Boris slams lack of Olympic tickets
The Mayor of London has said "b******s" to the limited number of Olympics press passes allocated to Your Local Guardian.
On Friday, during a visit to Clapham Junction station, he promised reporters covering the Games on behalf of people living in south London would have access to all areas if he was re-elected.
Boris Johnson said he was still working on securing all-area press passes so your local newspaper can cover the Olympics properly.
Since we began campaigning on this issue in September, Your Local Guardian newspapers has secured just two passes – one allowing access to the tennis at Wimbledon, the other to Hampton Court for the cycle road race.
Mr Johnson said: "You will have access to all areas if I am Mayor. B******s to numbers, we'll sort you out."
He made the announcement when he visited Clapham Junction Station to launch his Back Boris campaign for the upcoming mayoral election.
The Mayor took a stroll down St John's Road, speaking to businesses affected by the August disorder and popped in to speak to diners in Starbucks.
He also gave backing to the newspaper's air pollution campaign to get cleaner buses operating in Putney High Street.
He said: "We are buying in the cleanest, greenest buses in Europe that will reduce emissions.
"They are 40 per cent cleaner, with new engines and cleaner taxis.
"I also brought in phase three of the Low Emissions Zone, which stops the most polluting vans in London."
Voting for the Mayor of London elections takes place on May 3.
Meanwhile, our poll to gauge feeling as the mayoral race gets underway, is showing Boris out in the lead.
