Why Polish Londoners should support Boris

As an economist, as well as a Polish Londoner, I believe that Boris is the only candidate who will take this city forward.
 
Poles who live in London - especially those who came here after 2004 - typically either own or are employed by small businesses. Needless to say, it is these types of businesses which are suffering the most from the protracted recession. It is precisely for that reason that it is so important that our Mayor prioritizes help for small businesses.

WATCH: Bendy buses off London's roads

At just after midnight tonight, the bendy bus on route 207 from White City to Hayes by-pass will make it's final journey.

Introduced in June 2002 by Ken Livingstone, bendy buses were unsuitable for London's roads. Too often they were involved in dangerous accidents and it was too easy to avoid paying.

Call from home for BB2012

John Moss, candidate for the City & East London Assembly seat, blogs about how telephone canvassing helped win for Boris in 2008.

What could be easier than sitting at home with a cup of tea and making a few phone calls? Well, that's exactly what a few hundred people did in 2008 and in doing so, helped Boris to beat Ken Livingstone.

I joined the campaign team full time in March 2008 and was asked if I could make anything of “a few people who’ve offered to make calls from home”. By polling day, over 600 people had signed up.

Join the phone canvassing team!

Last night I attended the first of many BackBoris2012 telephone canvassing sessions at their new call centre in Canary Wharf. Enthusiastic volunteers came from across London to connect with voters over Boris’s achievements and their opinions on the capital's future.

Fuelled by the provisions laid on by the BackBoris team, I made loads of calls to voters and, from what I could hear, the other new canvassers did a fantastic job spreading the word about the Mayor's record.
