The GLC (Greater London Council) was established in 1965 as the successor to the London County Council. It had an administrative area of 610 square miles, responsibility for more than seven million people and, by 1977, 26,000 employees. Under the Conservative Sir Horace Cutler it devolved planning decisions to thirty-two local boroughs, but it remained an unwieldy bureaucracy. Its best-known leader was Labour leftwinger Ken Livingstone, who antagonized the Conservative government by inviting members of the IRA for talks because he argued that the government was not protecting London. The GLC was abolished in 1986. Tony Blair’s New Labour Party has not pledged to give London back its own governing body.
