It has been almost a fortnight since the European referendum and the result is still being hotly debated, but we must respect that the people have spoken across the United Kingdom and voted against remaining a part of the European Union.
One of the more encouraging sights in the past couple of weeks was that of the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Mayor of London welcoming leaders and young people of all faiths for a celebratory iftar at Lambeth Palace.
For more than 150 years, east London has been shaped by railways. High Speed 1 made it possible to host the 2012 Olympics at Stratford. We can all see the big changes now under way there.

Like so many others, last night was an emotional one for my family, as the lights finally went out at the Boleyn for the very last time. The Boleyn has given me and my family so many memories to treasure over the past 60 years.
Tomorrow morning at 7am polling stations will be opening across the borough. I hope you, like me, will be voting in the Mayor of London elections and for who you want to represent us on the London Assembly.
The NHS affects us all - that’s why it’s always in the news! Whether for amazing life-saving procedures, care that goes beyond the call of duty, for financial difficulties or when things go tragically wrong. Equally as a service that cares for more than one million patients every 36 hours everyone has their own opinion on how it could be better.

Over Easter, the Panama Papers revealed the worst excesses of the super-rich. Most media attention was on the Prime Minister’s overseas tax affairs. The ‘did he or didn’t he’ benefit from shoddy tax avoidance practices left a bad taste in our mouths.
