Inga Beale - Lloyds Bank

It makes it safer to be out and drive overall inclusiveness, beyond sexuality. That's the impact, and we've got to think about the talent coming through and how the new generation want a different type of workplace. They're not necessarily inclusive themselves about the 'Ts' and the 'Bs,' it's a difficult topic but at least the conversations are happening now and I think that's a start.feedback

Inga Beale - Lloyds Bank

I think it shows visibly in an individual when they can be much more confident in themselves, and that has a positive impact on others because they tend to engage more in all types of conversations and not try to hide or say the wrong things or fall into a trap about mentioning something about their personal life.feedback

Inga Beale - Lloyds Bank

Any person that comes out as a role model in a senior position can only do good things because it encourages other people to start talking…. Certainly in the financial services industry, people are taking it seriously and we've got a lot of momentum in giving visibility in the LGBT+ community. We've got a gathering of very senior insurance, out LGBT+ leaders now–we've formed an informal group to discuss the topics.feedback

Michael R. Bloomberg

One of the things that is hurting us both in the United States and in the UK is that we have employees, not a lot but some, who are starting to say: 'I don't want to work here – can we transfer to someplace else? This country doesn't like immigrants'. It is really hard to understand why a country that was doing so well wanted to ruin it. It was not a smart thing to do and getting out of it is going to be very difficult and is going to be very painful. It will hurt industries. People are already taking space in other cities over there [Europe], us included.feedback

Adam Gallop

This is any family's worst nightmare - it is beyond comprehension for the family to hear that one daughter has brutally murdered another. It has been a horrendous ordeal for them and we are pleased that we have received the guilty plea today.feedback

Andy Green

We came here to say Bloodhound is Go! And that's exactly what we managed to demonstrate today. The performance, the handling, the stability of it – I can't fault the car at all, it just worked brilliantly.feedback

Emily Woof

He put his hand on my thigh. I remember being scared that I had to go back to his house, and managed to tell him that I wanted to go home. He dropped me somewhere in London that was nowhere near where I needed to be.feedback

Carsten Kengeter

This decision was not easy for me since I feel very closely connected to Deutsche Börse and I still have many plans for the company. In the light of the public accusations and allegations, I am taking this step to protect Deutsche Börse in particular. I will thoroughly cooperate with the authorities until the end of the investigation. With this decision, I am paving the way for a new beginning for Deutsche Börse. Until the end of the year, I will contribute to an orderly transition. I would like to thank the Supervisory Board and the employees for the trust they have expressed in me.feedback

Ronald Koeman

I had Olivier Giroud in the building. He would have fitted perfectly but, at the very last moment, he decided that he'd rather live in London and stay at Arsenal. That was really hard to swallow ... Lukaku was so important for us, not just because of his goals. If things were not going well in a game, if we could not play the way we were used to, there was always the option to use the long ball towards him.feedback

Paul Rothe

Many people don't know we're here, while others will travel from 20 miles outside of London just to buy a particular type of jam.feedback

Linda Bellos

In the 30 years since I launched it there have been some excellent projects – and also some rubbish. Here’s how I’d remedy that. I was the politician responsible for introducing Black History Month to Britain exactly 30 years ago. The idea had originated within the Greater London Council, and I had inherited it after the organisation’s abolition in 1986. At the time I was leader of Lambeth council.feedback

Duncan Wilson

The heritage at-risk register is an annual health check of the country's most special and vulnerable historic places. We can celebrate the fact that 367 historic sites have been saved this year across England by organisations and communities working with Historic England and want to thank all those who have cared for at-risk places, bringing them back into life and into use. From the volunteer bracken-bashers at prehistoric sites to the apprentices learning and applying traditional craft skills to medieval buildings, this is a huge, collective labour of love and it is well worth it.feedback

Duncan Wilson

But across England, thousands of fascinating buildings and places full of history are still at risk and in need of rescue. There is much work to do to secure their future. The historic environment has a profound impact on our culture and identity as well as our economy, both locally and nationally, and it's irreplaceable.feedback

