Many Leave voters are the very same minimum wage workers in insecure jobs, on zero-our contracts, reliant on in-work benefits and struggling to pay rents that Labour and the Greens claim to speak up for.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan has demanded to be included in Britain’s exit negotiations from the European Union following Thursday’s historic decision to quit the trading bloc after 43 years.
Delays in declaring Sadiq Khan’s victory in last month’s mayoral election were caused by an incorrect setting on the database servers used to count Londoners’ votes.
Adverts which are designed to undermine Londoners’ confidence in their body are to be banned by Transport for London, in keeping with mayor Sadiq Khan’s manifesto pledge.
Currently passengers must check the relevant Transport for London Twitter account and manually check for service updates, but a pilot launched today by TfL and Twitter will allow anyone following the London Overground, TfL Rail, Central line and District line accounts to opt-in for automatic alerts.
Under both Ken and Boris the board – with a few honourable exceptions – has long been too much of a rubber stamp, committed to little more than ensuring the mayor gets his way, so schemes and policies have tended to get nodded through with little objective scrutiny.
During the campaign to succeed Boris Johnson as mayor, Mr Khan promised that Londoners would pay the same fare in 2020, when he’ll be up for re-election, as they did at the start of his mayoralty.
Board members, who earn between £18,000 and £24,000 per year, are responsible for appointing the TfL Commissioner and scrutinising and approving managers’ decisions and spending plans.
