Thank you!

Yesterday I signed the Declaration of Acceptance of Office at City Hall which confirmed me as the Mayor of London for the next four years.

In my speech, I repeated my thanks to the people of London for giving me a second mandate and I promised everybody in this city that I and my team will work our socks off to deliver on our vision and our programme for London.

Taking Greater London Forward

The Mayoral election on Thursday comes when we have been going through the toughest times that anyone can remember.

The big question is therefore blindingly simple - who has the best plan for the jobs and growth that will help bring prosperity to all?

It is about who will deliver the investment from central government that will take London forward.

It is about who you can trust to spend that money wisely – and who will be honest with you about where the money is coming from, and how it is spent.

Less than 3 weeks!

There are just 19 days until polling day and we’re making every minute count. Take a look below at what we’ve been up to this week, and get involved by signing up to volunteer: www.backboris2012.com/volunteer Just an hour or two of your time will make a huge difference.

Official campaign launch and Party Election Broadcast

On Tuesday Boris marked the official launch of his re-election campaign with a speech to supporters in Richmond.

Speaking to an enthusiastic crowd of 250, Boris framed the choice we face at this election - we can either go forwards with a sensible, moderate and cost-effective government that delivers on its promises or lurch back to the high-taxing, divisive approach of Ken Livingstone. Boris’s programme of modernisation, investment and automation was met with huge applause and support for his re-election bid.

Hot on the heels of the launch, Boris’s party election broadcast aired Tuesday evening.

In the broadcast, Boris offered a strong case for why Londoners should support him on 3 May. His 9 point plan to secure a greater London means 200,000 new jobs, £221 million invested in local high streets and businesses and £3.5 billion cut in waste over the next four years. Watch the broadcast to hear more.

Mayoral debates

It was another big week for debates and hustings. Boris participated in the Evening Standard debate Wednesday night and drove home the point that this election is about trust.  He highlighted the progress we have made over the last four years of his mayoralty and made the case for his 9 point plan for a Greater London.

Boris also participated in both the disability and Black Britain Decides hustings on Thursday, during which he continued to highlight his strong record as Mayor.

Join us on the campaign trail!

In addition to the events and debates above, Boris visited Upminster, Hillingdon, Ealing and Kensington and Chelsea to meet local residents. Next time he goes out on the Battle Bus you could be there too. Have a look at the events page to see where you might be able to join Boris on the campaign trail.

Can't Afford Ken

A new report released by the BackBoris team showed that Ken Livingstone has made £2.7 billion worth of unfunded promises whilst campaigning.

Ken would have to increase the mayor’s share of council tax by £348 for a Band D household over four years and increase the congestion charge by 42.1% or introduce a Heathrow Congestion Charge zone in order to deliver the 24 promises he has made. Take a look at the report, titled “Can’t Afford Ken” to learn more.

Watch: My Party Election Broadcast

By Boris Johnson

It is an honour to be Mayor of London and in every conversation I have with Londoners I feel a huge sense of responsibility.

Especially now, when times are tough, it is vital that we have a Mayor that works to get the best possible deal for Londoners and this city.

Over the last four years I’ve been getting on with my plan to turn things around because this is the most important job I’ll ever do.

It’s a job that is nobody’s by right. And I’d like to tell you why I am seeking the job again.

As I told those gathered this morning for the official launch of my campaign for re-election, the stakes in this election are high – Britain has been brought to the brink of bankruptcy, and Londoners have been going through some of the toughest times that we can remember.

And the choice on 3rd May is very clear – between lurching back to the high-taxing, discredited and divisive approach of my predecessor, or going forward with four more years of sensible, responsible and cost-effective government in London.

Please take a few minutes and be one of the first to watch my Party Election Broadcast, setting out why I'm seeking the job of Mayor again: http://youtu.be/LmONVlMkCbU

At this critical election vote for me, Boris Johnson, and the Conservatives on Thursday the 3rd of May.