Vitaly Umansky

In the long run should be value additive to the company. However dividend growth may be limited over next few years as FCF (free cash flow)is redirected to capital expenditure.feedback

Natassia Malthe

I was sitting on the bed talking to Harvey when he pushed me back and forced himself onto me. It was not consensual. He did not use a condom. I was completely grossed out. I believe that I disassociated during the time that he was having sex with me. I laid still and closed my eyes and just wanted it to end. I was like a dead person. Afterwards I lay there in complete disgust.feedback

Natassia Malthe

I had experienced sexual harassment from other powerful men in Hollywood, but my experiences with Harvey were the worst.feedback

Simon Wallace - Deutsche Bank

It's a factor, but if you're signing a lease [on a shop] for 10 years and rents increase and rates increase, it's got to be a consideration over the entire lease.feedback

Simon Wallace - Deutsche Bank

The affordability pressures are growing with regards to both rents and rates in those central areas.feedback

Mohammad Jamei

As we near the end of 2017, our data is showing that housing market activity has built up modest momentum since the start of the year, helped by an increase in first-time buyer numbers. Businesses remain cautious about the future amidst an uncertain economic environment, reflected by their growing deposit activity and a dip in their borrowing growth rate.feedback

Yann Delaigue

I asked Balsh to give me the dates for this year as soon as he had them, so I could block out the week!feedback

Ian Balshaw

Yes, Everyone is so welcoming, wherever we've been, and generous too. There have been copious amounts of genepi, red wine, beer, Pastis 51… perfect pre-match preparation!feedback

Ian Balshaw

If you're a skier and a rugby fan, I highly recommend you come to one of the resorts when the Tournoi is on - you meet loads of great people, the games are competitive and the organisers know how to put on a party.feedback

Mike Tindall

But La Clusaz was huge! There are so many British families in the resorts, it's great to have people coming up for a chat. I always enjoy that anyway, but especially in a relaxed environment like this.feedback

Phil Ivey

I was upset as I had played an honest game and won fairly. My integrity is infinitely more important to me than a big win.feedback

Michael R. Bloomberg

We are opening a brand new European headquarters in London – two big, expensive buildings. Would I have done it if I knew they were going to drop out? I've had some thoughts that maybe I wouldn't have, but we are there, we are going to be very happy.feedback

John Biggs

Old Flo has an important place in our borough's history and heritage. I am delighted to have her back in the East End where she belongs.feedback

Dan Beck

She never enjoyed promotion of any type. It was painful for her. Eventually, I flew over to London to see her and we struck a deal. I said that if she would commit to giving me three weeks of nonstop publicity for each album, everything but the kitchen sink, VH1 and radio stuff and photo shoots, I would go back to my counterparts at the label and get them to put everything they needed into that time period. I said, You'll hate it but we'll get it all done and when you're done you're done.' And she laughed, and that's what we did for the next two albums after that.feedback

David Abraham - Channel 4

We are not the BBC and do not have armies of producers to move to Manchester and Salford. We are enthusiasts for the regionalism of our schedule. We are disappointed we are presented as if we are in our palace in London never venturing forth, which is just not true.feedback

Karen Bradley

Channel 4, as a publicly owned broadcaster, should do more to support economic growth and provide for audiences outside of London. This independent analysis makes clear the potential benefits of Channel 4 increasing its impact outside the capital, and we hope to agree a way forward so that the broadcaster truly reflects and represents the full diversity of the UK.feedback

Rebecca Newell

What people often have in their minds is that it is about the First and Second World Wars. (But) the Imperial War Museum in its conception was about recording contemporary conflict.feedback

Michael R. Bloomberg

We were very conscious of being guests in London. We wanted something perfectly modern and eminently British that respected London's traditions. Maybe 1,800 years from now, people will discover the ruins of our building too.feedback

Stephen Parkinson - Kingsley Napley

The concept of dishonesty is central to a whole range of offences, including fraud. For 35 years juries have been told that defendants will only be guilty if the conduct complained of was dishonest by the standards of ordinary reasonable and honest people and also that they must have realised that ordinary honest people would regard their behaviour as dishonest. The Supreme Court has now said that this second limb of the test does not represent the law and that directions based upon it ought no longer to be given by the courts.feedback

