Welcome to the last Londoner’s Diary live blog of the week. First up we hear from Hallie Rubenhold, who accidentally started a campaign to turn the Jack the Ripper museum in east London into a centre for homeless women. Jess Phillips is interested. Later today Hilary Mantel talks about the loneliness of her Booker prize wins and Robert Webb talks about avoiding common pitfalls as a male author writing from a woman’s perspective. And in SW1A today Sadiq Khan reveals his latest regret.
