It's been an awful time. The worst weeks of my life, professionally, and I've had pretty tough times as a lawyer and an MP.feedback

The 19th century was the century of empires, the 20th was the century of nation states, and the 21st is the century of cities and mayors. Sorry, I didn't hear the question.feedback

Unfortunately VW made it abundantly clear that they have no interest or intention of reimbursing Londoners or indeed any UK customers who bought these polluting vehicles. They are also in denial over their responsibility to help clean up London's filthy air and mitigate the damage their cars have caused.feedback

It is now nearly two years since the 'dieselgate' scandal and the Government must stop dragging their feet and urgently intervene. VW is making a laughing stock of the UK – the Government needs to demand a compensation package that equals the billions VW gave customers in America.feedback

Crossrail 2 is essential for the future prosperity of London and the south-east, so I'm pleased that the Transport Secretary and I have reached an agreement to take this vital project forward. We will continue to work together to ensure the project is value for money and provides the maximum benefits for jobs and growth in the region over the coming decades.feedback

I want to see everyone playing their part in tackling the housing crisis in London because it is simply unacceptable that Londoners continue to be priced out of the city they call home. We know that solving the housing crisis is not going to happen overnight, but I very much welcome so many housing associations and councils committing to build the new and genuinely affordable homes Londoners so desperately need.feedback

Transport for London (TfL) serves a vibrant, diverse and multicultural city, and provision of an inclusive transport service is at the heart of TfL's purpose. I am aware however, that some customers may not relate to or feel comfortable with the way that certain station announcements are made.feedback

Today, we face another wave of growth, the likes of which we've not seen for a century. In recent years, too much focus has been dedicated to developing the high-price, high-rise central London market. These expensive developments... haven't delivered the genuinely affordable homes ordinary Londoners desperately need.feedback

The key thing is not to detract from the great work of our fire service and the emergency services. I want to pay tribute to Newsnight for their report. There's going to be a public inquiry and a police investigation. I'm not willing to wait for that, though, so I've asked Dany Cotton, the commissioner of the London fire service, to carry out an urgent review.feedback

Notting Hill Carnival is a firm London tradition and incredibly important to the local community. It should not be moved. Look at this scumbag tryna using the Grenfell tragedy for their "get rid of carnival" agenda. We ain't buying it mate.feedback

The Notting Hill carnival is one of the world's biggest street festivals and has become a firm London tradition over many decades. It was born out of the African-Caribbean immigrant community in north Kensington and Notting Hill in the 1950s, and it's only right that this remains its home. Any attempt to impose a move to another location on the carnival, particularly at a time when the community has little trust in those in positions of authority, would be a mistake.feedback

It has been an incredibly difficult few weeks for London, but we must carry on as a city and that means pushing forward our work to keep Londoners moving around our city. We have to make not using your car the affordable, safest and most convenient option for Londoners going about their daily lives. This is not only essential for dealing with congestion as London grows, but crucial for reducing our toxic air pollution, and improving the health of all Londoners.feedback

All of London and all of the country is grieving today with Mohammad's family. The dignity with which Omar and Hashem, his two brothers, have conducted themselves makes us all in awe of them.feedback

The government must urgently get a grip on this health emergency and introduce a new Clean Air Act that takes air pollution seriously, plus a national diesel scrappage fund and reforms to vehicle excise duty. But given that much of the toxic pollution today in London is being blown over from the continent, we must continue to work closely with our neighbours to reduce emissions across Europe, even after Brexit.feedback

We don't yet know the full details, but this was clearly a deliberate attack on innocent Londoners, many of whom were finishing prayers during the holy month of Ramadan. While this appears to be an attack on a particular community, like the terrible attacks in Manchester, Westminster and London Bridge it is also an assault on all our shared values of tolerance, freedom and respect. The situation is still unfolding and I urge all Londoners to remain calm and vigilant. Please report anything suspicious to the police, but only call 999 in an emergency.feedback

He seemed a normal bloke, a normal family, normal kids, happy go lucky. He would also shout quite a lot but the kids seemed happy. I wouldn't have said he was someone with mental problems. While this appears to be an attack on a particular community, like the terrible attacks in Manchester, Westminster and London Bridge it is also an assault on all our shared values of tolerance, freedom and respect.feedback