Mark Thurston

But, having done that, I respect Steve's decision that now is the right time for him to move on. I would like to thank him for all he has done for the company in this formative period. His honourable decision will enable me to build the executive team for the next phase of the project.feedback

Aditya Chakrabortty

There are many ways to remedy the housing crisis in London – now it’s up to a high court judge to halt one of the worst that’s been embarked upon. Nothing about Gordon Peters sings of being a fighter. He is shy and sweetly reticent, keener to wish me a happy Diwali than to hurl abuse at his opponents. Yet on Wednesday morning at the high court, the 73-year-old kicks off one of the most unequal and important battles I’ve seen.feedback

Richard Donnell

House prices look likely to continue rising in regional cities as affordability remains attractive and values are growing off a low base. The rate of growth is expected to moderate around its current level and will be tempered by economic and sentiment factors such as the squeeze on incomes from rising inflation and concerns over the economic outlook. Talk of a possible increase in interest rates and any knock-on effect for mortgages, is also likely to further temper demand.feedback

Richard Donnell

Stretched affordability, low yields for investors and concerns over Brexit and its impact on employment are weighing on market sentiment. As a result, further house price falls in real terms across London are inevitable as prices re-align to what buyers are willing to spend. Consequently, nominal house price inflation in London looks set to remain between 1pc to 3pc over the next six to twelve months.feedback

Sam Tanenhaus

For Wieseltier, the tension between the scholarly and the sensual is not easily resolved. Until recently, majority opinion in the literary-cultural world–the narrow, gossipy corridor that stretches from Boston to Washington, with tentative windings in the direction of London and Los Angeles–held that not even the most rigorous polishing could restore the sheen to his tarnished image.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

The Commission is not negotiating in a hostile mood (on Brexit). We want a fair deal with Britain and we will have a fair deal with Britain.feedback

Liam Fox

If you want to put it in shorthand people say money will go where money can be made, money can be moved, and money can be removed. That is a function of law and that is why London will remain pre-eminent.feedback

Liam Fox

No, London is and has been the premier financial center of the world. It has a depth of financial infrastructure that really stretches across the United Kingdom. It has got a level of liquidity that people struggle to find anywhere else.feedback

Pier Carlo Padoan

I am a bit more skeptical that after Brexit this will be untouched, and I am not saying this because I like the view. This is simply a fact.feedback

Sam Smith

Not that many, but I did kiss a few men. [I] ran around the streets of London; had a good time. I kind of got back to normal life. I'll never sing again. This album doesn't sound pretty to me. I want this to be more gritty. I want it to sound older, a bit more uncomfortable. In the Lonely Hour is a gin and tonic with your friends. The new album is a whiskey by yourself in a dark room, at night, thinking about life.feedback

Donald Tusk - European Council

We have managed to build and maintain unity among the 27. But ahead of us is still the toughest stress test. If we fail it, the negotiations will end in our defeat. It is in fact up to London how this will end: with a good deal, no deal or no Brexit. But in each of these scenarios we will protect our common interest only by being together.feedback

Felix Hufeld

For the time being, we therefore have to assume that the UK will not be member of the common market or anything close to it following Brexit. There are only 18 months to go before that happens, possibly leading to a so-called cliff-edge situation.feedback

Felix Hufeld

We all will pay a price. The assumption that this will be a cost-free incident is unrealistic.feedback

Felix Hufeld

Things that can be tolerated at the start, for instance to avoid cliff effects, must be brought into an appropriate balance in the medium term.feedback

Pierre Gramegna

It's key for Europe ... that the Number 1 financial centre in the world remains in Europe.feedback

Roy Harris

In terms of air quality improvement this is a move in the right direction, but it is not in itself going to have a huge impact. The need to replace a vehicle and the possible costs involved affect small proportion of people. At the individual level there are some that will feel hard done by from the charge. At a population level there is strong case for making changes.feedback

Rod Mckenzie

We want cleaner air, but we are worried that business is unfairly impacted by an accelerated scheme of measures which seem to punish businesses and increase costs.feedback

