Boris Johnson's campaign reports:
Loads of students and graduates from across London got a rallying cry from Mayor Boris Johnson this weekend at the first BackBoris Bootcamp.
From the ultra cool Altitude 360 venue, at the top of Millbank Tower, Boris led a packed day which gave young campaigners a masterclass in political campaigning and strategy.
These events give campaigners the tools to run their own effective campaigns to get out Boris's record as Mayor, including cutting crime by almost 9% and securing the biggest ever upgrade of London's
transport network. The campaign team also learnt a lot about how many committed young activists there are, ready and willing to step up to the challenge.
Many have already signed up as Online Activists, giving them access tools to get out Boris's record in office, recruit new supporters, create their own events, download resources and connect directly with activists across London and the team at campaign HQ. So why not join them?

If Boris beats Ken Livingstone next year I think the photo will give a feel of why. Boris is about the future, about having fun, about new ideas, about being positive. He is the Mayor of fireworks displays and cable cars, of tree planting and fewer traffic lights. He is the Mayor of drinking fountains and spending transparency. He is the Mayor of Boris Bikes and Boris Island, of judo and jazz, of the Oxford Circus X intersection, of river travel and edible estates. There is a sense of energy, of independence of risk taking about his mayoralty. Livingstone has a feeling of being negative and tired.
This is particularly important in terms of the youth vote and also of an energised campaign team.
