2 weeks & counting

May 3rd is just around the corner and things are moving fast. Boris had another jam- packed week of activities whist he continues his tour of all 32 London boroughs. Help spread the word about Boris Johnson's 9 point plan for a Greater London - sign up as a volunteer today: www.backboris2012.com/volunteer

Cutting waste and council tax

On Wednesday morning, Boris launched the Cutting waste and council tax chapter of his manifesto, pledging to cut the mayoral share of council tax by at least 10% over his second term.

At the launch Boris framed the choice on 3 May – his record of cutting waste, freeing up £3.5billion for services and cutting council tax for all Londoners or his predecessor’s record of financial mismanagement, waste and hiking up council tax by £964, hitting all Londoners.

Boris supporters took to the streets Thursday morning to spread the word about Boris’s council tax cut, leafleting over 160 stations across Greater London.

Taking the 9 point plan to Mumsnet

On Monday Boris faced what he called his toughest audience yet – a live online chat on Mumsnet. Boris answered hard-hitting questions on transport, crime and economic growth, all key aspects of his 9 point plan for a Greater London.

It also emerged that his favourite biscuit is a chocolate digestive, because “The important point about a chocolate digestive is that it combines the temptation of the chocolate with the nourishment of the wholemeal biscuit pabulum stuff. Each biscuit delivers on that promise, time after time, until you get to the bottom of the packet. It is about consistency and reliability. It does what it says on the packet. That is the essence of my commitment to London.”

With 1,000 more police on the streets, valuable investment in transport infrastructure and plans to create 200,000 new jobs over the next four years Boris brought his positive plans for Greater London to Mumsnet.

Boris also visited Croydon, Camden (where he was joined by David Cameron), Kingston upon Thames, Hounslow, Brent, Bexley and Westminster, bringing his 9 point plan to even more Londoners.

And in Bromley on Tuesday night, Boris was joined by the Prime Minister, plus hundreds of supporters for a Campaign Rally to thank volunteers.
