Boris win a 'historic result'

This is an historic result. The greatest city in the world has re-elected a Conservative mayor.

Boris Johnson's re-election is a testament to the way he has connected with Londoners; to his modern, inclusive approach; and his clear vision for a safer, greener, more prosperous London.

In the coming weeks and months the eyes of the world will be upon the capital, as we host the Olympic and Paralympic Games and we are at the centre of celebrations for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. In Boris, London has a mayor with the authority, presence and charisma to represent this great city on the world stage.
