Like Boris Johnson, Ed Miliband also backs the living wage campaign, and according to the London Standard, he wanted to make the campaign a cross party initiative jointly with Boris. Swiftly the word came back from City Hall, “Thanks, but no thanks!”
On this video, Boris explains exactly why it is good business sense to raise the minimum wage. Oddly enough, when the Daily Mirror reported on the living campaign today, it was all about Ed, no mention of Boris!
Ed Miliband was pushing for a measly £8.30 London living wage according to the Mirror, but Boris has already fixed it for Londoners that the London living wage is £8.55. An extra £36 per month on a 37 our week will come in handy, in hard times. A list of London companies who pay London Living wage is here.
Outfoxed again, Ed! Your childish attempts to embarrass David Cameron will never be backed by Boris. It’s clear all round that voters are better off with Boris who sticks to the issues, instead of wasting time being spiteful and petty. ! The Sun here describes how Boris gave Ed the cold NO!
ps. For the third time, Boris Johnson is voted most influential Londoner, over the PM, George Osborne, our Queen, Seb Coe, in fact over 999 others!
