Boris honours our veterans

This week, as the nation remembers those who made the ultimate sacrifice, the welfare of veterans is very much front of mind. Those of us who have served in the armed forces do so without expectation of gratitude - we do it because we love our country.

Boris delivers for Bexley

I have always been a Bexley boy – born and educated. And this year I have managed to get on the property ladder with my partner in the borough.

I work in London and so join the significant number of commuters who work hard in the city centre and return to our suburban surroundings in the evenings. One of my sisters still lives in the borough with her husband and young children and my mum has worked in Sidcup for over sixteen years.

I welcome Boris’ improvements to front-line policing in Lambeth

In Lambeth, the benefits of having Boris Johnson as Mayor are very practical and highly noticeable.

In my local park, a friend works with neighbours on a “grow-your-own” vegetable plot. The social and environmental benefits of bringing city dwellers closer to nature and the food chain are immense. So I am pleased that Boris has created over 80 green spaces in Lambeth alone that will allow similar schemes.

Harrow has benefited from Boris's hard work

Harrow is one of the most diverse areas of London, with residents from all walks of life contributing to the borough.

I remember feeling very neglected by Ken Livingstone and many Harrow residents felt the same. His focus on the ‘inner boroughs’ really did annoy people here. But since Boris has been Mayor we have benefited from his hard work, and his dedication to ensure that all boroughs receive the attention they deserve has not gone unnoticed.

Boris Backers make eshop launch a success

The BackBoris2012 eshop went live at the end of last week and Boris Backers didn't wait long to place their orders with items flying off the shelves within hours of the launch.

Our stylish, blue pens sold out so quickly we've had to put in an emergency order for thousands more. But fear not they'll be back in stock within days.

More police officers on Havering's streets

With less than six months to go before London goes to the polls to elect its next Mayor I urge all Londoners to remember the many great achievements of our current mayor Boris Johnson.

And here in Havering, Boris is making a difference and taking our borough forward. We have benefited from a freeze in council tax payments, much welcomed in these tough times and very different from the 153% rise imposed by Ken Livingstone.

Thanks to Boris we have more allotments in B&D

Over the last 15 years, Barking and Dagenham council 'land grabbed' a lot of our local allotment sites - often to sell to developers. But that all changed with the introduction of Boris' Capital Growth scheme. It aims to have 2,012 growing sites by 2012. I'm proud that my local site in Reed Road is one of many to benefit.

We have been able to upgrade the original site, to create an area where plot holders can come together, to relax, chat, and form a real community spirit.

The 'Boris effect' in Barking & Dagenham

We all like people who say it as it is, who deliver what they say they will, especially here in Barking and Dagenham. We have grown to appreciate that a Mayor can make a difference to our lives, even in zones three to six.

Boris said that he would get rid of the newspaper ‘The Londoner’ that clogged up our letterboxes with propaganda from City Hall and instead use the money for planting trees. Over 1,000 have been planted since, and they are helping transform this area into a greener place to live and work.

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.
