As Mayor of London Mr Khan has failed in his promises made in the elections in 2016. 

Since he assumed office in 2016

- Trees and lower Pollution

Promise: “plant two million trees by 2020”

Reality: “No tree planting has been funded since the beginning of this administration”. Central London and the outskirts would be recognised as a Low emission zone with ONLY congestion zone being know as a new Ultra Low Emission Zone from April 2019. 

Now plans are in place to make an extension to the ULEZ by 2021, meaning people on lower incomes will not be able to have a car or travel in one as they will not be able to afford their cars to simply be parked outside their own homes. 

People will be forced to call emergency services to visit hospitals where they would normally use their car. This will be mean that emergency services will be struggling to cope with such high number of calls.

High unemployment rate - companies will close as they will not be able to afford new vehicles, some already closing, some loosing contracts in central london and others deciding wether its viable to stay afloat.

- Travel Costs

Promise: ‘I want to be crystal clear – no ifs, no buts – what you’ll pay if I’m elected Mayor in May 2016 is what you’ll pay at the end of my 4 years in office’

Reality: Daily and weekly caps are rising by an average of 2%, Travelcard season ticket prices are rising by an average of 2%

- Affordable Housing

Promise: “Sadiq will set a target for 50 per cent of all new homes in London to be genuinely affordable.”

Reality: His new policy is that he hopes to convince developers to voluntarily meet a target of 35% affordable housing.

- Police

Promise: 32,000 police officers on London’s streets.

Reality: Now only committing enough funds to maintain force’s current strength. Knife crime on all time high and demand for more Police on the street is severely high.

 

As someone who says he is from the people and for the people because he lived in and surrounded by low income. I am personally dissappinted in you!
