Foreword from Andrew Boff
As Mayor I will stand up for all Londoners, I’ll fight for the change we need, take the tough action on crime, automate our underground, tackle the housing crisis and fight to bring powers from Westminster to City Hall and push them down to Town Halls. I will challenge waste and I will cut taxes. Together we can bring about the change that London needs. Read my full manifesto below.
A True Londoner
I was born in a London Council house; I’m the son of a West End policeman and east London NHS worker. I have lived in London my entire life and ran my own IT business before I became a full-time politician. It is vital that we have a candidate determined to win.
I led Hillingdon Conservatives to victory in 1990, against the national trend, and delivered on our radical, tax-cutting agenda. I won a safe Labour ward in Hackney, on my record as a local campaigner who helped turn Broadway Market into London’s best, community-led market.
Another four years of Sadiq Khan will do so much damage to our city. His “war on the suburbs” will mean tower blocks where they aren’t wanted and a rash of “garden-grabbing” developments, with family houses torn down and blocks of flats built in their place.
After I was elected to City Hall in 2008, I became the Leader of our Group and developed it into a “think-tank” which produced some of the best ideas for London. One of those reports recommended the introduction of body-worn cameras, so the Police could carry out more stops and searches, without feeling at risk.
Being in City Hall for ten years means I know how things work and how to deliver. That’s why I want to cut the tax you pay to City Hall. Every. Single. Year.
I have the experience to govern and I am determined to win and together, we can beat Sadiq Khan!
