Members of Parliament (MP)
A Member of Parliament (MP) is the person elected by all those who live in a particular area (constituency) to represent them in the House of Commons. MPs have regular surgeries where you raise issues with them in person (regardless of whether you voted for them or not). The basic annual salary of a Member of Parliament (MP) in the House of Commons is £84,144, as of April 2022. In addition, MPs are able to claim allowances to cover the costs of running an office and employing staff, and maintaining a constituency residence or a residence in London.

Led by Donkeys
Political campaign group, established in December 2018 as an anti-Brexit group, but which has also criticised other actions of Boris Johnson's government. Since the group's creation, its four founders have been calling out what they call "thermonuclear hypocrisy" and used satire targeted at pro-Brexit politicians. Led By Donkeys' main campaign consists of billboards containing past tweets by pro-Brexit politicians or quotes presented as tweets.

Local government (your councillors)
Local government is responsible for a range of vital services for people and businesses in defined areas. These include social care, schools, housing and planning and waste collection but also lesser known: licensing, business support, registrar services and pest control. Local councils, which is the most common type of local authority, are made up of councillors who are elected by the public in local elections. For example, Greater London is divided into 32 Boroughs (each managed by a Council). Each Borough is divided up into areas called wards which have three Councillors who are elected every four years. Councillors work with local people and partners, such as local businesses and other organisations, to agree and deliver on local priorities. Councillors have regular surgeries where you raise issues with them in person (regardless of whether you voted for them or not). The decisions are implemented by permanent council staff (council officers) who deliver services day-to-day. The basic allowance paid to every councillor of £11,045. Updated for the local government staff pay awards since then (and including an indicative 1.75% award for 2021-22, which is still the subject of negotiation), the figure is now £12,014.

Greater London Assembly (GLA)
The Greater London Authority - also known as "City Hall" - is the devolved regional governance body of Greater London. It consists of two political branches: the executive Mayoralty and the 25-member London Assembly, which serves as a means of checks and balances on the former. Until the end of 2021, the Mayor and Assembly Members used to meet at City Hall (110 The Queen's Walk, London, SE1). City Hall has now relocated to The Crystal (Royal Victoria Docks, London E16). One important element of the GLA Act is to determine the seven 'statutory' London strategies the Mayor must publish. They are strategies for the Environment, Spatial Development (the London Plan), Transport, Economic Development, Housing, Culture, and Health Inequalities.

Mayor of London
The Mayor (currently Sadiq Khan) is the chief executive of the Greater London Authority, providing citywide leadership and creating priorities and policies to improve life for Londoners. The Mayor’s salary is £152,734.
