Newslinks | Boris' Focus

The Independent has a good summary of Boris Johnson's campaign to be Mayor, and the issues which he wishes to focus on: crime, housing and transport.

Today's plans to combat crime will be followed by proposals for rejuvenating public transport, tackling the shortage of affordable housing and ensuring the 2012 London Olympics stay on budget. They will build towards a manifesto due to be published in February. A month of promoting its key messages will be followed by six weeks' intensive campaigning in the run-up to the poll on 1 May.

We very much hope that we start to see more substance in Mr Johnson's campaign, especially with regards to the transport agenda which he envisions for London. As soon as his plans are released, we shall profile them here.
