I fail to understand how ending an open border and trade agreement with Europe would stop properties going up being sold to people who live in the Far East.

Based on the simple facts that:
a) the Far East is not Europe, not part of EU and has nothing to do with the EU.
b) People in the Far East have been known to buy properties in other sort-after locations around the world which are not in, or never have been in the EU such as New York

One of the reasons why Crossrail was even built was to service the needs of the expanding CofL and Canary Wharf , millions have been contributed to fund it's construction. Moreso the desperately needed Rotherhithe - CW bridge , will require the next mayor of london to bring there begging bowl to fund it's cost.

Does anyone have any updates on the Atlas building on city road? That building doesn't seem to have had an update on it in a while and I'm struggling to find any updates on it in the web.

If Great Britain leaf the EU, it should be more liberal. More economic freedom, less central banking inflation, higher rates, at best an free market banking system with free market money. maybe a new sterling silver. Great britain should follow the programm of Liberalism - Cobden and Bright. If Great Britain would do that, it would the richest nation in the world. it would grow strong and the EU and the whole world would love to make free trades with great britain. Great Britain would be like Hongkong, Singapur or New Zealand.

EU is communism. If the EU would follow this points, the EU would be the richest place on earth but the EU politic is communism and the central banking system EZB destroys the markets.

The cause of the economic crisis is the policy of cheap money. Artificially low interest rates mean a culture of debt and inflation. This follow economic collapse. The profiteers of such a system speak a you that the causes are different. But that is not correct. Ludwig von Mises understood our monetary system. But the mainstream suppressed his findings.

do you think that the new mayor being Muslim will have an effect on his policies or that the accusations of tolerating extremism are plausible? I am generally pro-conservative and really concerned about the Islamic extremism in western societies, but I don't see why Khan is a bad choice if he remains unbiased and does the best for Londoners.

Mr Khan has said repeatedly throughout his campaign that he wants to be a mayor for all of London. That from that what you will.
