News Shopper: Boris Johnson urging Londoners to work together for a prosperous new year Boris Johnson urging Londoners to work together for a prosperous new year

BORIS Johnson is calling on Londoners to work together in 2014 to ensure the future success of the capital.

In his new year message the mayor of London says 2013 was a memorable year for London, including the birth of Prince George.

And now he says we should look to the future to make next year just as memorable and even more successful.

The mayor said: “We are also beginning to see the signs of a sustained economic recovery.

“As that recovery gathers pace, it is vital that we harness that recovery to build tens of thousands of new homes for Londoners and get hundreds of thousands of young Londoners into work.

“We have the opportunity areas, 33 brownfield sites around London - you can see what's happening in Croydon, Battersea, in the Royal Docks, in Greenwich.

“Let's not forget the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park which reopens next year, a glorious green space that will reinvigorate a huge swathe of east London, bringing jobs and growth to benefit even more Londoners.

"There is excitement, the confidence in our city all around the world.

“We can use that recovery to deliver the homes, the jobs, the prosperity that Londoners need.

“So let's continue to strive and to work together to ensure the future success of our great city.”

Yes I sense a better year in 2014, when we remove the tory filth out of the Bexley borough at the local elections. Boris's friend Leader O'Neill and her Tory gang have caused so much discontent. It's lies with vindicate council.

As for the jobs, what jobs?. Part time or temporary, many jobs without a contract. Yes this is the Tory way, no jobs that have a future. Where employment, is not a right where employers can sack at will. It's called use them then dump them!.

The time is now, for workers rights, which the Tories have removed all rights. Which was then given to employers, to abuse and use its workers as they wish!.

With the 11% pay increase that Boris and his friends will be getting. Will he be standing up for those that have had no increase for years under Tory rule?. At best offer them 1%, they suffer so Boris and his like can laugh.

Yes, much needed housing for our newly arriving E.U. comrades, more jobs on offer to them as opposed to our own people, more fighting and chaos over our already overstretched services now that there will be more over population on this sinking island, crime soaring but little evidence of police involvement as most cop shops have closed shop.....permanently
. oh yes, it's gonna be a fantastic 2014 for Londoners.......can'

Presumably those hundreds of thousands of young Londoners wont become Firemen, or work for TFL?

I think the 11% refers to MPs. Not sure if it applies to all the piggies in the trough or just the Westminster ones.

Pathetic ignorant racist rubbish. PUKIP & British Nazi Party screeched for months about "millions" of immigrants on 1st January, & they never came.

And since I do not consider myself to be a "Londoner" I don't give a toss what happens there.
