Sadiq Khan created a housing manifesto while on the campaign trail. Its support of affordable housing would be unique on this side of the pond.

As the BBC and many other media outlets reported, Sadiq Khan was recently elected the new mayor of London. Mayor Khan is the city's first Muslim mayor, and will represent the Labour party in office.

For some additional background on the platform that got Mayor Khan elected, his campaign helpfully created a housing manifesto and posted it online. The "Homes for Londoners" report, as the manifesto is titled, describes the city's housing crisis as "the single biggest barrier to prosperity, growth and fairness facing Londoners today."
