Gareth Edwards, the editor of London Reconnections, is one of the most astute commentators on London’s transport systems and the mysteries of Transport for London’s finances. He kindly found time to talk to On London about what he makes of the bailout and its politics. Philip Glanville is the Mayor of Hackney. He believes – like many others – that national government has failed to make the most of local authorities’ knowledge and expertise in coping with the Covid crisis and now needs to do so more than ever. And Orla Hill is one of the people I share my house with. She has some observations about not sitting her A-levels, leaving school sooner than expected, and what it’s like living in close proximity to On London HQ and other members of her family. All three of these people appear in the latest On London podcast, which you can listen to via HERE.
