Sadiq Khan quotes

I'm not going to respond to a tweet from Donald Trump Jr. I've been doing far more important things over the past 24 hours.

My heart goes out to the those who have lost loved ones and those affected by today's attack. Tragically a Metropolitan police officer who was doing his job to keep our city safe lost his life and my thoughts are with his family. On behalf of Londoners, I want to thank the police and the emergency services, who work incredibly hard in difficult circumstances to keep us safe. My message to those who want to harm us and destroy our way of life is: you won't succeed. You won't divide us, we won't be cowed by terrorists.

The reason terrorists want to attack London is because they hate the fact that we don't just tolerate each other – whether you're a Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, member of an organised faith or not – we respect, embrace and celebrate each other and that's going to carry on.

That means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities, it means the security services being ready, but it also means exchanging ideas and best practice.

Our city remains one of the safest in the world. London is the greatest city in the world and we stand together in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life.

I want to reassure all Londoners and all our visitors not to be alarmed – our city remains one of the safest in the world. Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism.

I want to reassure all Londoners and all our visitors not to be alarmed. Our city remains one of the safest in the world. London is the greatest city in the world. And we stand together in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life. We always have and we always will.

I agree that the mice have been causing a nuisance in City Hall. However, I am informed by City Hall's Facilities Management (FM) team that the mouse problem is now improving, with a 50 per cent reduction in sightings reported in the last quarter thanks to an enhanced and rigorous pest control regime.

Drivers being able to speak English and understand information from passengers and licensing requirements is a vital part of ensuring passengers get the high standard of service they need and deserve.

From my first day at City Hall, I have been determined to drive up standards and improve safety for every taxi and private hire passenger travelling in London. TfL will of course look at the High Court judgment in detail to ensure all our policies fully comply, as we continue to work to improve standards and passenger safety across London's private hire and taxi services.

It's staggering that we live in a city where the air is so toxic that many of our children are growing up with lung problems. If we don't make drastic changes now we won't be protecting the health of our families in the future. The T-Charge is a vital step in tackling the dirtiest diesels before I introduce the world's first Ultra Low Emission Zone as early as 2019.

We must now rescind the offer of a full state visit for President Trump – until this ban is lifted. I don't believe the people of London will support rolling out the red carpet until this happens.

I am quite clear, this ban is cruel, this ban is shameful, while this ban is in place we should not be rolling out the red carpet for President Trump.

This is the highest level of alert and everyone - from the most vulnerable to the physically fit - may need to take precautions to protect themselves from the filthy air.

Why strike? Why not resolve these things amicably?

My message to the unions is clear: it is not too late to cancel this strike and get back around the negotiating table for the sake of all Londoners. I have instructed Transport for London to continue negotiating and we will be available all weekend to try and resolve this dispute.

We've got to abide by the results and make sure Brexit works for the fashion industry and for our country too. They want to make sure we can continue to attract talent.

Securing privileged access to the single market, maintaining a world-class financial sector and ensuring London can continue to attract global talent are all recurring themes from my conversations with business.

Making cycling safe and easier can provide huge benefits for us all – improving our health, cleaning up our toxic air, and helping tackle congestion.

I'm implementing hard-hitting measures to clean-up London's toxic air.

The problem with a 'hard Brexit' is there aren't any winners. A 'hard Brexit' is no good for London and the U.K., and is no good for the EU.

I will continue to challenge this decision and I am exploring how I can best be involved in any legal process over the coming months.

The government are running roughshod over Londoners' views - just five months ago I was elected as Mayor on a clear platform of opposing a new runway at Heathrow. I will continue to challenge this decision and I am exploring how I can best be involved in any legal process over the coming months.

There are people who want to divide our communities, there are people who want to turn Hindus against Sikhs, Muslims against Christians, Jews against Jains. Are we going to allow them? Are we going to allow them? You know, I think diversity is a strength. We don't just tolerate each other's differences, we embrace them.

It's clear we need to better understand the different roles that overseas money plays in London's housing market, the scale of what's going on, and what action we can take to support development and help Londoners find a home. That's why we are commissioning the most thorough research on this matter ever undertaken in Britain - the biggest look of its kind at this issue - so we can figure out exactly what can be done.

It is a further sign that London is open to the biggest brands in the world and the leading city for trade and investment.

We have to recognize that what these terrorists hate about us is our way of life. We respect each other. We embrace each other. We celebrate each other.

The taxi trade is an icon of our city and should be supported. While the legitimate private hire trade is an asset to London, we must not be complacent in ensuring it is safe for passengers. The need for greater enforcement and compliance, as well as stricter entry requirements, is clear for all to see.

I don't think it's right. One of the joys of London is that we don't simply tolerate difference, we respect it, we embrace it.

If you're working hard in Central London as a nurse, a doctor, as a porter, as a security guard, you can get back home quickly. If you need to get to work in the night time you can get there quickly. But also if you've had a great night out at the theatre or at a gig or at a restaurant you don't have to worry about the last tube.

The safety of all Londoners is my number one priority and my heart goes out to the victims of the incident in Russell Square and their loved ones.

We all have a vital role to play as eyes and ears for our police and security services and in helping to ensure London is protected.

London has to take back control too. Londoners, who voted for a different path to the rest of England, need more self-determination. We need to control our own destiny.

As much as I might like the idea of a London city state, I'm not seriously talking about independence today. I am not planning to install border points on the M25!

More autonomy in order to protect London's economy from the uncertainty ahead, to protect the businesses from around the world who trade here and to protect our jobs, wealth and prosperity.

My message to Londoners who are European is: you're welcome here. We're going to carry on being the greatest city in the world, being open-minded and outward-looking.

We all have a responsibility to now seek to heal the divisions that have emerged throughout this campaign – and to focus on what unites us, rather than that which divides us.

You are welcome here. We value the enormous contribution you make to our city and that will not change as a result of this referendum.

The Night Tube is absolutely vital to my plans to support and grow London's night-time economy, creating more jobs and opportunities for all Londoners.

Donald Trump's ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe – it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of the extremists.

Sadiq has spent his whole life fighting extremism, but Trump's remarks make that fight much harder for us all – it plays straight into the extremists' hands and makes both our countries less safe.

Donald Trump's ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe - it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of the extremists.

This election was not without controversy, and I am so proud that London has today chosen hope over fear and unity over division. politics of fear is not welcome in our city.
