Boris Johnson has “legitimate questions” to answer over whether his policies represent “a consistent coherent vision for London” according to the London Assembly.
The Assembly, which yesterday met to debate the Mayor’s responses to questions about his proposed economic development, transport and planning strategies, has called on the Mayor to “show greater ambition and leadership for London”.
At yesterday’s meeting a majority of Assembly Members agreed a motion declaring: “That the Assembly notes the answers to the questions asked but expresses concern that, after more than a year in charge, the Mayor has failed to develop a coherent vision for London and calls upon the Mayor to show greater ambition and leadership for London.”
Labour’s John Biggs said: “There is a danger that a Mayor who is a media figure and likes to be admired won’t risk upsetting some people by picking the fights that need a heavyweight champion in the ring for London.”
Mike Tuffrey AM who leads the Assembly’s Liberal Democrat group said the Mayor’s strategies “fail to spell out all the big strategic steps that London needs to take if our City is to remain a world beater.”
