Sian Berry has welcomed comments from the Federation of Small Businesses’ London Policy Unit that she is the most “on message” candidate in next week’s Mayoral election.
IN a mailing sent to members the FSB says “There is a strong case for saying that the Green candidate Sian Berry is most “on message” with what we are saying, followed by Boris Johnson for the Conservatives, with Lib Dem Brian Paddick trailing in third place ahead of current Mayor Ken Livingstone.”
Ken Livingstone is described as being “more engaged with large business and the multinationals,” while the document predicts that FSB members will be “disappointed” with both Boris Johnson and Brian Paddick.
Welcoming the comments MS Berry said “Greens have been working to promote small business for years, and I’m delighted that the FSB have confirmed that we’ve been getting it right by rating our manifesto as the best for London. I agree with the FSB that Ken Livingstone has been too close to big business to secure the future of the smaller companies that are the bedrock of our economy.”