Guy Pitt - Transport for London

The charge is more of an encouragement. We are not trying to make money. It's a slightly punitive slap on the wrist that we hope might bring forward when drivers are going to change their behavior.feedback

Michael R. Bloomberg

My former wife was a Brit, my daughters have British passports, so we love England – it's the father of our country, I suppose. But what they are doing is not good and there is no easy way to get out of it because if they don't pay a penalty, everyone else would drop out. So they can't get as good of a deal as they had before. I did say that I thought it was the single stupidest thing any country has ever done but then we Trumped it.feedback

Karl Iagnemma

Cities like Singapore and London are going to show the rest of the world what's possible.feedback

Jeffrey C. Sprecher

We are thrilled to become a shareholder of Euroclear. Euroclear's infrastructure plays an increasingly important role as technology, collateral, risk management and regulation continue to drive an emphasis on post-trade services. This transaction demonstrates our continued focus on expanding our investments in mission critical clearing and risk management assets. We look forward to supporting Euroclear's role as an independent provider of vitally important financial market infrastructure services.feedback

Michael R. Bloomberg

Whatever London and the UK's relationship to the EU proves to be, London's language, timezone, talent, infrastructure and culture all position it to grow as a global capital for years to come. We are very optimistic about London's future and we are really excited to be a part of it. They didn't have an immigration problem and they didn't need control of their borders. They have the English Channel – that gave them control of their borders.feedback

David Adjaye

The complexity of the Holocaust story, including the British context, is a series of layers that have become hidden by time. Our approach to the project has been to reveal these layers and not let them remain buried under history. To do so, we wanted to create a living place, not just a monument to something of the past. We wanted to orchestrate an experience that reminds us of the fragility and constant strife for a more equitable world.feedback

Felix Hufeld

Banks that are planning a comprehensive division of work between offices in London and the EU need to transplant and split up their entire ecosystem established over the years – that means IT infrastructures, knowledge, processes and people. What is not allowed is for the subsidiary in the EU not to have an adequate control system on-site, and to therefore be dependent on the sister or parent company in London in order to fulfil the necessary control functions.feedback

Marcus Samuelsson

I'm committed to telling a layered journey of the African-American experience, which you have to really dig to find. I think people have a strong thirst for this history, and a big part of it is here in Harlem.feedback

Michel Barnier

I will give you some examples. In London, to leave the Euratom treaty without an agreement would mean immediate problems for the import of nuclear material, whether for nuclear power plants or hospitals.feedback

Miles Celic - TheCityUK

Firms are beyond the planning stage now. If they haven't done so already, most will be ready to press go on their contingency plans in the New Year.feedback

Josep Maria Bartomeu

We didn't speak about football, only other things. He is my friend and wherever we are, we will be together. I congratulate him, he deserves this, he has done a lot in football, he is a very respected guy and with Messi he is one of the two stars of world football, and I am very, very happy to be in the final three.feedback

Pierre Gramegna

The pressure on companies is much higher than what governments anticipated. This is much more of an urgent matter than people think.feedback

Pierre Gramegna

I find that a balanced final agreement with the UK, specifically for financial services, is in the interests of Europe itself. What is the value of access to the EU single market? Can you put a figure on that? I cannot. Money is really not what's the most important.feedback

Joseph J. Lhota

It's the next step in bringing us into the 21st century, which we need to do. It's going to be transformative. The millennial generation, those who are more prone to new technology, will be our greatest users in the early stages.feedback

Sadiq Khan

He's articulating publicly what many CEOs and investors who love working in London have been saying privately, which is that unless they have certainty about what happens after March 29, 2019, they have got to make a plan B. He's not bluffing. When I speak to businesses each day, they're not bluffing.feedback

Jack Tait

You can't just turn to your roommate and say, Oh, how much do your parents make?feedback

Sam Smith

Oh, my god, I just buy everything – heels, dresses. We have a great time. Looking back on it, it was the fear of saying the wrong thing and offending … And I was 19 when I started writing the first album. I'd just moved to London from a village – I was literally the only gay in the village. I didn't know what I wanted to say.feedback

