Six months to go - Show your support!

In six months Londoners will elect the Mayor who will govern their city until 2016.

Boris Johnson needs your help to be re-elected on 3 May 2012 and to keep the capital moving in the right direction.

London has come a long way since Boris became Mayor as he delivers on his promises to make London safer, invest in a creaking transport network to make it more reliable and keep the cost of living down.

He is putting 1,000 more police officers on our streets than he inherited, helping to make our neighbourhoods safer, with crime down by 9.4%.

He is making our transport system more reliable, after securing the vital Tube upgrades and Crossrail.

He has kept the cost of living as low as possible by freezing his share of your council tax after a 153% rise under Ken Livingstone.

He is making the Olympics a success, ensuring the stadiums are built on time and under budget, while also ensuring a genuine legacy.

And he is growing London's economy, ensuring new opportunities for Londoners, including doubling the number of apprenticeships for young people compared to when Ken Livingstone was in office. This is the largest growth anywhere in the country.

The next six months will be a tough fight as Londoners weigh up a clear choice – getting on with the job under Boris Johnson or risking going backwards under Ken Livingstone.

Today we are making it easier than ever to Back Boris.

We are launching an e-shop so you can let everyone know you're Backing Boris by stocking up on the iconic designs: www.backboris2012.com/eshop

And we are launching a new 'vox pops' section on our homepage where we'll show your video messages of support: www.backboris2012.com/#backing

And every weekday for the next 6 weeks, we will be devoting an entire day to showing what Boris has done in every borough, starting with Barking and Dagenham tomorrow. So look out for #BORISinBandD and subsequently #BORISin...

I think you underestimate the support that is yours for the taking from otherwise-Labour voters. There are many that detest Livingstone as much as you can be expected to.

I’m sure there are ways of mobilising this potential support in a subtle and effective manner.

Ken Livingstone is the only exception to the rule of “go for the ball and not the man” that I can think of, inside of politics or out.
