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!

Weekend campaigning in Beckenham

This weekend saw over 40 street stalls and action days right across the capital. Boris Backers were out on the streets telling Londoners about Mayor Johnson's commitment to keeping their council tax frozen for an unprecedented fourth year in a row.

At our street stall in Beckenham we had a great turnout of activists, councillors and our local MP and the people we encountered were really responsive.

Boris: Join uniformed groups to gain skills

Mayor Johnson today unveiled a new programme to boost job prospects for thousands of young Londoners and steer them away from crime.

In plans outlined during a visit to the Merton Sea Cadets Centre, thousands of young Londoners will have the chance to join uniformed groups like the Guides, Scouts and Cadets, helping them develop vital skills and instil discipline and responsibility. The programme, run by the Safer London Foundation, is aimed at young people particularly at risk of being excluded from education, training or employment.
