The whole role of a London Mayor is certainly very appealing but unfortunately the benefits for having a London Mayor are proving to be very disappointing and costly.
Drug crimes, Antisocial behaviour, Pollution are all out of control. Equally, concerning are the numerous busy and unsafe roads close to schools that are actually preventing parents/guardians from doing the school run on 'foot'.
Many people are leaving London to live in some dull town or village with just one convenient store and soon London will be over run by drug gangs, even to tourist will be too scared to visit London given its recent reputation.
The whole of London has been allowed to disintegrate, and if money is the actual reason then is the cost of having a London Mayor and his department part of the problem?
