Boris Johnson’s complete absence of ambition could lock us into this worsening housing crisis for years. Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime Stephen Greenhalgh hosted the meeting, accompanied by Assistant Commissioner Simon Byrne to consult on the new policing model for London and its implications on Harrow. Just four months after analysis from London Assembly Member Navin Shah revealed that apprenticeship numbers in Brent and Harrow had fallen for two years running. The truth is a staggering £134m of building works and ticket machines won’t make up for the loss of 897 station staff. This was the Mayor’s final opportunity to put in place a legacy which would leave London able to build its way out of this housing crisis. The problem is also that tall residential buildings largely provide luxury and unaffordable accommodation, totally unsuitable to meet London’s housing needs. Judges were said to have treated desperate victims like criminals, handing out meagre compensation awards. Soon after the LRS was launched in May 2014 the Mayor reported that there were 13,512 landlords already signed up to the various accreditation schemes. Since Boris Johnson was elected in 2008 fares have risen to a staggering level: New figures from the House of Commons library shows the increase means an office manager in central London earning £25,600 living in zone 1 or 2 would have to work for three weeks and three days before the cost of their travel was covered. It is disgraceful that the Health Secretary thinks it is acceptable to close a ‘good’ A&E unit at Central Middlesex Hospital, while the neighbouring Northwictk Park Hospital that will pick up the pressure was judged as ‘requires improvement’, will be beyond belief for the thousands of my Brent residents who today see their local A&E axed. We are seeing yet more bully boy tactics from Boris Johnson over his planned fire cuts. The celebrations were a true symbol of what it meant to be British, reaching out to our neighbours and standing together (even if it is in the rain). Boris Johnson has a vast mountain to climb if he is going to come anywhere near delivering the quarter of a million apprenticeships he promised Londoners by 2016, particularly as in some boroughs, like Brent and Harrow apprenticeship numbers are actually falling. This temp to perm role will be a great transition for any contractors moving to a perm job in time for IR35! Now it is our turn to stand up for them and the people they protect every day.”. But Shah has spoken up for Indians in Bhopal as well. I visited the Willesden Temple, where the celebrations were well-attended and enjoyed thoroughly by all. But the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games and the IOC have repeatedly backed Dow's stance. This is the latest twist in a rumbling dispute between the fire union and brigade management, who started talks on Tuesday to try to resolve the problems, about changes to shift patterns. I am dismayed by the way the mayor has disenfranchised the residents and stakeholders in London on the matter of NHS changes and A&E closures in London. But I’m concerned that we are witnessing a trend of increased crime and burglary rates as confirmed by the Commissioner and the decreasing police numbers including loss of half of sergeants would hamper our Safer Neighbourhood Teams from keeping our localities safe and put at risk our success in combating crime. This leaves drivers vulnerable to being fined, as has happened in the past. . I led a group of London Labour MPs and Assembly Member colleagues to hand-deliver a letter to Mayor Boris Johnson at City Hall on 1 November. I think that borough commanders will want to have some flexibility in deciding how their resources are to be distributed across their wards. ”It is very curious that the facts are clear and publicly available but repeated attempts by activists and some politicians are misguided, misinformed and misdirected,” he said. International Women’s Day has attracted global attention for women in developed and developing countries. “The real issue here is the safety of passengers using London Underground and the accessibility of the service for passengers, which the closure of ticket offices severely jeopardises.

Ashutosh Shukla, a Bhopal journalist, said: “The history of Union Carbide shows a democratic country like India can be bought by multinational companies who can get away with a crime of this magnitude.”. The residents could not see any logic in dismantling the current model which was described as successful in tackling anti social behaviour, reducing fear of crime and better relations almost on ‘first name basis with local communities. He is peddling his tired old line that his plan won’t cut frontline police services. We know there are better ways of getting housing than at the expense of jobs and growth. We need real change in the private rented sector. Mr Shah is calling for Mr Johnson to reconsider the plans citing that the borough streets could be at risk. However, such a move must be done in a plan-led way to avoid destroying the integrity of retail areas. The loss of officers is completely unacceptable.

Despite promising to hit is target by May 2016, just 627 additional landlords have been accredited since Boris Johnson launched the scheme in late May last year. The coalition government’s white paper ‘Equity and excellence - Liberating the NHS’.

We need creative and ambitious solutions if we are to successfully tackle the capital’s housing crisis. This is a figure that Mr Shah believes could rise as a result of the Government’s changes. Powerful measures are required to stop the long term and lasting damage from unbridled, ill-considered and ill-conceived development of tall buildings. As a result of the Mayor’s announcement fares from next year will rise as follows: -          Bus and Tram Pay as You Go – up 67% to £1.50 – a £0.60 rise since 2008, -          PAYG TfL Rail Services Zone 1 – up 60% to £2.40 – a £0.90 rise since 2008, -          Zone 1-2 monthly travel card – up 34% to £124.50 – a £31.50 rise since 2008, -          Zone 1-3 monthly travel card – up 34% to £146 – a £36.90 rise since 2008, -          Zone 1-4 annual travel card – up 34% to £178.60 – a £45.70 rise since 2008, -          Zone 1-6 monthly travel card – up 33% to £227 – a £55.70 rise since 2008.

