It's the people who live and work here who run London.

7.5 million Londoners - one great cityThere are over 7.5 million of us in London with more arriving every year. Together we make the city and it’s the things we do and don’t do that determine, more than anything or anyone else, how well our city is run.
- Things like the way we behave with each other from day to day – simple civility during the rush hour crush, for example.
- Things like playing a part in our communities – from taking the time to say hello to our neighbours to volunteering.
- Things like having your say and suggesting improvements locally and Londonwide, for example through the public meetings the Mayor holds every year.
- Things like voting for the Mayor and London Assembly, holding them to account, and standing as a candidate – all in support of our collective aim to change London for the better and make it the greatest city in the world.
I am planning on attempting to view the blueprints/plans of the London underground and develop ideas around the idea of flow through the underground corridors of London. This idea came from being told about a sketch by Mark Thomas, who went and got the plans for the MI6 building in London, and then proceeded to go in and ask about what the building was. They would not say, but everyone he asked on the street outside seemed to know it was the MI6 building anyway. Amusing tactics.
