I love London. I was born here, my children were born here, I’ve worked here all my life. This is a unique city, with an energy like nowhere else in the world.
I’m so proud of London, but I know that too many Londoners don’t share in our city’s success.
I’ve been a childcare officer in Brixton, working with decent families in tremendous poverty. I was a psychiatric social worker in Southwark, helping those who need extra support to get on in life. I’ve seen the true impact of the inequality that holds our city back.
I’ve always fought to build a better, fairer society. That’s what politics is about. It’s not about soaring speeches, and nice sound bites, it’s about delivery – actually making things better, whatever obstacles are put in your way. I’ve always tried to remember that.
As a councillor in Camden I fought for equal pay when people said it was a waste of time – but we won.
As an MP in Dulwich and West Norwood I fought for and won new schools for our community when others said we should settle for what we've got.
As a cabinet Minister I worked with David Blunkett to establish Sure Start – which has helped 100,000s of young Londoners children get a better start in life.
And in 2002 I was the Secretary of State who took the decision to bid for the Olympics in London. It wasn’t easy. Everyone was sceptical. First the department tried to talk me out of it. But I won them over.
Then the Prime Minister said he wasn’t convinced. But I talked him round. Then I convinced the cabinet.
Then – when everyone told us Paris had it in the bag - I got on a plane with the rest of the bid team and we talked the world round as well.
And we delivered the greatest Games the world has ever seen – and London was the star of the show.
The Gamesmakers, the atmosphere in our city, that sense that our home is truly the best place on earth. We all felt it.
The Olympics were a success because we had the best people doing their best work for a great cause. We need to bring that same sense to building One London today.
Every day I see another reason why I want to be the Mayor of London – another example of the things I want to change. The Housing crisis, the inequality that threatens to tear our city apart, the searing lack of opportunity that robs so many young Londoners of their potential…. So it all comes down to this.
I believe I can deliver the change that London needs.
I've always fought for Londoners, I've delivered for London before and I want to fight for the people of this city again.
My plan to build One London where we all share in our city’s success
Building the homes we need, affordable transport you can rely on, unleashing our city’s potential, real opportunity for all Londoners.
We need urgent action to tackle London’s housing crisis. As Mayor of London, I will make housing my number one priority - to finally get a grip of the housing crisis and get our city building the homes we need.
London’s transport is failing to keep pace with the dynamism of our city. If we are to build one London,
As Mayor, I will
If elected London Mayor, I'll introduce a one hour bus ticket so you can change buses without having to pay again. https://t.co/aDzfSPZPoQ— Tessa Jowell (@TessaJowell) June 16, 2015
London’s air quality is among the worst in Europe. We rank below cities such as Berlin, Amsterdam and Paris, and – internationally – our air is more polluted than cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago and Sydney. Central London in particular regularly breaches the legal limits for air pollution.
As Mayor, I will;
I want to build One London – where we all share in our city’s success. But today, too many Londoners feel like the opportunity in our city isn’t for them.
For many children and young people, London is the greatest city in the world to grow up. It is a city of huge opportunities and excitement; the best schools in the country; and real cultural vibrancy. But these experiences are not ones shared by all of London’s children and young people. This damaging divide tears at the social fabric of our city entrenching inequality for generations to come.
Despite being the nation’s richest region, London has some of the highest rates of child poverty in Britain. Nearly 4 in 10 of London’s children grow up in poverty. In some boroughs, that figure reaches close to 50 per cent. But, underlining the gulf in wealth and opportunity in our city, that figure is two-thirds lower in the capital’s most prosperous boroughs.
And too many Londoners work hard but don’t receive a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work. That has to change. Everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy the best of London.

What is your legal counselor’s trial record? According to boanlaw.com/criminal-defense/federal-crimes/, on the off chance that your attorney has never gone to trial or won’t share his positive results, that is a major warning. Most cases don’t make it to trial, however, so it is imperative that your legal advisor has genuine trial involvement in the event that yours makes it that far.
