Most kids don’t get to go their parents’ wedding.
I’m in exactly the same position as everybody else who has a small business. I mean I get loads of money all from different sources. You give it to your accountant. They manage it.
I was a weedy kid not like one of those working-class men who can accommodate not being academically clever by physical strength and prowess.
I undertake that in the exercise of my functions of that office I will have regard to any guidance with respect to ethical standards issued by the secretary of state under Section 66 of the Greater London Authority Act 1999.
I do the gardening.
I do explicitly see Jewish people as a people – not either a religion or an ethnicity but a people.
I came into politics because I wished to change things. You can’t do that by lying to people you have to educate and persuade and carry them with you – and it’s often a long haul.
I loathe and detest all this trivialisation of politics.
Politics is not a healthy lifestyle.
Short of being prime minister there isn’t a better job in British politics than running London.
