Investing in London's transport network benefits not just Londoners, but the whole of the UK. My message to the Government is this: we can't stand still. Together we must keep investing in improvements, like at Bank station, both today and in the future.
I think Londoners are going to love the new, upgraded Bank station—it's light, bright, spacious and more accessible 🚇 Thank you to everyone for your patience. I guarantee it’s worth the wait.twitter.com/EveningStandar…o
Our city’s nurses made huge sacrifices during the pandemic and continue to go above and beyond to care for Londoners. Today I met @theRCN at City Hall to hear about the issues they face, from staffing to the cost of living crisis. I'm committed to doing all I can to support them.
Applications open: If you’re a passionate and driven young Londoner, read on... The Young People’s Action Group works with @LDN_VRU to ensure young people's opinions and experiences influence policy on issues like policing and school attendance. See how you can get involved:
Thanks to record investment from City Hall, the Violent Crime Taskforce has helped deliver: Removal of 3,000 knives and 2,000 other weapons from our streets 11% drop in knife crime with injury 30% per cent drop in gun crime since May 2016
I’m proud to have funded the establishment of the Met’s Violent Crime Taskforce. It’s working around the clock to target the most dangerous offenders and to bear down on violence across our city. news.met.police.uk/news/thousands…
London Living Wage employers have quadrupled since I’ve been Mayor. But as Londoners face the cost of living crisis, I’m determined to do more. Today organisations across London joined City Hall to launch a new steering group to focus on making London a Living Wage city.
The terrorist attack in Buffalo highlights the growing threat of far-right extremism in the US & Europe. Cities & countries around the world need to recognise that this is an evolving global danger which we must unite against. We must not let those who seek to divide us succeed.
Happy to say that The Northern line has fully reopened, on schedule and to budget, after the successful completion of the latest phase of vital upgrade works at Bank station. The busy station is now more modern, accessible and easy to navigate for all.
From the Queen’s Jubilee to the Women’s EUROs, Notting Hill carnival to ABBA’s Voyage show, we've got a massive summer ahead in London.
We need a thoughtful, objective review of the effectiveness of our drug laws. As I told @npratc, that’s what my new London Drugs Commission will do. #NPRConsiderThis npr.org/2022/05/12/109…
The thoughts and prayers of London are with the people of Buffalo and all the families who have lost loved ones in this dreadful attack. Our diversity is our strength. Hate will never win.
But best of all, we showed the US, and the world, that London is open and ready to welcome tourists, students and businesses back to our great city.
I spoke to Secretary Hillary Clinton to discuss the urgent issues facing London and the US, including our recovery from COVID and how essential it is that we protect women’s rights all over the world.
I met with California’s most exciting businesses and investors to invite them to set their sights on London. I heard great stories about how today’s business leaders plan to expand into our city—a move that would create valuable jobs for so many Londoners.
I met with the Muslim Public Affairs Council and lots of inspiring young people to hear about their incredible work to challenge hate and bring communities together.
I spoke out against online hate speech. At Stanford I talked about how vital it is that social media companies do more to protect the people who use their platforms. bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan…
I had fruitful discussions with the @MayorOfLA about how our cities can work together to improve air quality and tackle the climate crisis. I also saw for myself how major innovations in zero-emission vehicles are being developed at @laincubator.
I announced a new partnership with @NBCUniversal and @Film_London to give underrepresented young Londoners a chance to get into the film industry. This is important work that will help level the playing field for so many young people.
I announced the return of Major League Baseball to London next year, and an ambitious programme to boost grassroots baseball across our city.
In New York, I launched the biggest international tourism campaign London has ever seen to bring visitors back to our city to help our economic recovery from the pandemic.
This week I visited America to bang the drum for London and show the world that London is open for business. Here are a few highlights: 🧵f

