We have just days left to ensure that on 1 May the fight starts for a different London – one not in thrall to City financiers and bankers, one where ordinary people come first.

Every vote for myself for mayor and for the Left List in the London assembly elections is a vote for that other London.

My campaign has touched a nerve. People love to hear someone speaking up for working class Londoners.

It is a message that has reached millions of people, both through our pages in the mayoral candidate’s booklet, and also in the highly effective Left List party political broadcast that was aired this week.

In the remaining days of the campaign we need to be fighting for every vote.

On Thursday I will be visiting picket lines to meet with striking teachers, lecturers and civil servants. Later I will join their joint march in central London. On Sunday I will be speaking at the Love Music Hate Racism carnival in Victoria Park, east London.

On Friday I will be visiting supporters in two hospitals and a bus garage in north west London.

Good vote

If you can secure me an invitation to speak in your workplace, pensioners’ club, place of worship, or with parents outside your local primary school, I will be delighted to come along to put my message.

At lunchtimes, rush hour and on the final weekend of the campaign we need to get out leafleting markets, shopping centres and tube stations.

Left List candidates will be out on our streets meeting and listening to ordinary Londoners.

Each day Left List supporters need to be canvassing all those who have voted for us in previous elections and leafleting homes in wards where we secured a good vote.

Every Left List vote is precious – and we must leave no stone unturned to mobilise our supporters.

You can watch the Left List broadcast on the web – go to » www.lindsey4london.org

Come to the Left List pre‑election rally on Thursday 24 April, 6.30pm, Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London WC1. Speakers include Mark Serwotka, Lindsey Germany, Jane Loftus, Oliur Rahman
