    The 'Mayor of London' is a superfluous position invented by the powers that be for their own reasons.

    There already is a Lord Mayor of London who presides over the City of London and has been since 1189. In addition to this there is a Mayor for each of the different boroughs of London.

    He's head of the City of London Corporation, it's separate from the GLA, although I mocked OP he does have a point that a lot of the financial sector is located within this area, and is therefore in his responsibility.
