Hackney’s a pretty exciting place to live right now.
From my house I can see the Olympic Stadium and the refurbished London Overground. And we need someone who can make sure we get the most out of these new opportunities.
The Olympics are a great opportunity for Hackney, and although lots of people think it’s costing an arm and a leg, it was costing an arm and two legs before Boris got hold of it!

A message from Lynton Crosby, BackBoris2012 Campaign Director:
The safety of London's streets is a key responsibility of London's Mayor. When Boris was elected Mayor crime was one of London's most pressing issues - robberies were increasing; violent crime was up; gun crime was up; and 27 teenagers were murdered in 2007 alone.
Yet the previous Mayor, Ken Livingstone, was ignoring the issue. In February 2008 he was exposed for conning Londoners after he wrongly claimed to be putting more police on our streets - a line he is still peddling three years on. In fact he wasn't. He was relying on the boroughs and the Government to put police on our streets and provided no extra funding himself.

Fascinating piece by Deputy Mayor for Policing Kit Malthouse in the Evening Standard today and well worth a read.
The safety of London's streets has become a hot topic recently and it is worth a quick recap of how things were in May 2008, when Boris was voted in as Mayor. Crime was one of London's most pressing issues - robberies were increasing; violent crime as up; gun crime was up; 27 teenagers were murdered in 2007 alone.

More than 1,500 police officers took part in a massive crackdown on robbery and buglary earlier this week.
Officers burst into dozens of houses across London at the start of a six-month long campaign, targeting 20 specific areas.
Boris Johnson accompanied officers on some of the raids, taking at least one suspect by surprise.

Millions of Londoners are today receiving their copies of the Boris Record detailing the Mayor's achievements in office.
The newspapers are tailored to each of the capital's boroughs and have been paid for by voluntary donations - not taxpayers' money.
They detail how Boris is leading the charge to improve local transport links, freezing his share of your council tax and how putting more police on the streets has led to fall in crime in your neighbourhoods.

Figures out today show crime is falling across the country. They also show London is outperforming the rest of the country in certain areas. According to the Home Office statistics drug offences in London have fallen at five times the rate as the rest of the country.