Michael Enright

I will remember Manchester Arena and the two attacks in London on Westminster Bridge and at Borough Market. The attack in Manchester especially brought a lot of emotions. I'm used to a lot of death, and terrorist attacks, but this was different, it's my home town. I'll give ISIS no quarter. I won't expect much mercy from them and I will not give them much mercy, that I can promise you.feedback

Michael Enright

It might be a bit strange but when I heard about the attack on London Bridge I thought, I wish I'd been there. I'd have grabbed the nearest knife. I don't know which way it would have gone but at least I could have gone for them.feedback

Sadiq Khan

Of course that's one of the options because you can't have a situation where our parliament is supposed to be sovereign, our parliament rejects the deal made by our government and everyone is in paralysis.feedback

Sadiq Khan

That's why the prime minister and our government need to – as soon as possible – announce what plans we've got for the transition period. That includes how long it's going to be and what it entails. Otherwise, my fear is that other businesses could well be thinking of leaving London and will realise those plans by making these announcements.feedback

Sadiq Khan

If you speak to the CBI, they say we need certainty by the first quarter of next year. The deputy governor of the Bank of England is saying by the end of this year. The prime minister and our government has got to provide businesses with the certainty they need.feedback

Boris Johnson

I suggest humbly to our friends and partners in Brussels: Now is the time to get on with it. They should grip it, get on with it and start thinking about the future. I'm sure that we can both think very creatively and very positively about how to come to arrangements that suit our constituents on both sides of the Channel and benefit businesses not just in this but in Paris and Frankfurt and across the whole of Europe. We think it's an excellent text, and excellent basis on which to proceed and we hope our European friends and partners agree.feedback

Boris Johnson

I don't think anybody could conceivably want a military solution to this problem. The possibility of some kind of military option … that possibility must at least theoretically be maintained on the table. No one wants any kind of military solution to the problem.feedback

Sadiq Khan

To be fair to the chief executive of Goldman Sachs, he's articulating publicly what many CEOs, investors and people who love working in London have been saying privately, which is, unless they have certainty about what happens after March 2019, they've got to make a Plan B. They can't afford to say to their shareholders and those who work for their business come March 2019: 'We forgot to make plans, we didn't plan for this and so, as a consequence, we're paying the price for falling off the cliff-edge.feedback

Joseph J. Lhota

And now myself, to get this done. It just takes focus from on high to see it get done, and it's going to get done.feedback

Sadiq Khan

We've got a health crisis in London caused directly by the poor-quality air. Roughly speaking, more than 9,000 Londoners die prematurely because of the poor quality air.feedback

Sadiq Khan

We've got a health crisis in London caused by the poor quality air. Roughly speaking, each year more than 9,000 Londoners die prematurely because of the poor quality air – children in our city whose lungs are underdeveloped, with adults who suffer from conditions such as asthma, dementia and strokes directly caused by poor quality air.feedback

Tim Farron

It's disgraceful that so much taxpayers' money has been wasted by the government trying to avoid producing a proper plan to tackle air pollution. This money could have been spent instead on schemes to improve air quality in our towns and cities. We need radical action now to reduce the thousands of premature deaths caused by air pollution each year.feedback

Alan Andrews

The government's insistence on fighting us in court, rather than cleaning up our air, is baffling. The plans produced in response to two court orders show a similar reluctance to get a grip. All we've seen is inaction and delay.feedback

Alan Andrews

The sums recovered from the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs are a small fraction of the costs involved in bringing these cases, which we have brought in the public interest over the course of seven years to uphold the right to breathe clean air.feedback

Mike Parton - Arqiva

Following the IPO, the group's balance sheet will be appropriate for an asset rich infrastructure company with long term contracts, blue-chip clients and strong cash flows, providing investment and allowing for significant shareholder returns through a progressive dividend.feedback

Alison Butler

This report underlines the major flaws in universal credit, which is placing more and more Croydon and Southwark families in rent arrears and at risk of losing their home. The government needs to fix this policy now or risk devastating thousands more people not only in Croydon but nationwide.feedback

