    make London greater still?

    Mayor of London-elect Boris Johnson has insisted that leading the fightback against crime is his top priority, as he vowed to "make London greater still".

    Hello! What does "make London great still" mean? still? Thanks!

    If someone wants to make London greater still, they want stop (tackle) crime and make London a safer place to live.

    Hi jctgf

    Yes, I believe that is exactly what the newly elected mayor of London intended.

    He said he believed that London was already great (and paid tribute to Ken Livingstone, the 1st & previous Mayor, in that respect) and wanted to make it even greater.

    Hope this helps

    Hi folks

    In the present context, the newly elected Mayor would not have intended to make London greater in terms of land area but in terms of its standing in the world arena.

    For those that are not aware, the previous Mayor of London took over control of the area that had been previously controlled by a body called the Greater London Council (GLC).
