London politics isn’t just about the funny antics of a mop-topped fop, it’s cycling, buses, and the tube; it’s who runs the police; it’s what’s built where; it’s a hundred different decisions every day that affect Londoners made by an army of people that most of us would never recognise — until now.

The Scoop’s weekly London politics newsletter will enlighten and infuriate you and maybe, just maybe, inform you. But more likely just infuriate you. It’s edited by Adam Bienkov and Darryl Chamberlain, so you know that you’re getting the straight goods.
