We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Sadiq Khan is associated, including Londoners and Britain. Most recently, Sadiq Khan has been quoted saying: “The funding gap is now at over £70m and it appears unlikely that the trust will succeed in raising the private funds required for the project. I am simply not prepared to risk a situation where the taxpayer has to step in and contribute significant additional amounts to ensure the project is completed. Pledged funds being lower than two years ago strongly suggests that support for the project is not robust enough to generate the required funds.” in the article Garden bridge across Thames scrapped by Sadiq Khan.

Sadiq Khan quotes

I am very much looking forward to working with her to keep our capital safe and protected.feedback

On Friday, a 17-year-old man suffered horrific injuries in a brutal attack in Croydon, which is being treated as a hate crime. Hate crime has no place in London, Britain or anywhere else. London is an amazingly diverse city. We don't just accept our differences, we embrace and celebrate them. Our communities will not be divided by those who seek to sow hate. And we will always take a zero-tolerance approach to hate crimes of any type. Anyone who witnesses a hate crime should report it to the police immediately.feedback

This statue is also a tribute to [Caroline] and a testament to what one woman can achieve on behalf of all women.feedback

This new scheme will put an end to the 'smoke and mirrors' that has been employed and provide Londoners and Parisians with an honest, accurate and independent evaluation of the emissions of vehicles on our road.feedback

What we don't want to happen is businesses leaving London and leaving Europe and going to New York, Singapore and Hong Kong, or even Seoul. And so, I'm keen to keep the businesses we have. London is open. It's not simply open to business and talent, and to trade, it's also state of mind. It's open-minded, outward-looking.feedback

The truth is that London will always remain a key partner for Brussels and every European nation long after Brexit is resolved. I see no evidence during the meetings this morning and yesterday of any wish on the part of the European Union to punish the UK or our citizens for the position taken last June.feedback

Part and parcel of living in a great global city is you've got to be prepared for these things, you've got to be vigilant, you've got to support the police doing an incredibly hard job. We must never accept terrorists being successful, we must never accept that terrorists can destroy our life or destroy the way we lead our lives.feedback

Parliament Square is one of our capital's treasures and it's only right that we consider making it more accessible and appealing to Londoners and visitors alike. We've seen the positive impact that part-pedestrianisation has had on Trafalgar Square, and I have long spoken about my wish to see something similar at Parliament Square.feedback

I am committed to ensuring we work closely with Westminster City Council and the Parliamentary authorities to design and install a scheme which provides the best safety and security that can possibly be achieved for the Palace of Westminster as well as for visitors, Londoners and tourists. Plans are already in development for part-pedestrianisation and we will of course take into account any new security advice that may be given.feedback

This attack on our way of life, this attack on our shared values, shows the world what it means to be a Londoner. Londoners will never by cowed by terrorism.feedback

Like most people who are successful in their jobs, they have to give notice to their current employer. You'll appreciate the job she does with the Foreign Office. She's got to make sure she serves out her notice – it has been reduced. She's already been doing lots of work. Even though she's not begun being paid, that shows how professional she is.feedback

Those evil and twisted individuals who try to destroy our shared way of life will never succeed and we condemn them. Our hearts are with the family and friends of PC Keith Palmer, of Aysha Frade, of Kurt Cochran, and all those injured in the attack yesterday.feedback

Nothing is more important to me than keeping Londoners safe. I want to be reassured that every single agency and individual involved in protecting our city has the resources and expertise they need to respond in the event that London is attacked.feedback

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.feedback

London is a city that's been resilient in the face of terror attacks in the past. People are returning to work today … we're not going to allow a terrorist to divide our communities or change our way of life.feedback

Part and parcel of living in a great global city is you've got to be prepared for these things, you've got to be vigilant, you've got to support the police doing an incredibly hard job. The terrorists are evolving their tactics and we have got to evolve our response to them all the time. I am afraid the consequences of a terror attack are very, very scary. They want to kill. They want to maim and terrify. It is my job to try to make sure that we are as safe as we can be.feedback

The Mayor invites all Londoners – and everyone visiting our city – to come together in solidarity to remember those who have lost their lives, to express sympathy with their families and loved ones and to show the world that we are more committed than ever to the values that we hold dear – that we remain united and open. London is the greatest city in the world. We will never be cowed by terrorism. We stand together, in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

While every country has the right to set its own immigration policies, this new policy flies in the face of the values of freedom and tolerance that the USA was built upon.feedback

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.feedback

I've not had it articulated to me by the universities any excitement. They're worried about less collaboration; they're worried about losing some of the research funds.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Why strike? Why not resolve these things amicably?feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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

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

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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

We're in discussions about MLB and we want MLB to come to London. What we're discussing with Major League Baseball is for them to come here during the summer, which works for us for obvious reasons. They are very excited.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

On behalf of all Londoners, I am demanding more autonomy for the capital - right now.feedback

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.feedback

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! But on behalf of all Londoners, I am demanding more autonomy for the capital – right now. 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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Fear does not make us safer. It only makes us weaker. And the politics of fear is simply not welcome in our city.feedback
