It’s just hours until the polls open to elect my successor as Mayor of London.
But before they do, I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to all Londoners for the immense privilege of allowing me to be your Mayor over the last 8 years.
Being your Mayor has been a massive, massive honour for me. But the most important thing now is that everything that’s good that we’ve done – and tried to do – in this city is taken forward.
And I have to tell you there’s only one candidate at this election that I think is able to do that. And that is Zac Goldsmith.
Zac is an extraordinary politician. He’s absolutely rigid in his environmental principles. He’ll do a superb job in bringing our city together and in taking it forward. And he’s the only guy at this election who can do the deals with central government that will give us the funding that we need.
So if you think London has been going in broadly the right direction, if you think our great city has still got further to go, then I hope very much that you’ll support Zac Goldsmith tomorrow, and make Greater London greater still.
