Penny Mordaunt: London has some serious problems. It needs a serious candidate – namely, Andrew Boff.
I’m backing him to be the next Mayor of London. He will work tirelessly to deliver and he will lead.
It is funded at a lower level than schools, and yet is expected to put right much that has gone wrong. Technical courses need higher esteem.
No celebrity candidates. No non-Tories. Bailey, Boff and Morrissey have all spent years campaigning, knocking on doors, handing out leaflets in the sun and in the rain.

Greg Taylor: England’s most successful Tory politician won’t be directly addressing the Conference next week.

I’m reassured that his efforts so far reflect a continuation of Johnson’s successful policies for London.
