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 telephone canvassing

Yesterday evening Boris Backers manned the phones at a canvassing session in central London to spread the word about Boris Johnson’s record as Mayor and to listen to the concerns of Londoners.

In two and a half hours, we made hundreds of calls. A large majority of respondents were very positive about Boris’s time in charge and keen to see it continue. We even had several requests from people keen to join the campaign as volunteers!

Youth campaign picks up pace

With a hugely enjoyable and successful Campaign Day in Hammersmith under its belt, the Back Boris Youth Campaign is stepping up the pace.

This combination of street stalls and leafleting we will see Boris Backers from across London speaking to residents about the Mayor's record in office and their concerns, while also handing out copies of the Record newspaper.

Report from H'smith Campaign Day

Cracking day in Hammersmith today. I was one of the hundred or so young BackBoris campaigners who spent most of the day talking to more than a thousand residents. Great to see so many supporting Boris for scrapping the western extension of the c-charge. Many still amazed it was ever introduced - not a single person I spoke to ever wanted it. Also good to see that Boris's freezing of his share of council tax is helping so many families. Some good comments to pass back to campaign HQ as well.

Hammersmith Campaign Day | Saturday

Excitement is growing ahead of this weekend’s Back Boris Youth Campaign Day in Hammersmith.

Over a hundred young activists are set to descend on the town centre, talking to local residents and spreading the word about Boris's strong record in office - from putting more police on the streets, cutting crime, securing the biggest upgrade of our transport system in 80-years, creating thousands of jobs and apprenticeships and delivering the Olympics on time and on budget.
