General News

Boris Johnson

  • The Mayor's speech to the Centre for Policy Studies sparked so much comment it needs its own section.
  • Boris used the third Margaret Thatcher lecture to either position himself as the ex-PM's heir or embark on a spot of epic trolling, depending on your point of view.
  • Nick Clegg called Johnson's comments on inequality and IQs "unpleasant, careless elitism".
  • And if anyone has any idea what the 'cornflakes' bit was about, let us know in the comments.

Housing

  • Our own Jonn points out how very few telly Londoners could afford to buy their houses in real life. In the New Statesman. Pff.
  • Assembly Member Darren Johnson calls for more retirement housing for London's ageing population.
  • Faced with long waiting lists, one group of tenants are building their own homes.
  • First residents moving into the Olympic village.

Transport
