147 people were murdered in the capital last year, the highest level since 2008. There were three knife crime murders in Fulham last year, in my constituency.

I am determined to refocus the conversation: to how we bring crime levels down; and build the homes we desperately need.
At first glance, his quest for the city’s mayoralty as an independent is merely eccentric. But it is also a logical next step for an ambitious man who is above all a soloist.
Driving landlords out of business would not help tenants. We need more choice and competition by increasing supply.
There is a threat of London-wide pay as you drive road charge, to fix the damage the Mayor’s done to Transport for London’s finances.
Hitting Londoners with a tax for driving when they have no alternative is unfair. More electric car charging points and improved public transport are needed.
This key responsibility isn’t just a question about resources. It’s also about attitude and delivery.
Rent control is not the answer. But we must ensure that deposits owed are promptly repaid and that rogue landlords are exposed.
Our capital is an aspirational city where a message of opportunity from our party should cut through. We can win these voters back. We just need to try.

Bold plans could see 100,000 extra properties. It would also mean an improved quality of housing for existing tenants.

While Londoners want action, the Labour Mayor offers excuses. Shaun Bailey will offer a credible challenge.
Boff was the runner up. The election takes place in May 2020.
All three are great campaigners and proven grassroots workers across London. Winning is a challenge but the prize is definitely up for grabs.

I’ve already voted for Boff as the Conservative candidate. Sometimes I suspect that he knows even more about the capital than Peter Ackroyd.