The best response we can show now after horrific terrorist attacks and the awful Grenfell Tower fire is to celebrate the values that unite us. It has been an extremely difficult few months for our city and for all Londoners. The horrific terrorist attack in Finsbury Park last night follows the awful Grenfell Tower fire and the recent attacks on Westminster Bridge and London Bridge. Londoners are understandably grieving, and all those affected are of course in deep distress.feedback

I grew up in a similar council estate in South London and this could have easily been my family, my friends, and my community. I share their anger and concern.feedback

My thoughts and prayers, as I'm sure the thoughts and prayers of the entire country, are with the family and friends of those in the building and affected by this tragic and horrific fire. Also, pay tribute the amazing emergency services, from the fire service – we have more than 250 fire fighters many of whom have been there from the beginning… Also, London Ambulance Service, more than a hundred paramedics helping out during the course of the night, more than a hundred police officers.feedback

These questions are really important questions that need to be answered. Across London we have many, many tower blocks and what we can't have is a situation where people's safety is put at risk because of bad advice being given or if it is the case, as has been alleged, of tower blocks not being properly serviced or maintained.feedback

Thankfully residents didn't take that advice but fled... these are some of the questions that have to be answered. It's very distressing, not just for those of us watching as lay people, but also very distressing for the emergency services. We declared a major incident very early, which meant not just the fire service but also the London ambulance service, the police and the others were involved at the scene.feedback

You'll be aware we're talking about a 24-storey tower block, 120 flats. The bad news, as the fire commissioner confirmed, there have been a number of fatalities and 50 people have been taken so far to five hospitals across London. Just doing some basic crude maths, which is all we can do, there are 120 flats, many of the flats are four bedroom, a number of people when they heard the noise and smelt the smoke left their flats over the course of the night.feedback

Questions need to be answered as soon as possible. We declared a major incident very early, which meant not just the fire service but also the London Ambulance Service, the police and the others were involved at the scene.feedback

London is open. Our resilience, unity and defiance of those evil individuals who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life will never change. As we mark one week on from the appalling attack, we are coming together to raise money for the victims and their families. I urge all Londoners to do what they can to support this appeal and show the world that we are a city that will never be divided or cowed by terrorism.feedback

I'm calling on all Londoners to pull together, and send a clear message around the world that our city will never be divided by these hideous individuals who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life. London will never be cowed or divided by terrorism.feedback

London stands in defiance against this cowardly attack on our city, our people, our values and our way of life. As the mayor of London, I want to send a clear message to the sick and evil extremists who commit these hideous crimes. We will defeat you. You will not win. This vigil shows the people that did this that they cannot divide us. I think Londoners have pulled together like we always do and have handled this well, even though we all feel the pain.feedback

Your perverse ideology has nothing to do with the true values of Islam. As the mayor of London I want to send a clear message to the sick and evil extremists who commit these hideous crimes. We will defeat you. You will not win. And as a proud a patriotic British Muslim I say this: You do not commit these disgusting acts in my name. We stand together tonight to honour the memories of the innocent lives lost and people injured in the barbaric attack in our city on Saturday night. London stands in defiance against this cowardly attack on our city, our people, our values and our way of life.feedback

I hope that she trounces him. I'm the mayor of London. … As the mayor of London, I'll speak, within reason, to anybody if it's in the best interests of our country. [T]ell him I will remember those statements.feedback

Terrorists "hate democracy, they hate elections. They want to stop us voting on Thursday … we can't allow them to do that, we can't be cowed by terrorism. There aren't words to describe the grief and anger our city is feeling. I'm appalled and furious that these cowardly terrorists deliberately targeted innocent Londoners and visitors enjoying their Saturday night. I condemn unequivocally these terrorists in the strongest possible terms. They are evil cowards and London will never be cowed. We will never let them win.feedback

Metropolitan police are responding to the horrific terrorist attack at London Bridge and Borough Market. My thoughts are with everyone affected, and I'd like to thank the brave men and women of our emergency services who were first on the scene and will be working throughout the night. This was a deliberate and cowardly attack on innocent Londoners and visitors to our city enjoying their Saturday night. I condemn it in the strongest possible terms. There is no justification whatsoever for such barbaric acts.feedback
