Len Duvall AM responds to Boris Johnson's selection as Conservative candidate for Uxbridge and South Ruislip

Responding to Boris Johnson’s selection as the Conservative candidate for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, Len Duvall, Leader of the London Assembly Labour Group, said:

“Despite his promises it’s been clear for a long time that Boris Johnson has always regarded London as little more than a stepping stone.

“Boris has admitted that he only became Mayor to ‘show what he could do’, but in reality he is set to leave behind a disappointing legacy, having failed to resolve any of London’s major problems during his time as Mayor. With a chronic housing crisis, reduced police numbers and London A&E units under threat, there is a lot the Mayor of London should be focusing on in his remaining two years in office. Running for Parliament and positioning himself for a potential Conservative leadership challenge are not on that list.

“Personal ambitions of the Mayor aside, this is a sad development for London. From here on in we will be left with a part-time Mayor as Boris devotes more and more of his time to his election campaign and political manoeuvrings.”
