Ken and green housing
Look out, housing associations! Or, as may be, look out, people in need of affordable housing!

Ken got so bowled over by being next to Bill Clinton that he said that he won't fund any more 'polluting public sector homes', ever. That is to say, when he gets control of London's housing budget (set to be approved by Parliament soon) he is going to demand new homes that are as near carbon-neutral as possible.

"I intend to bring the architects and the housing association people in and say we're not going to allocate that money to any new home for construction that isn't absolutely state of the art. If you want a commitment from me at this conference it's that that three billion dollars won't subsidise another polluting public sector home in London."
