Boris Johnson breaks employment promise

From The Pink Paper:

Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, will not be entering the Greater London Authority as a candidate for Stonewall’s annual Top 100 employers list, PinkPaper.com can reveal.

The news comes as a surprise considering that the authority – which is based at City Hall – was ranked second in 2008 and third in 2009.

The decision has also contradicted a former promise by Johnson who, in response to a previous question, said the GLA would be entered for 2010…

Dee Doocey, the Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member [said], “Last Summer Boris Johnson’s office was in such a mess at City Hall that they failed to enter the GLA into the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index, despite the GLA’s record of regularly entering in the past. Now we discover that Boris Johnson will not even honour his commitment to enter the GLA in future years.

“The Mayor’s decision is a regressive decision and sends an appalling message out to employers across London.”
