Description

Born and raised in Tooting, he began his career as a human rights lawyer before being elected to parliament in 2005. In the book I try to explain the seven obstacles I’ve faced and how I’ve overcome them – apathy (“it doesn’t concern me”), fatalism (“there’s nothing we can do”), cynicism (“politicians are all the same”), deprioritisation (“other things more important”), hostility (opposition from a vocal minority), costs and gridlock. Khan cleverly organises the book into the attitudes-or obstacles- to issues like air pollution that are viewed and displayed- from Fatalism and Apathy, through Deprioritisation and Hostility and Cost and bookends the text with the story of Ella Kissi-Debrah, who is the first person in the UK to have air pollution listed as a cause of death.

Then there’s a little childhood whimsy from Brambly Hedge by Jill Barklem, and, to round off the list, the young adult fantasy The Language of Spells by Garret Weyr. The cloakroom opens about an hour before ticketed events, and closes around 15 minutes after the performance ends. Motivated by the idea that if Ed Balls can do it, so could he, Khan takes up the challenge of entering the London marathon, kickstarting a chain of events spanning his reinvention as mayor (ending City Hall’s Johnsonian blue patch) and rebirth as a green evangelist.Perhaps it’s because London’s residents had seen the consequences of such policies following COVID-19 and were giving them the thumbs-down.

He always assesses the impact of his climate policies and records that, ‘The proportion of bicycle and walking journeys had increased from 29 per cent pre-pandemic to an estimated 46 per cent post lockdown. I’ve also just finished Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus, a book it seems that everyone is talking about right now.Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall). Kuang has penned a dark and magnetising satire that takes a magnifying glass to an industry that has always appeared amorphous and opaque to the majority but, in Yellowface, we see it all (though mostly the bad and ugly). Why would Hillingdon be his favourite when it is Conservative-controlled, has thankfully not installed any LTNs, has challenged the ULEZ, voted to leave the EU, includes Boris Johnson’s constituency and its postal addresses are entirely Middlesex? But it’s Rosamund, the mum of Ella Kissi-Debrah – a nine-year-old girl who became the first person in the UK to have “air pollution” recorded as a cause of death on her death certificate – who has the biggest impact, refocusing Khan to prioritise the climate agenda.

For Khan, the opposite is true – since the people in these communities are most at risk from the harms of air pollution, he argues that his efforts to tackle the problem are driven by a commitment to improve their lives, as he explained during his recent appearance at the LSE Festival. Now he portrays himself as an accomplished and pragmatic statesman who has harnessed London’s power to advance the climate agenda. And yet here I was in Glasgow Royal Infirmary, half of my body in suit trousers and the other in a hospital gown, waiting to be told if I was going to be admitted for urgent treatment. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. When Athena dies in a freak accident, June steals her unpublished manuscript and publishes it, parading it as her own.