Dale Boger

These drugs are more fragile because even the newer versions are still based on binding to different combinations of enzymes.feedback

Floyd Romesberg

A lot of people say that the way forward is to improve the diagnostics and have a lot of narrow-spectrum antibiotics. But, as things stand, that will never happen. Antibiotics are cheaply priced and don't generate many sales because people only need them for a few days. Given how expensive they are to produce, pharma companies already struggle to make a profit on broad-spectrum antibiotics. So a narrow-spectrum antibiotic, which they're going to sell even less of, just isn't viable.feedback

Joseph Ndieyira

So far, our work is at a very preliminary stage and we have still got to go through further preclinical [tests] and then clinical testing. But these kind of brute-force concepts circumvent many of the strategies bacteria have evolved to evade antibiotics. This new mechanism is so lethal that they don't have any defence to it.feedback

Dale Boger

It's hard to imagine a bacteria simultaneously making changes that could overcome three different mechanisms. So the durability should be extremely high.feedback

Sadiq Khan

Today marks a major milestone in this journey with the introduction of the T-charge to encourage motorists to ditch polluting, harmful vehicles. London now has the world's toughest emissions standard with older, more polluting vehicles paying up to £21.50 a day to drive in the center of the city. This is the time to stand up and join the battle to clear the toxic air we are forced to breathe.feedback

Sadiq Khan

I am transforming our bus fleet, getting rid of the oldest polluting taxis and creating healthier streets that will leave a lasting legacy for our children. But I can't do this alone. I urgently need government to step up and face their responsibilities by delivering a diesel scrappage fund and a Cleaner Air Act that is fit for purpose.feedback

Sadiq Khan

As mayor, I am determined to take urgent action to help clean up London's lethal air. The shameful scale of the public health crisis London faces, with thousands of premature deaths caused by air pollution, must be addressed. Today marks a major milestone in this journey with the introduction of the T-Charge to encourage motorists to ditch polluting, harmful vehicles.feedback

Anthony Viljoen

Some of the big guys that exited small mining stocks a few years ago are sniffing around. It's been a while since big institutions have taken a look into this space.feedback

Anthony Viljoen

The next phase of commodity supercycle is going to focus toward specialty metals. Before tin prices crashed in the 1980s, there was a profusion of tin companies listed in London; we want to rejuvenate that.feedback

Stephen Holgate

We now know that air pollution has a substantial impact on many chronic long-term conditions, increasing strokes and heart attacks in susceptible individuals. The implementation of the T-charge is a positive step towards cleaning up London's air and it is showing to the world that it is possible to change behaviours in order to reduce the harms from high polluting vehicles.feedback

Sean Payton

We had the right shoes. There are so many plays on tape of guys not wearing the right shoes and we've been over in London and went through that. We were on point with the footing; I thought that was important.feedback

Alistair Kirkwood - National Football League

We're at the stage where we have 2 big TV deals: Our big partnership is with Sky and we also have a relationship with the BBC. As of week six of the season, just over 14 million people will have seen the NFL [in the UK]. We still have quite a lot of room for growth.feedback

Alistair Kirkwood - National Football League

[Viewers] can't see the ball when they watch for the very first time. A lot of our content work is about trying to make that come to life. A typical complaint from nonfans is that our sports is that we're too stop-start. How do you come up with content that keep people interested?feedback

Alistair Kirkwood - National Football League

We have offices in China and Canada and they would logically be the next territories for us.feedback

Alistair Kirkwood - National Football League

The level of popularity for the sport is growing increasingly higher. Our fanbase is much younger than for indigenous sports. Teenagers and students are coming on board and for the most part the whole idea of adopting a new sport fits in.feedback

Sajid Javid

I don't believe that we need to focus on the green belt here, there is lots of brownfield land, and brownfield first has been a policy of ours for a while. There is a lot more that can be done, density is a big issue – if you look at the density of London for example, it won't surprise your viewers to learn that London has some of the highest levels of demand in the country, the density in London is a lot lower than many other cities, Paris, Berlin, compared to most cities around Europe, so that's one area where you can expand more.feedback

