London’s election organisers are looking for youngsters who are passionate about London and their local area to take part in a new voting awareness campaign.

The campaign is being organised by London Elects, the body which is overseeing this year’s Mayor and London Assembly elections.

Sarah Garrett says: “On 3 May, Londoners will be able to vote for the Mayor of London and 25 London Assembly members. These people make decisions that affect many aspects of your everyday life in London. 

“We want young people who love London as much as we do to join us to make sure that the capital’s young people know how to have their say on 3rd May.

“We’re looking for one teenager from every borough in London who will be celebrating their 18th birthday on 3 May, to join us and help our campaign to get young people out on polling day and have their say in this important election.”

Contact @LondonElects, on Facebook or email to find out more and join the campaign.

Dame Tessa says use of the cameras must not be left to the discretion of officers and has called for the publication of clear guidance mandating their use for all stop & search incidents.

Khan’s spam attack on Goldsmith reveals double standards on foreign policy vow

It’s just a few weeks since Sadiq Khan vowed not to use the mayoralty “to offer commentary on foreign policy issues” but it seems the same promise doesn’t apply to his candidacy. Yesterday he emailed hundreds, possibly even thousands, of subscribers to his campaign newsletter with a tale of doom about Zac Goldsmith’s views on Europe.

    Yes its good to ‘Brainwash’ the Young into liking an EU inspired assembly. Of course Young people should have an interest in Politics,ut Questioning Why 6 million people are not on Voting register needs to be addressed first
