While the presidential campaign race rages on in America, politics in London are about to get interesting. As the London mayoral election approaches, one man, Prince John Zylinski, seems to be the most fiery candidate.

The property developer whose family was uprooted in Poland during World War II, Zylinski entered the news back in April 2015, when he challenged fellow politician Nigel Farage to a swordfight duel in Hyde Park.

His election to mayor would be beneficial to Londoners as they endure a housing crisis, which is one of the biggest recurring stories in The Guardian – London.

Another big news item that hit The Guardian – London website this week concerned the group of Heathrow runway protesters being sentenced to prison time for their actions. While protesting the construction of a new runway at London’s Heathrow Airport, protesters trespassed on a live runway and chained themselves to a rail.
