Nearly half of Londoners say Sadiq Khan is doing ‘too little’ to help them through cost-of-living crisis, poll shows
- A YouGov poll found that 49% of Londoners think the mayor is doing ‘too little’
- Some attacked Khan’s cost of living fund, saying Ulez will deepen the crisis
Sadiq Khan is not doing enough to help Londoners struggling with the cost of living, voters in the capital say.
The mayor is doing ‘too little’ to deal with the crisis, according to 49 per cent of those polled in a YouGov poll – including more than half of those who supported Labor in the last general election.
Only 11 per cent think Mr Khan is doing the right amount, while four per cent say he is doing too much.
More than a third don’t know, despite Mr Khan boasting in September of ‘£80 million in initiatives to tackle the impact of the cost of living and energy bill crisis’.

Conservatives from the Greater London Authority said the expansion of Ulez later this year will deepen the crisis
Last night, Conservatives from the Greater London Authority said the mayor’s cost-of-living fund was badly targeted, saying Ulez’s expansion later this year will deepen the crisis.
The Ultra Low Emission Zone is designed to keep older vehicles out of London.
Today Mr Khan is hosting a ‘bold discussion’ about the cost of living with money-saving expert Martin Lewis.
But Neil Garratt of the GLC Tories said, “This out-of-touch mayor is only making things worse.”
