This is what Boris was saying before the election (in a letter to Liz Kelly, Chair of End Violence Against Women)…

“The next Mayor of London must show leadership if we are to end this crime…It is absolutely evident that we must be doing more to help, support and promote the assistance that is given to women…If I am fortunate to be elected on 1st May, this matter will be a priority under my Mayoralty…Quite simply, I believe that it is more important to fund Rape Crisis Centres than press officers.”

This is how he’s acted since the elections (according to Yvonne Traynor, chief executive of the south London branch of Rape Crisis)…

“Boris Johnson did promise us sustainable funding for the next four years (pre his election) but since a meeting with the mayor’s office in October last year, we have not heard anything!”

Help to make him keep his promises (hat-tip, Alice Dale)…
