Boris: Support apprenticeships to help unemployed back to work

Boris Johnson has today defended businesses that offer the young a chance of real work, saying they should be praised, not vilified:

We have more and more young people out of work, and who find themselves caught in a catch-22. They are told they can’t get a job unless they have some work experience; and they can’t get any work experience unless someone is willing to give them a job.

London needs you - today!

Boris Backers are a dedicated bunch. You're working every day of the week, pounding the streets of London and taking to social media, to get the word out about Boris's achievements.

Thousands of volunteers are delivering leaflets; using our activist dashboard to write letters to the editor, Tweet achievements, recruit their friends and create campaign events; giving out flyers at stations; knocking on doors and making calls to voters.

BackBoris phone canvassing

On Monday, I had a great time at Conservative HQ phoning Londoners about their priorities for London and to see what they thought of Boris. There was an extra buzz in the room because Boris was there in person and so it gave us all an even greater sense of urgency and purpose to what we were doing!

What do you love about London?

The Mayoral election on 3 May comes at a critical time. Londoners are going through one of the toughest periods in recent memory. Despite this, there are signs of progress coming from the fresh and honest approach. The same fresh-thinking that has delivered the world's most successful bike hire scheme.

Boris's determination to end the waste and mismanagement of the previous Mayor has freed up the money to pay for a strong plan for our future - helping to keep London the greatest city in the world.

Our campaign to get Boris re-elected is built on ordinary Londoners from across the city and we want to know what you love about your city.