Lucy Masoud

That building as it stands there today in west London is a symbol of this country's failures. It's a symbol of how this country treats its social housing tenants and I think every politician, every MP should be dragged from the House of Commons to look at that building and made to see and understand that the decisions they made have led to what took place on June 14. We have to fight against the social apartheid that this Tory government is forcing on London and other cities and intensifying every day.feedback

Nick Christian

London is a great city but these days you can have an equally successful career outside it. We toyed with commuting but have decided to snap the elastic completely as it seemed a false economy to move out yet still be beholden to the hours and expectations of London offices.feedback

David Fell

People are seeing now as a good time to jump. The price gap between homes in the country and city is closing for the first time since 2007.feedback

David Fell

The price gap between the city and the country peaked in April at £250,000 and it has been closing ever since.feedback

David Fell

If you cut out a move to suburbia and move straight to the sticks, you are nearly twice as likely to move back to the city again.feedback

David Fell

The trend to move to the country has continued even as the market in the capital has weakened. It's well-connected rural markets that are benefiting from the exodus rather than places in the middle of nowhere.feedback

Diane Abbott

We have to fight against the social apartheid that this Tory government is forcing on London and other cities and intensifying every day. We have to fight for decent social housing, we have to fight for a properly funded fire service, but above all we have to fight for justice for Grenfell.feedback

Lucy Masoud

Had that building not been a social housing building, we know there wouldn't have been so many failures. Why did Grenfell have flammable cladding and no sprinklers and only one dry riser? Because it was social housing and the decision makers don't care about the social housing tenants. That building as it stands there today in west London is a symbol of this country's failures.feedback

Xavier Bertrand

I am conscious Brexit is difficult but I think it is an opportunity to strengthen those relations.feedback

Martine Aubry

Japanese companies are asking themselves the question, we wanted to come to Europe but now are are looking to make a move to mainland Europe. At the same time London remains in our heart and we don't to give that impression that we would turn out back on the UK, we have very close ties in the UK and want to maintain them.feedback

Juergen Klopp

Sky, thank you! It's a very very good decision, especially for the fans, that's number one because it's still difficult for them. We will do everything from the club's side, like bringing the fans on Friday night at least back from London. We respect all the contracts in the Premier League, but it's still the players who decide how nice the game is, and when they never can rest, it's a problem. We only have one day football off ( Christmas Day) in the year and I think that should be okay for most of the people.feedback

Alexa Chung

They're actually style wise probably two of my least favourite decades, but in my mind funny prom photos featuring couples with listless expressions are always from those eras. I became drawn to the stiff cakey dresses of the Fifties and that teddy boy look that was then regurgitated in the Eighties, but through a posh girl, Tatler rave lens. I just wanted it to be fun. I had a leavers ball I attended once sixth form ended.feedback

Alexa Chung

I made a skirt out of black taffeta fabric that I half stapled and half sewed myself into. On top I had a backless pink sequin top. It was weird but I think I thought I was like Sarah Jessica Parker or something.feedback

Hope Oloye

Oxford is completely different to Newham in every way. I expected it to be, but it was definitely a culture shock. It's beautiful and calm, but it's a lot less diverse. The people I've come across are friendly and open, and from all over the UK. But there's definitely lots from the north London bubble. What weirded me out at first is that they all knew each other. I thought, where do you know each other from?feedback

This is not a euphoric period. Everyone understands the natural fluctuations of the market. It's difficult to survive as a young gallery.feedback

What becomes more obvious day-by-day is that the Brexiteers are hooked on brinkmanship - and have been since the beginning. Unfortunately, we are now so close to the cliff edge of a hard Brexit that we can see the drop right in front of our feet. It is painfully clear that the UK government is not going to propose workable solutions for the benefit of the island of Ireland. Indeed, the low priority afforded to Northern Ireland by London is disheartening, to say the least.feedback

It's cool playing over there, don't get me wrong. Just more of the long week, messes up a bunch of people's schedules. I'm pretty sure y'all [the media] wanna be in y'all bed right now, too. But naw, it's all good. It'll be love. The fans over there are great.feedback

