Ken Livingstone Press Release
Ken Livingstone said today that David Cameron’s eve-of-poll plea for
Londoners to vote for the Tory candidate showed the need for every
Londoner who wants an alternative to Tory policies to vote on Thursday.
In a lengthy interview in today's Conservative-backing Evening Standard,
Tory PM David Cameron today urges Londoners to stick with the Tories in
Labour’s Ken Livingstone said:
“The David Cameron-Boris Johnson love-in on the eve of the election
clarifies the very serious stakes for Londoners. It is two Tory peas in a
pod. The Tory PM wants you to vote for the Tory Mayor so that they can
keep going with Tory policies that mean recession, fare rises and police
“What David Cameron wants is four more years of Tory policies in London.
Cameron’s plea for Londoners to vote for Boris Johnson shows why we need a
Labour Mayor. A second Tory term would see the Tories off the leash in
London, with a green light for even higher fares and policies that will
lead to growing social division.
“Taking a few minutes to vote Labour will ensure David Cameron doesn’t get
his wish for a Tory Mayor. A few minutes voting will get you a Labour
fares cut worth £1000 after years of Tory fares hikes. Don’t let the
Tories get away with it – vote Labour in London.”