Access to nature is critical for our health and wellbeing. London has already reintroduced beavers, and my rewilding taskforce is working on more opportunities to restore wildlife sites. Here’s how we’re bringing nature back to the capital: theguardian.com/environment/20…
London is home to some of the best art galleries in the world. This London Gallery Weekend you can make the most of them with over 150 free events and performances, with curated routes from the likes of @NaomieHarris, @robbiewilliams and @Simone_Rocha_. Find out more:
Good news: the Jubilee Line Night Tube returns next Saturday 21 May 🚇 I know how important Night Tube services are for giving Londoners travelling at night the confidence that they can get across our city on safe and reliable routes.twitter.com/LBC/status/152…a
The film industry in London is booming. Job opportunities should be open to people from all backgrounds. @Film_London is partnering with @UniversalPics to create jobs and opportunities behind the scenes for young Londoners from deprived backgrounds.
I’m deeply concerned that the Government is backtracking on plans to introduce a 9pm watershed for advertising less healthy food on television. Restrictions on advertising work and play an enormous role in putting healthier food and drink in the spotlight.
Exciting news: I'm working with @UniversalPics and @Film_London to create new opportunities behind the camera for underrepresented young Londoners, where they could work on blockbusters like Wicked and the next Fast & Furious. 📺 @BBCLondonNewssS
We need to have an open and honest conversation about the decriminalisation of cannabis—and that means considering evidence from around the world. My priority will always be protecting Londoners, and ensuring our city is safer and fairer for all.
Another great day at LACI sharing our vision & startup technologies for a cleaner, stronger, inclusive green economy with @MayorOfLA & @MayorofLondon Khan who met with our Transportation Electrification Partnership members & their powerful passenger & heavy-duty EVs.

London’s film and television industry is lauded around the world. It was wonderful to celebrate the close relationship between the creative industries in LA & London and meet not-for-profit @ghettofilm school, who are developing the next generation of storytellers.
It was inspiring to join @MayorOfLA at @laincubator today to see the innovative work taking place in LA to improve air quality through zero-emissions vehicles. I was particularly impressed by young people’s designs for zero emission school buses—they give me hope for our future. twitter.com/laincubator/st…
Deborah James @bowelbabe is an inspiration, and I am thrilled to hear that she has been honoured with a Damehood. Deborah, on behalf of your fellow Londoners I send you my love and congratulations today.
Great news: there are now over 10,000 electric vehicle charging points for Londoners to use. Around a third of the UK’s total. This is a significant milestone in our efforts to reduce emissions in the capital, and we won't stop there. 🚗 🌳
As part of a ground-breaking partnership between @MayorofLondon @NBCUniversal and Film London, young Londoners from underrepresented communities will work behind-the-camera on high-end productions 🙌 👉Read more herefilmlondon.org.uk/latest/young-l…hH

A pleasure to meet with Dame Donna Langley DBE, Chair of NBC Universal Pictures. Our new Below the Line talent partnership with @NBCUniversal and @Film_London will give young Londoners an incredible opportunity to work on film and TV masterpieces of the future.
Film and TV production in London is booming. I’m delighted to visit @UniversalPics to announce a new partnership with @NBCUniversal and @Film_London to give underrepresented young Londoners a step-up into the industry.
London’s film industry is booming. We must make sure its opportunities are open to people from all backgrounds. Our new partnership with @NBCUniversal & @Film_London will connect young Londoners from diverse backgrounds with coveted entry level roles in this exciting industry.
Thrilled to share that we’ve beaten our own home-building record, with 18,722 genuinely affordable homes started in 2021/22. Thanks to everyone who has made this possible. Together we’ll keep building the affordable homes Londoners deserve.
London is an unrivalled location for businesses to invest in. More and more US tech companies are choosing to expand into our city. Today I met with some of California’s most exciting businesses to invite them to set their sights on London.
.@MikeBloomberg is right. The UK is an economic and cultural powerhouse—and we need a strong and competitive press. Thrilled that Mike is continuing his long investment in world class journalism here by launching @BloombergUK. twitter.com/MikeBloomberg/…

My new London Drugs Commission will use the latest evidence from cities around the world to examine the effectiveness of our drugs laws on cannabis. I’ve got an open mind and look forward to hearing what the commission concludes. 📺@BBCLondonNewssK
Far-right extremism is a global danger. It’s threatening our hard won rights, our freedoms and our values. We must unite with our international partners against it. My piece for the @Independent: independent.co.uk/voices/far-rig…
Great to talk to @NY1 about the launch of our new international #LetsDoLondon tourism campaign. After the past two awful years, London is open again. I can’t wait to welcome tourists, students and businesses back to make the most of our vibrant city in this special year.
On his US tour the mayor of London briefly took centre stage throwing the opening pitch at the San Francisco Giants’ stadium. @HarryLow49 was there. More on Sadiq Khan's US visit: bbc.in/3vZ7h9B
