Last quote about London

Kevin Chong - Investec
A lot of it is to do with the fact that we have such a high concentration of financial service players in London in such a tight geography. And fintech, unlike some of the other technology sectors, is one of those areas where you can't avoid having to partner with or have some sort of relationship with the established

McKayla Maroney

Dr. Nassar told me that I was receiving 'medically necessary treatment that he had been performing on patients for over 30 years'. It started when I was 13 years old, at one of my first National Team training camps, in Texas, and it didn't end until I left the sport. It seemed whenever and wherever this man could find the chance, I was 'treated'. It happened in London before my team and I won the gold medal, and it happened before I won my silver (in vault in London). Everyone's words over the past few days have been so inspiring to me. Not just happening in

Dara Khosrowshahi - Expedia

We will appeal this decision on behalf of millions of Londoners, but we do so with the knowledge that we must also

Lucy Greenwood - Savills

Manchester and Birmingham continue to outperform the UK average and are now joined by smaller locations such as Luton, Coventry and Chelmsford in seeing double digit annual price growth for urban

Phil Hogan

Unfortunately, we are now so close to the cliff edge of a hard Brexit that we can see the drop right in front of our feet. We have now missed the October deadline for moving to the next phase of negotiations. Only serious engagement and realism can deliver an agreement to move forward by December. It is painfully clear that the UK government is not going to propose workable solutions for the benefit of the island of Ireland, Indeed, the low priority afforded to Northern Ireland by London is disheartening, to say the

Bob Dudley - BP

Bob Dudley - BP

Renewables are clearly coming of age and yet even with the most aggressive forecasts for renewables, the world will likely be looking elsewhere to other sources of energy for the next few decades. Global demand for energy continues to grow as prosperity increases and the world population rises, giving us a dual challenge – we must meet increased energy demand while also transitioning to a low carbon

McKayla Maroney

I had a dream to go to the Olympics, and the things I had to endure to get there, were unnecessary, and disgusting. It happened in London before my team and I won the gold medal, and it happened before I won my Silver. Sure, from the outside looking in, it's an amazing story. I did it. I got there, but not without a

Sylvia Plath

Met, by the way, a brilliant ex-Cambridge poet at the wild St. Botolph's Review party last week; will probably never see him again (he works for J. Arthur Rank in London) but wrote my best poem about him afterwards: the only man I've met yet here who'd be strong enough to be equal

Mark Lamping

Similarly, we today can better appreciate how standing for 'God Save The Queen' may have been viewed negatively by our armed forces here in Jacksonville and beyond. As covered during our conversation on Thursday, this was an oversight and certainly not intended to send a message that would disparage you, our flag or our nation. The notion never entered the minds of our players or anyone affiliated with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but today we can understand how the events in London on September 24 could have been viewed or misinterpreted. We owe you an apology and hope you will accept

Paul Iganski

I think they'll continue to rise. As the Brexit negotiations become more entrenched, they're a constant reminder of the position of eastern European migrants, contributing to a climate of hostility. As we draw closer to the deadline, and as negotiations get tougher, the climate is going to get worse. And every time we have a terror attack, there'll be a backlash. Each time, it goes up a

Christine Ourmieres-Widener - Flybe Group

While half-year profits are lower than expected, I am confident that we are still on a clear sustainable path to profitability in line with our stated plan. The increased maintenance costs are disappointing, but we are already addressing these in the second half and remain focused on improving our cost base and reliability performance. Our sustainable business improvement plan is delivering benefits with the fleet size now reducing, and consequently both yield and load factors are

Amber Rudd

There is absolutely no place for hate crime in our society and this Government is taking action to tackle it. I am heartened that that more victims are more confident to come forward and report incidents of hate crime, and that police identification and recording of all crime is improving. But no-one in Britain should have to suffer violent prejudice, and indications that there was a genuine rise in the number of offences immediately following each of this year's terror attacks is undoubtedly

