Richmond Park MP will run for London Mayor

That’s after the Richmond Park MP’s constituents backed him running, after he balloted them asking for their permission for him to run.

79% of those who responded supported his plans, but the ballot wasn’t free of controversy, with some residents claiming they didn’t receive it.

Mr Goldsmith has given this statement:

I am hugely grateful to the residents of Richmond Park and North Kingston for taking part in the ballot, and am overwhelmed by the mandate they have given me to run for Mayor.

For five years I have campaigned hard on the issues that matter to my constituents, whether fighting to stop Heathrow expansion, pressing for free parking to help our small shops, stopping plans to charge people for enjoying Richmond Park, or campaigning to give voters more power over their MPs. I have seen how a campaigning MP can make a real difference.

Boris has shown what a strong, campaigning Mayor can achieve for the whole of London. He has secured investment, created jobs, made our streets safer and much more. On his watch, London has become the world's greatest city with all the benefits that brings.

We need to continue to build on that progress, making sure London works for all Londoners. That means bearing down on unsustainable rents and helping more Londoners own their own home; continuing to improve and grow our transport system to cut delays and deliver value for money for commuters; promoting a healthier living environment for London families.

It means working closely with Government to ensure Londoners get a fair deal and standing up to Government when we don’t.

Having just been given the green light to run by my constituents, I have a lot of work to do to earn selection as the Conservative Party candidate for Mayor. I will work tirelessly to repay my constituents’ loyalty and to gain the trust of Londoners so we can make London an even greater and more liveable city.

Claims Heathrow expansion could cost millions more than estimated
There are claims Heathrow’s plans for a third runway would cost £500million more than estimated.

That’s because of the amount of potentially contaminated landfill that would have to be treated, according to a report commissioned by the airport’s rival, Gatwick.

The report, from environmental consultancy RSK Group, has been submitted to the Airports Commission.

The commission is expected to announce this month which of the two airports it favours for expansion.

Could former Wimbledon champion be behind high property prices?
Former Wimbledon champion Boris Becker says he may have helped raise property prices near the scene of one of his most famous tennis triumphs.

The German star won the title at the All-England club when he was just 17 and he currently lives in a mansion nearby.

In his memoir, he says people have told him he’s raised property prices by living there, although he admits he’s unsure if it’s true.

But estate agents say property prices are more to do with good schools, green spaces and excellent transport links.

TripAdvisor apologises after deleting negative country house reviews
The world’s largest travel website TripAdvisor has apologised after it deleted negative reviews of a country house because employees asked it to.

TripAdvisor has admitted at least one post ‘in error’, after claiming they broke guidelines that they must reflect genuine first-hand experiences.

The scandal emerged last week after some visitors to Wakehurst Place, a National Trust estate in West Sussex, noticed that negative comments were disappearing from the site.

It’s since been revealed that reviews the country estate, run by Kew Gardens, were deleted after a request from the media team at Kew.

But this has led to some reviewers saying TripAdvisor has wrongly accused them of lying.

Reigate MP speaks on IS
One of Britain's most senior Muslim politicians has attacked comments the Prime Minister made about radicalisation on Friday.

Conservative Baroness Warsi claims it was 'ill-advised' of David Cameron to suggest some Muslims 'quietly condone' extremism.

He called on them to 'play their part' in helping tackle it.

People with disabilities spend 550-pounds EXTRA a month
It's estimated disabled people spend 550-pounds EXTRA a month on everyday living costs.
