Thursday saw a topical debate on policing in London in Parliament. I took the opportunity to raise with the Minister about the need to station Safer Neighbourhood teams in their own ward – i.e. Highgate!
Of wider note was the brief appearance of the Conservative candidate for Mayor of London – Boris Johnson. Mr Johnson has famously only mentioned London once in his entire lifetime at Parliament prior to his current and somewhat sudden interest in being our Mayor.
So – a debate on what the very heart of Londoners are concerned about – you would have thought he would be there paying rapt attention. None of it. After his ‘contribution’ he left!
