The London Mayoral elections in the papers


Conservative Party hails new Tory London Mayor

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.

Boris, and the countless volunteers who gave their time and support to this campaign, can be immensely proud of what has been achieved.This is a victory for the Conservatives, a victory for a mayor who has devoted the last four years of his life to this city and, above all, a victory for London.

Reaction to Ken Livingstone's defeat

Len Duvall, the leader of the Labour group on the London Assembly, said he was "disappointed" at Mr Livingstone's defeat.

Labour has made significant gains on the London Assembly, unseating some of Boris' key lieutenants and came close to removing two more.

The Labour group on the London Assembly will scrutinise the Mayor and highlight his failing policies and his total lack of vision for our great city. If he thinks he can coast along for the next four years he is in for a rude awakening.