Tim Loughton

Jeremy Corbyn

So, I say to her, Labour will help you keep your promise. Bring forward a bill to update the act and improve trans rights and Labour will back you. You can give your MPs and the DUP a free vote and Labour will make it

Jeremy Corbyn

Discrimination has gone on too long. The Gender Recognition Act does not allow trans people to self-identify their gender and forces them to undergo invasive medical tests. This is wrong. Labour recognised this in our manifesto, pledging to update the act. Theresa May told Pink News that 'changes need to be made' but failed to include anything on this in the Conservative

Stephen Jones

We detect some degree of political will in certain parts of continental Europe in order to reclaim what they perceive to be 20 years loss of wholesale financial services to the London market. It's a very short-sighted approach to negotiations, but I recognise that in certain markets it's the political

Joseph Harker

Every day millions of internet users ask Google life’s most difficult questions, big and small. Our writers answer some of the commonest queries. “Diversity” has become a buzzword over the past two decades. But what does it mean and why is it necessary? To understand how we got here, and where we might go next, it’s worth a look

It bears repeating that we were in remiss in not fully comprehending the effect of the national anthem demonstration occurring on foreign soil has had on the men and women who have or continue to serve our country. Similarly, we today can better appreciate how standing for 'God Save The Queen' may have been viewed negatively by our armed forces here in Jacksonville and

Michael Ellis - Michelin Group

We have Indian stars in different parts of the world – in London, of course, in China and Hong Kong. We have to find it on the same level. Rasika is very good. We couldn't confirm a star this year, but it's very much on our radar. We did not have the resources to go beyond the areas we covered last year. I think as time goes on we'll be able to do that. We only have so many boots on the ground in terms of the inspection

This is two-speed Britain in action. It's now clear that great swathes of the UK have suffered terribly in the aftermath of the financial crash while areas in high demand have shrugged it off and surged

Hansen Lu - Capital Economics

With annual house price growth on the other main house price indices coming in at 2pc to 4pc, the official index still looks to be an outlier. House price movements in London tend to lead the rest of the market. That, alongside the already high level of prices across the country, weak new buyer inquiries and probable interest rate rises, suggests that a resurgence in house price growth is

Silvana Tenreyro

My view is that we are approaching a tipping pint at which it would be necessary or justified to remove some of that stimulus. So my position now is that if the data out-turns are consistent with the picture I just described of an outward gap going towards zero, then I'd be minded to vote for a Bank Rate increase in the coming months. However that is very contingent on the

John Goodall

It is essential that the Government doesn't lose focus on addressing the housing crisis and makes good on its promise to build the thousands of new, affordable homes that people desperately need. Fast approaching, next month's Autumn Budget will be a chance for the Chancellor to reassure the industry on these plans and, I hope, address some further urgent matters. Investment and planning in the areas where rental and house price growth is reaching particularly unsustainable levels, like the East of England, will be

Richard Snook - PricewaterhouseCoopers

The uncertainty over Brexit may be felt more keenly in London than other areas, due to the importance of international businesses. Figures from the City of London borough bear this out, where prices are down 18.4% compared to a year

Steve Clayton

Katie Heller

When Grenfell happened, like everyone, I was totally incensed and upset and wanted to be able to do something. The best way I could personally help was to put together a charity

Janet Davies

These experienced professionals cover everything from breastfeeding support to spotting children who may be at risk of abuse. But they are now bearing the brunt of Government cuts and the health and wellbeing of our children is in jeopardy. Poor health in childhood has a detrimental impact in later life. The UK is falling even further behind our European neighbours too. Ministers must ensure local councils have the funding to give every child the best start in life and not undermine progress made in the last

Peter Sheehan

Peter Sheehan

Having someone to manage residents' experiences is the new normal in New York. Residents at 525 are mainly singles and couples who are making their mark in the world before starting families. They could absolutely afford to buy, but prices are higher than ever and they're watching the market just as they watch their

