People's Questions Time

Don't forget that this week's People's Question Time event is your last chance to quiz Ken in person this year (unless that is you want to burst into his office weilding a sharp object with abusive slogans painted on your naked body, but that's only a last resort thing).

People's Question Time is a twice-yearly event at which the public get the chance "to voice concerns and ask the Mayor and London Assembly Members what they are doing for the capital and its people".

At each PQT the Assembly always allocate four 'subjects' on which it will take questions, and it's always interesting to see what they come up with as it gives a good indication of what Ken et al really have on their minds (or at least what they think they should be perceived to have on their minds).

This time round the four main areas under discussion will be policing, safety and gun crime, transport (which is always on the bill), the environment and the Olympics.

Of course, the issue on policing and gun crime have just gained new prominence in everyone's minds due to the events in Bradford over the weekend and it will be interesting to see how Ken reacts to Lord Steven's comments as well as Charles Clarke's recent decision not to arm all police officers.

Bear in mind as well that this PQT is taking place at Hendon Police College.

People's Question Time is on Wednesday 23rd from 7-9pm. Tickets are free but have to be booked in advance on 020 7983 4762. More details here. There will also be a webcast of the event.
