On July 22, 2005 Sikh Federation (UK) reported, "Sikh representatives have met with the Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone to discuss a range of important issues relating to the Sikh community. Informed commentators believe the meeting organised and facilitated by the Sikh Federation (UK) and the outcomes represent one of the most positive developments for British Sikhs in the last 30 years. Ken Livingstone is probably the second most important politician in the UK after the Prime Minister and has shown by his willingness to support the Sikh community that Sikhs can work with politicians at the highest levels to secure lasting benefits for Sikhs in this country."
