Bertrand Delanoë, the Mayor of Paris, has travelled to London to help Ken kick off the final weekend of campaigning.
After arriving on the eurostar at St Pancras this morning, Ken and Bertrand campaigned in Islington, on Upper Street, and then held a press event in Westminster, with lots of press – especially French media based in London – turning out to ask the two Mayors about their work together.
Bertrand Delanoë ended his opening remarks at the press conference by endorsing Ken: “I think London needs a serious Mayor, because it is a very serious job”.
The two Mayors are now off to an event for French expats in London, so we’ll write more later on today.
Don’t forget – don’t leave the campaigning to the Mayor of Paris, join in now. The election is neck and neck and just a few hours of campaigning by you will make a real difference.
