EDIT: To the "fool" that neg me I made a mistake and misunderstood the OP's question, however I was on TSR ipod app you cannot (or I do not know how to delete) posts so I just erased my comment.
You get neg for just about anything on TSR

If you want to go to LSE you need to be good at maths, having both maths and further maths would probably look pretty good (as long as you can do them). Statistics probably wouldn't be bad either.
What degrees are you thinking you're likely to go for?
Doing biology won't be held in especially high regard in comparison to those subjects, and without at least one maths A level you're a lot less likely to get in. But Biology will just be another A level to show that you can work hard.

Further maths will be a big big help on the economics side of it. You probably won't get in to do an economics course without doing further maths. And any other science (physics>chemistry>biology) will be a big help. But if you're much more confident with biology, that might be a safer choice.

Further maths isn't really recommended on site, and to be honest I believe I could do better in another subject like Spanish and still obviously do maths. This wouldn't put me at a disadvantage would it? Or would someone advise to do more maths subjects even though they aren't listed.

It is a maths obsessed university.

Sorry but this is wrong.
You don't need Maths at all for Economic History which is Economic related.
Friend of mine got in with Psychology, Economics and History.
You don't need further Maths for Government /Phil and Economics.
Know a handful of people with offers without it.
Do they go to LSE?
Edit: It's 5:30, so forgive me for not reading this all properly first time around, the OP said they want to do philosophy and economics at LSE. Not economic history etc. I've given them advice about that particular course. The one bit that I would like to retract is that further maths would be useful on the philosophy side of it at all. But philosophy and economics will very likely entail a use of further maths. And the more maths based A levels, the more they will like your application. The exception here being philosophy (I think), as that's one of the things the OP wants to study.
