Back Boris Borough Battle Bus launches

The Back Boris Borough Battle Bus launches its unprecedented tour of London's 32 boroughs today!

Boris Backers will fill the bus over the next seven weeks leading up to election day on 3 May, taking the message of Boris's 9 point plan to every corner of the capital, in a first for any mayoral campaign.

The tour will give as many Londoners as possible the chance to question the Mayor about his progress over the past 4 years and hear his 9 point plan for securing Greater London's future.

One of Boris's promises in 2008 was to run the most open and honest administration in Britain. With official figures showing that he visited 31 of the 32 boroughs in London more times between 2008 and 2012 than his predecessor managed between 2004 and 2008, the Mayor is committed to hearing from Londoners and reporting back to them on his time in office.

Boris Johnson said: "This election comes at a critical time. Londoners are going through one of the toughest periods in recent memory. Despite this there are signs of progress which I will continue with my 9 point plan for Greater London.

"Our unprecedented Back Boris borough battle bus tour will continue my record of getting out to almost all London’s boroughs more times in four years than Mr Livingstone did in eight and I look forward to meeting with residents and businesses and discussing my plans to secure a Greater London."
