It was great to see Michelle Obama honouring her decade-long connection to Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School with a third visit on Monday.

Transport chiefs are at last consulting on a “missing link” portion of Cycle Superhighway 1 that will connect Hackney to Islington along Balls Pond Road.

I used this space last week to talk about compromise in a crisis.

That column was about housing, but the same is true of today’s report about the Old Street one-way system.

Back in 2016, we reported on plans to flatten one of the blocks at Besant Court.

Sandy Marks has continued to protest her innocence in the face of a QC’s finding that she was involved with pro-paedophile campaign groups in 1979 and 1980.

The publication of Sarah Morgan’s independent review this week is a vindication of our decision to print allegations about Sandy Marks’ past 18 months ago (almost to the day).

A top barrister has confirmed former Islington councillor Sandy Marks’ past links to a pro-paedophile campaign group.

Hannah Somerville’s investigation into the deaths of homeless people in Islington makes extremely sad reading.

Indie favourites take their Good Humor LP out the garage and into the British Library for a live outing on its 20th anniversary

I’m torn over the low-level outcry that greeted Islington Council’s decision to broker a deal with Wireless Festival, and withdraw its formal submission to the licensing review.

If you think it’s a bit weird that we’ve written about the conviction of two paedophiles without printing their faces, you’re quite right.

Middle-eastern vegan pop-up What the Fattoush? is at Kingsland Road’s Pamela bar until the new year.

Islington Council was told to act over the “fire trap” flats on the Spa Green Estate more than a year ago.

I’d like to welcome the Gazette’s newest contributor Nicola Baird to this page.

Which of the following do you think TfL should have approached the Gazette about?

As delighted as I am that the Gazette seems to have rescued a young Islington woman from being wrongly sent abroad, Tricia Persad’s plight really shouldn’t have required the intervention of a newspaper.

When Westminster Council took TfL to the High Court over CS11 last month, Mr Justice Holgate said he had “never seen anything like” it.

The 4, 19, 134, 341 and 476 buses – all of which run through Islington – could have their routes altered or shortened under radical secret plans.

Hackney Council has urged Transport for London to scrap a series of “unacceptable” cuts to bus services that would see the 48 shelved completely and several others scaled back.

The 48 could be cancelled and a string of other Hackney and Islington bus routes slashed in length and frequency under radical secret plans.

The bravery of Sarah Doone is a poignant reminder that cycling infrastructure isn’t just an abstract concept.

A four-year standoff over a 100-yard stretch of road will finally end when a missing piece of Cycle Superhighway 1 is built – in spring 2019.

We’ve taken some stick for our reporting of the collision at Old Street roundabout that left a woman fighting for her life, and while I normally assume readers don’t care about the actual day-to-day of our jobs I’m curious as to what everyone else thinks we should have done.

Fire destroyed a flat above a Finsbury Park chicken shop this afternoon.

A teenager is in hospital with gunshot wounds following a shooting in Highbury on Wednesday night – the second in 24 hours and Islington’s third in four days.

The treatment of workers on the Dover Court Estate is outrageous.

It is no small marvel that, in 2018, a local campaign group is able to score a major victory against a company so large it holds millions of pounds’ worth of public contracts.

A teenager was today jailed for nine years for the horrifically brutal manslaughter of Mohammed Hersi using a chair at a Finsbury Park cafe last year.

£7million sounds like quite a lot, right?

Talk about a Pyrrhic victory.
