As well as scrutinising the Mayor's decisions and policies, we also suggest better alternatives. By writing and publishing reports we aim to highlight ways to improve London within all the areas under the Mayor's control.

Derailed: Getting London's Transport Back On Track

September 2020 | Keith Prince AM

TfL is facing an existential crisis. Steady as she goes will not work. There is an undoubted need for the Mayor and TfL to be bold, to recognise and correct past mistakes and to swiftly adapt to the new normal. This report examines some of the most pressing issues facing London’s transport provision, analyses the response to the crisis from the Mayor and TfL, and provides recommendations on lessons to learn and future operations. 


Bridging The Gap: Tackling Transport Inequality South Of The River

March 2020 | Andrew Boff AM

This report seeks to explore the problems Londoners face when using London’s transport network South of the River and makes recommendations to the Mayor for how he can improve the situation. South London has historically been at a disadvantage in terms of public transport and it is about time this issue was brought forward and the Mayor take some action to right this inequality.

Policing: Keeping It Special

February 2020 | Keith Prince AM

The special constabulary has been in decline for several years. At the same time, we have seen decreases in the number of police officers, an increase in crime, and the emergence and growth of more complicated criminal activity. By utilising and growing the special constabulary, the MPS can create a larger and more dynamic workforce to serve the needs of Londoners.


Charity Begins At Home

January 2020 | Steve O'Connell AM

While some charities continue to encourage the export of street dogs from Romania and other countries and the financing of shelters and veterinary fees in those countries, they may be encouraging the proliferation of such dogs and their suffering rather than attacking the root cause. It might be better to concentrate on schemes tackling the problem with longer-term in-country operations concentrating on neutering programmes and other tactics designed to prevent the problem arising in the first place.


High Speed Fail: An Alternative Plan To HS2

September 2019 | Tony Arbour AM

This report focuses on why the Mayor would be wrong to try and introduce road pricing to London. It underlines why such a policy would be unfair on poorer Londoners and unfair on Outer Londoners, and it looks at what we can learn from the problems that have already become apparent with regard to 2021’s planned Ultra-Low Emission Zone extension to the North and South Circulars.
