Help pass Boris's council tax cut

Families in London are feeling the financial pressure. That's why Boris Johnson is working hard to keep a lid on the prices he controls whenever he can. It's why he stopped Ken Livingstone's £25 tax on family cars and ended 8 years of council tax hikes which cost the average family almost £1,000.

Now, Boris is fighting to cut council tax in his proposed budget as part of his plan to invest in Greater London's future, and he needs your help to ensure that it gets passed.

Boris: Help me cut your council tax

Now more than ever, the responsibility of any Mayor is to treat every penny of Londoners' money with care. Because it's not my money. It's yours. 

And it will only ever be used on the things that take London forward. To invest in transport infrastructure, put more police on the streets, make the Olympics a success and build more affordable housing.

Boris secures £90m to keep police numbers high

Mayor Boris Johnson has secured £90m to keep police numbers high on London's streets, despite the harsh economic climate.

The grant from the Home Office follows last week's news that 700 new police officers will be sworn in over the next two months. And with this increase, the number of police on London’s streets will top 32,320 by March 31 – meaning that under Boris Johnson, there will be 1,000 more police officers on the streets.

If you're an Australian, Greater London needs you!

On this wonderful day - and for those unsure why the 26th of January is so special, let me enlighten you - it's Australia Day. As an Australian living and working in London, I'm proudly celebrating, and expecting many other across Hammersmith, Clapham and Shoreditch are too!

And this year I have a more serious message for all the other Australians in the capital - you're eligible to vote in this May's Mayoral election. It is not only British citizens who have a say over how this great city is run, but qualifying Londoners from across the Commonwealth.

Boris will have 1,000 more police on the beat than at the end of Ken's term

Labour claim: Boris scrapped Ken's plan to increase police officers

This is false, Ken's promise was empty because he never had the money to do it. Another broken promise from Ken Livingstone.

Mayor Boris Johnson's Draft Budget: Value for money and freezing the precept

This administration has been dedicated to delivering value for Londoners’ money, and to leading the city to a strong economic recovery.

You must remember that in the last four years we have not only been dealing with the deepest recession for 50 years.

We have had to overturn and reform a culture of waste in City Hall.

Boris cutting crime with more police on the streets

Boris Johnson today said that one of his proudest achievements as Mayor of London has been cutting crime by more than 10% and increasing police numbers on local streets.

Speaking on LBC’s Nick Ferrari Breakfast Show this morning, Mayor Johnson said: “Crime figures are down compared with Ken Livingstone and we’ve had to do it in the teeth of a recession. Crime has come down more than 10% overall. Murder is down almost 25% since I’ve become Mayor. I’m very proud of that. That’s because of more police.”

Calling from home is easy (and fun)!

I think Boris is doing a great job as Mayor of London and I really wanted to help out in the campaign to get him re-elected.

Unfortunately, it's difficult for me to get into London to lend a hand with on-the-street campaigning, so I decided to do my bit by signing up to ‘call from home’. As soon as I got my password, I was able to start making calls and was pleasantly surprised how easy it was!
