Thank you!

Yesterday I signed the Declaration of Acceptance of Office at City Hall which confirmed me as the Mayor of London for the next four years.

In my speech, I repeated my thanks to the people of London for giving me a second mandate and I promised everybody in this city that I and my team will work our socks off to deliver on our vision and our programme for London.

Last chance to Back Boris

BackBoris 2012 Campaign Director Lynton Crosby just sent this message out to campaign supporters.  Make no mistake, the battle isn't over yet!  Make sure you get out and vote before 10pm tonight.

You’ve heard a lot from me recently about why the election today is so critical.

Londoners face a clear choice between going forwards under Boris’s 9 point plan for a Greater London or back to the divisive politics of the past.

Now, the choice is in your hands.  There are just a few hours left to determine London’s future.  If you haven’t already, please make sure you get out and vote before 10pm tonight.

Together we can Back Boris and keep Greater London moving forwards.

Lynton Crosby
Campaign Director

We Back Boris - will you?

We are writing this today because tomorrow London will decide who is to guide our great city through the difficult times we are all facing together.

Here at BackBoris2012 HQ we have been working for Boris for months now, most of us working as volunteers because we believe that he is the best person to be Mayor for a Greater London.

Many of us have never been involved in politics before. Some of us have voted Labour, some Liberal Democrat. Some of us even quit our jobs to be here.

Endorsements roll in for Boris's re-election

In the last few days, Boris has been endorsed by a number of publications who have taken notice of his 9 point plan to secure a Greater London and his strong record of cutting waste and securing investment. We thought we’d share with you what they’re saying and remind you to let us know why you’re backing Boris.

The Evening Standard calls Boris “the right choice for London” and write, “Since his election in 2008, Mr Johnson has campaigned tirelessly for London’s interests, regardless of the complexion of national government.” London is best served by sticking with Boris.

The Daily Mail writes that Boris “is undoubtedly the best man to be Mayor and represent London on the world stage during the Olympics and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.” He’s been a tax-cutting and cost-effective mayor, “Boris has frozen council tax for the last four years – saving the average Londoner a cumulative £445 – and plans to cut it by 10 per cent over the next four years.”

Conservative Home makes the case for Boris, who they say has run a “positive, ambitious Mayoralty.” Boris has already achieved a vast amount as Mayor and has been a Mayor for all Londoners. “His mission is not complete and I hope and believe that this week Londoners will give him the power to get on with it.”

The Sunday Telegraph writes of Boris’s determination to do everything that he can to help small businesses. Boris is someone who can be relied on to do what he says and not to make promises that he cannot keep.

The Sunday Times (£) declares that Boris “remains a far better choice than Mr Livingstone” and that he deserves another term as Mayor of London. 

And The Economist “would like Mr Johnson to serve another term.”

Taking Greater London Forward

The Mayoral election on Thursday comes when we have been going through the toughest times that anyone can remember.

The big question is therefore blindingly simple - who has the best plan for the jobs and growth that will help bring prosperity to all?

It is about who will deliver the investment from central government that will take London forward.

It is about who you can trust to spend that money wisely – and who will be honest with you about where the money is coming from, and how it is spent.
