it to Londoners and they'll vote in droves. Keep it dull and safe, and you'll not pull in the vote.
There is a huge amount that a pioneering yet delivery-focussed Mayor could do to improve the supply of affordable housing, spread the living wage, and improve the transition from school to college to work. Sadiq and Zac, over to you.
Ultimately, be it Mr Khan or Mr Smith, we want a London mayor with the brains and guts to tackle the issues affecting Londoners and to ensure its progress as one of the best cities in the world.
