Well, go down those streets at the moment, where TfL is desperately trying to spend its underspend as rapidly as possible and is digging up every part of London and actually creating the congestion that you say you have solved. To make London a safer city go out and talk to people about street crime and whether the figure is coming down by 2% or whatever. But, in fact, people are dealing with real problems here. To strengthen London's economy - we're already having predictions of a slowdown. Regenerate deprived areas - where's that happening? Promote the case for London - well, you've failed on that, haven't you? You're accepting your own figures. The government's still taking more and more money away. Lead the urban renaissance of London - well, that's very been good for glaziers, but very little help in terms of what's happening out there. Improve London's environment - ask your friends, if they're still friends of yours. And celebrate London's cultural diversity - well, we've certainly had a lot of celebrations.
So the question is, is this just an amateurish outfit that you've gathered around you of people who are now demanding higher wages from you to create exactly what for Londoners? It is a serious question - because of all of us here have accepted there is a case for a London operation, but the way you've handled it in terms of your wars with government, in terms of the staff you've got around you, in terms of priorities you've set, have simply undermined the case to actually get more power for it.