Karen Boswell - Hitachi Rail Europe

We, at Hitachi Rail, are really proud to have built trains in the UK, designed using Japanese bullet train technology, that are improving passengers' journeys on the Great Western route. Nine years of hard work has gone into making this vital fleet upgrade happen, including creating a brand new factory, workforce, and establishing modern maintenance facilities from Swansea to London. We've delivered pioneering 21st century trains for passengers to enjoy and sparked a manufacturing renaissance in the North

José Mourinho - Manchester United

The only thing I will say is that I am still a coach with concerns, with ambitions and with the desire to do new things. I am sure that I will not finish my career here (at Manchester United). My son, who lives in London, went to Paris to watch a Paris Saint-Germain match instead of Manchester. Why Paris? Because they have something special. Magic, quality and youth. It is

Jeremy Corbyn

She was late for the Woman's Hour start time of two minutes past 10am. Not her fault, but minders underestimating London traffic ….

Johnny Morris

Rental price growth continues to be supported by the low number of landlord purchases, particularly across the south of England. The number of rental homes on the market has continued to drop with more southern based landlords looking northwards in search of better yields and lower stamp duty bills. Conversely northern England has seen double digit increases in the number of homes on the market which is likely to temper rental

Dany Cotton

The first woman firefighter joined London Fire Brigade in 1982 and it's ridiculous that 35 years later people are still surprised to see women firefighters or calling them firemen. London is a complex and challenging city and it takes a diverse selection of skills, strengths and specialisms to protect it - qualities that both men and women

Dany Cotton

We owe it to tomorrow's firefighters to challenge negative stereotypes

Sadiq Khan

Our firefighters do one of the most important jobs there is - helping to keep the rest of us safe - regardless of gender or background. Their heroic response in tackling this year's deadly terrorist attacks and the Grenfell Tower tragedy is only a small proportion of their tireless work to protect and support all of our

This is about providing an option for older people currently living in London who want to stay in London. It is a myth that everyone wants to move to the country as they get older and our own research has shown us that many people want to stay in the same

Sarah Ghaffari

Complexity favours the rich who can afford to take expensive advice, adds to the cost of every transaction and only discourages us from saving. It makes us resent paying taxes and in the long run it almost certainly makes us less

The problem lies with the unknown. No dose of non-naturally occurring radiation is safe. What we have here is big business trampling over Wales, with a Welsh government doffing its cap to London and the nuclear industry. The Welsh national interest is not being served here.

We are continuing to see evidence of shortage of stock both in the new build and second-hand market. Against such a backdrop, prices in general are likely to remain elevated and indeed, as the survey indicates, continue to rise over the medium term in most parts of the country. In part, this is a reflection of affordability constraints hitting the higher priced segments of the market. It is perhaps also indicative of a shift in economic momentum in the face of the increasing possibility of the first hike in base rates in over ten

Space is always the most sought-after commodity when house hunting, but it's important to remember that the cost of an extension won't always translate into the same monetary value for the property as a whole. In a major city where space is tight a loft extension can add real value, but outside of the city where there is an abundance of space, this isn't always the case. it's important to consider this before committing to the work and then price according to the market and not what you think your house is

One million EU citizens live and work in London. The NHS has 13,000 staff from Ireland; 8,000 Poles, 7,500 Spaniards, 6,000 Italians. London's hospitals have more EU-born staff than any other English region. If even some decide to leave, both our health and wealth will

Sadiq Khan

The Government's long-term position on access to talent remains vague. And that's putting it kindly. But what's clear is that one of the Government's primary motivations is to come out the other end looking 'tough on immigration'. This approach risks putting short-term politics ahead of our economic stability - something that would not only lead to enormous consequences for the livelihoods of millions of people. But would go down as one of the most severe, irresponsible and selfish mistakes by any political party in

It's still like no other place I've ever been. This density of buildings, of people, everything. Some people really love Paris. Some people love London, they'll read everything that Dickens wrote. I sometimes feel that way about New York. There's something about the city, not the least of which is that it's on a grid, so I don't get lost. And I don't need to drive. I hate driving. This is almost like being in nature to me, looking at the buildings and noticing the little
