Boris Johnson and George Osbourne launch six-point plan to improve London

George Osbourne and Boris Johnson have written a column in the Evening Standard today outlining their six-point plan to “secure London’s strong economic future.” 

The two hope to outpace the growth of New York’s economy and add £6.4 billion to the London economy by 2030, the equivalent of £600 per person. 

Londoner’s may be most please to know that the Piccadilly, Victoria, Central, Jubilee and Northern lines are due to begin running a 24-hour service on the weekend. 

Night-time services are expected on most lines by 2021. 

The plans also would mean more power for the Mayor. Broadcaster and comedian Gavin Inskip joined the Evening News to discuss the announcement and to explain why he's a little sceptical of the plans, especially this close to the General Election.
