Running London is not a joke. Whoever Camden residents elect on May 1 will take decisions affecting the lives of 7.5million people.
My policies have helped make London successful - we now rival New York - and united. Our community relations are among the best in the world and racist attacks have halved in eight years.

Will there be help for people who dream of a home? With me there will. Half of all new housing in Camden and across London will be affordable. Under Boris Johnson it won't. He'll scrap that policy.
In the fight against crime will residents have a Mayor who will put 1,000 more police on the streets? With me they will - keeping crime falling by six per cent a year, as it has for the past five years. Under Boris Johnson they won't.
