There is a role that Muslims in the public eye play: to reassure people that we are OK.
I value loyalty and believe that internal disagreements shouldn't be voiced in the media - because divided parties lose elections.
We cannot afford to have the confidence of the public, victims, and witnesses in our justice system undermined because the wrong people are being found guilty and the real criminals are wandering the streets.
London chose to come out in record numbers, the highest turnout there's ever been in a mayoral election, and - I say this not with arrogance; it is what others have said - the single biggest mandate a British politician has ever received. That shows what a wonderful city we are.
I'll be my own man and work closely with a Tory Government if it is in London's interest.
I did not come into Parliament to be a Muslim MP. And I have never set myself up as a Muslim spokesperson or community leader. Just as ordinary citizens have multiple identities, so do MPs.
