The Labour campaign (it stopped being the Ken Livingstone campaign a couple of weeks ago when Labour realised that Livingstone was a liability to his own campaign) has been awful. They have made promises they can’t keep and failed to apologise for Livingstone’s epic Â£220K tax evasion whilst he has been out of office. Labour’s last poster just about sums up everything that is wrong about Labour and Livingstone. Negative, dishonest and wrong.
Boris Johnson is a leader for all Londoners, improving the transport system, keeping us safe and costing us all less. He does it with a smile on his face and a real connection to London and its people. Boris is a mayor for everyone. I do hope that you will vote for him.
The polls opened already at 7am this morning. I hope that you will vote for Boris for Mayor, Richard Barnes for the Ealing & Hillingdon GLA seat and for the Tories in party list vote. If you are voting for Boris you don’t need to worry about the second vote in the mayoral election – just leave it blank (it only comes into play if you vote for someone who won’t be in the top two, eg if you vote Green + Livingstone or LibDem + Johnson).
The polls stay open to 10pm. If you haven’t posted your postal vote you can complete it and deliver to any polling station. You don’t need your orange polling card – just turn up and they will look you up. If you tell the party tellers at the polling station what your number is then you won’t be bugged by party workers ringing your bell at 9pm asking if you have have voted. There is nothing sinister about it – they are just trying to get out their vote.
