the local authority that was in control of Greater London from 1965 to 1983. In the 1980s Margaret Thatcher found the GLC and its leader, Ken Livingstone, too left-wing, and changed the system of local government so that each borough was responsible for itself. No single authority was then responsible for the whole of Greater London until the election of the London Assembly in 2000.