It’s your entitlement to go to trial on the off chance that you believe it’s ideal, and an attorney without broad trial experience won’t have the capacity to give powerful direction.
This one is somewhat difficult to evaluate, yet look at the legal advisor to check whether he or she is perhaps not that great. Sadly, a few legal counselors get where they are more from their kinships with different attorneys than through their capacity.
Look at the legal advisor’s experience. Did she go to a trustworthy graduate school? Does she have any expert achievements past simply being a legal counselor? Does he instruct? Or, on the other hand compose?
None of these, all alone, can ensure that the attorney is the correct one for you. A lot of good legal counselors went to less respected graduate schools and a lot of awful ones went to great schools.
However, these are contemplations that ought to be considered as you choose which legal counselor to contract.
Maybe in particular, the legal advisor you contract will be investing a great deal of energy speaking with you. She’ll converse with you about the law and about the actualities as you see them and as the administration does.
Also, the legal counselor will show your side of what happened to the legislature. When you converse with the legal counselor, does the legal advisor convey well? On the off chance that the attorney has composed anything, does it bode well?
Legal counselors are, to a limited extent, proficient communicators. Nearly anybody can assess how well a man clarifies things. Utilize your judgment.
At last, tune in to your gut. On the off chance that you have a terrible feeling about a legal counselor, on the off chance that you feel like he or she essentially wouldn’t give you much consideration, or in the event that you simply don’t care for the individual, then don’t contract him or her.
Will you invest a ton of energy with your legal counselor? Your future, your family’s future, and your flexibility is in that individual’s hands. In the event that you have a disturbing sensation that the legal counselor isn’t the correct individual, then the legal advisor isn’t the ideal individual.

Known for their long perfect coats and recognizable squeezed in confronts, it is no big surprise that Persian felines are the most prominent enlisted thoroughbreds of their species. While felines are self-groomers by nature, there are a few things you ought to do to help them keep up their appealing looks.
These imperative tips will help you take in some courses about prepping your persa feline better:
How frequently do you glimpse inside your feline’s ears? This critical wellbeing check is frequently neglected by most feline proprietors. By utilizing an ear chemical on them once every week, you can wipe out any garbage or development.
You likewise will then have the chance to search for other existing issues, for example, an ear contamination, ear vermin, or remote questions in the ear, for example, foxtails.
Consistent brushing is the most vital thing you can do to abstain from tangling, particularly with a Persian feline! Brush and brush your feline’s hair beginning at the base of the hair, close to the skin, and brushing outwards.
I generally prescribe utilizing a slicker brush initially to help evacuate any dander, flotsam, and jetsam, and free hair then completes a wide tooth brush. The brush will get any tangles or mats that a brush regularly misses.
When you run over a tangle or matt, utilize the brush to help brush it out. On the off chance that the matt is too tight you can buy — and deliberately utilize — a matt breaker to expel it. I say deliberately in light of the fact that a matt breaker can harm to a feline’s skin if utilized thoughtlessly.
Attempt to brush your Persian feline no less than three times each week and dependable brush out your feline completely before washing.
Persians have long hair, and this long hair ought to be moulded. Moulding your feline’s hair and skin will saturate the skin, hydrate the coat, and keep the hair delicate and tangle free. Ensure it is a conditioner alright for felines. Try not to utilize human conditioner.
Keeping up the length of your feline’s paws is essential. At the point when feline’s nails get too long, they are more vulnerable to stalling out on articles around the house like covers, apparel, cover, wraps, and so forth.
In the event that the nail is trapped, your feline may pull away sufficiently hard to break the nail, which can bring about dying, torment and inconvenience. You may even wind up visiting the vet contingent upon how awful the break is.
To keep away from such a disaster, utilize feline nail trimmers about at regular intervals to take the tips off of your feline’s nails.
Limiting the measure of water that enters your feline’s ear amid a shower is essential to stay away from ear diseases.
By staying a cotton ball into every ear, not very somewhere down in the ear trench, the cotton ball will retain the greater part of the water that tries to enter. Simply make sure to expel the cotton balls when you are done showering your feline!