Residents can share their good and bad experiences by filling in a short survey on bus services in London and attending the public meeting on 6 June at City Hall. Last year, long before the coalition government started forcing through its draconian measures, the Mayor proposed a reduction of police numbers by 455 over the next three years and 5% cuts in police budgets Londonwide. Each SNT currently has three PCSOs, two PCs and one sergeant. Whilst there are currently no proposals to axe entire night bus routes, reductions are planned for 17 routes across London.

Mr Shah said: “I understand that previously this has been dismissed because route 182 already serves the Hospital. In this day and age to not provide toilets and make them use the bushes is inhumane. The official site of the Mayor of London and the London Assembly. Londoners are paying more and getting less but the Mayor still wants to raise fares above inflation every year for the next twenty years. It is absurd to expect residents from the Southern parts of Brent like Harlesden to use Northwick Park Hospital given the, very poor public transport links. On my table there was a considerable interest from the youth about the London Olympics and how it will benefit Harrow. Mayor of London Boris Johnson has come under pressure on his record in rolling out the London Living Wage (LLW). In Harrow the number fell 47% from 138 in May 2012 to only 73 in December 2015. A report in 2008 demonstrated  that there is a positive association between SNTs and falling crime and increase in confidence in local police. In the same period the average annual operating surplus at TfL has been £301 million. The Mayor admitted getting the numbers back up will not be easy, adding "even though it is important for us as a city to keep the police, to keep the public focussed on that high number - because if it goes down then ultimately there will be a difficulty in getting enough police out there. That’s what Londoners want, and need. I have an ancestral home in Sarkhej and a residence near Adalaj,” Shah said. Willesden Green Police station will close and Harlesden Police Station’s front counter will be downgraded to contact points with hugely reduced hours. It is insulting for the Mr Lansley to rubbish genuine concerns as misunderstanding, or a “storm in a teacup”.

These closures are nothing but asset stripping and an act of vandalism which will hurt locally and deprive communities even further.”.

Results should be available within two weeks. 5,102 families in Brent and 687 of families in Harrow on housing waiting lists with nowhere to turn” as councils’ social housing stock is sold off.

The vast majority of people over 25 in apprenticeships already worked for their employer before starting an ‘apprenticeship’ under the new system. Campaign spokesman, Gerry Downing said: “The toilets were closed for 30 of the 39 days between November 28 and January 13.

The Mayor described the under-spends in TfL's budgets as "completely irrelevant" and said that cutting fares would be a "historic mistake". For eight years Boris Johnson has failed to deliver the affordable homes we need, now he looks set to tie the hands of a future Mayor by setting a scandalously low target for affordable housing on major development sites. I welcome the Mayor’s announcement that he will work towards ensuring there is a gender balance on the LLDC, and support his actions to recruit and promote more women. London has the biggest gap between the richest and poorest residents in the country, and 27% of Londoners live in poverty after housing costs are taken into account. With many families on housing waiting lists, people in Brent and Harrow want to know whether or not Boris Johnson will stand up and fight attempts to decimate our social housing stock. “If a minority of bus drivers continue to vandalise these toilets we may forced to close these facilities permanently. Dow, owner of Union Carbide since 2001, and Lord Coe like to talk about “sustainability” when it comes to the Olympic Games but the word has an ironic feel to many in Bhopal.

The London Olympics 2012 boycott call over the sponsorship by Dow Chemicals given by the organisations working for survivors of the 1984 Union Carbide gas leak in Bhopal has started gaining momentum.

This represents the biggest shake-up to the London Fire Brigade since it was created 146 years ago. SNTs build local knowledge and get to know their patch, the proposals today look very much like a return to the old model of sector policing which does not have this strong local link. As the ‘Small Business Saturday’ was promoted and celebrated in Brent and the rest  of the Country, demonstrators gathered outside the Alperton Station to save the much loved local shops who are threatened with permanent closure by Transport for London (TfL). (Metropolitan Police). The NHS plans to demote four hospitals in North West London. The Mayor's threat to sue was reported late yesterday by the Evening Standard http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/boris-takes-legal-action-against-fire-authority-over-defiance-on-station-cuts-8491817.html. I believe these cuts do not reflect the necessity to maintain a police presence in Brent, especially when it will lead to the police having to choose which crimes they tackle with reduced resources. Speaking at City Hall today, Labour's London Assembly Member for Brent and Harrow Navin Shah said: "Since Boris was elected, fares are up as much as 56 per cent.