It is shocking that Southern and the Government believe that drivers can be brought off in this fashion, you cannot put a price on the safety and welfare of passengers and drivers. The proposals also fly in the face of agreements reached in Wales and Scotland that give the guaranteed of a guard on our trains. RMT will continue to fight for a safe, secure and accessible railway for all and our dispute remains on.feedback

I am extremely proud of all we have done together in just under a decade to turn LSE Group into a truly global financial market infrastructure group.feedback

London is the optimal place to set up and scale a fintech company. Thanks to the unique ecosystem we have in the city – which gives us access to talent, capital, forward-looking retailers and consumers – we've grown into a major brand in a very short period of time, becoming Europe's fastest growing loyalty and mobile payments provider.feedback

Nikolay Storonsky - Revolut

In just two years, Revolut has raised over $90 million in investment and attracted over 900,000 users. There is no doubt in my mind that a large part of our success is down to choosing London and the U.K. as our headquarters and home.feedback

Kevin Chong - Investec

A lot of it is to do with the fact that we have such a high concentration of financial service players in London in such a tight geography. And fintech, unlike some of the other technology sectors, is one of those areas where you can't avoid having to partner with or have some sort of relationship with the established players.feedback

Clearly Brexit poses major challenges but London's position as a global financial centre and world-class technology hub is built upon strong foundations which cannot be replicated anywhere else. This highlights the need for a Brexit which enables London to maintain its place at the heart of the single market, as the continent's financial capital.feedback

I found it disorientating being in Manchester for the week [of the Tory party conference] because I normally take all of my political analysis from the London Evening Standard.feedback

In the meantime, members of the senior leadership team, along with other senior teachers, will be responsible for the day to day running of the School during Mr Onac's absence.feedback

What's tried on women is tried on men as well. Yeah, but it wasn't bad. […] Somebody tried to pull – it was a question, and I said no thank you. I thought: 'Wait a minute, is the London scene – the people who run British showbusiness – are there a lot of homosexuals involved here? Because, if so, I'm going back to Cardiff.feedback

John McDonnell

The government cannot continue to drag its feet on this matter as it will be the British banking industry as a whole that risks long-term damage to the reputation on which it depends.feedback

It's time the chancellor considered a wide-ranging independent inquiry that leaves no stone unturned in rooting out unlawful and damaging activity.feedback

This is the third high-profile money-laundering scandal to involve major British banks this year, and London has become notorious as a global centre for money laundering. There are many hardworking people in our banking sector who will feel frustrated and dismayed by such stories, but they are let down by poor leadership and weak oversight that undermines the financial sector's reputation.feedback

Roger Goodell

We did not ask for that, Sal. No. We spent today talking about the issues that our players have been trying to bring attention to, about issues in our communities to make our communities better. I think we all agree there's nothing more important than getting back into our communities and trying to make our communities better. That was the entire focus today.feedback

Donald Brydon - London Stock Exchange Group

There will be many opportunities ahead to celebrate Xavier's remarkable achievements. Under his leadership, LSEG has been transformed in scale to become a truly diversified and international leader in financial markets infrastructure. I am delighted that Xavier will remain as CEO and continue to lead the company until his successor is appointed. LSEG remains well positioned for the opportunities ahead and remains confident of delivering further success and value for shareholders.feedback

Rajesh Agrawal

London remains a world leader in fintech and the companies on this trade delegation are at the forefront of developing cutting edge financial technologies. The fact that we have seen over £1 billion worth of venture capital investment into London fintech companies since the EU referendum vote offers further proof that global investors still believe London will remain a leading fintech hub for many years to come.feedback

We need to be cautious about the implications of these results until we know more about what causes the observed results. One possible mechanism could be the anxiety-reducing effect of alcohol. But more research is needed to test this.feedback

Sam Claflin

I always thought, naïvely, that I knew what it would be like. I always thought that I'd understand. [But when he was] born, it's like another level of love that you've never experienced before – [that] you can't describe to someone unless [they're] in it. Of course it's hard, [but] it's all worth it. The rewards are just endless. He's literally the best thing that's ever happened to me.feedback
