Conservative Mayoral hopeful Syed Kamall has received a major boost for his campaign after being endorsed by Parliament Street, one of the UK’s leading think tanks.

In an upcoming announcement, the organisation heaps praise on the London MEP, arguing that his candidacy will give the Conservatives the best shot to defeat Labour’s candidate Sadiq Khan.

Parliament Street head of campaigns Clare Ambrosino said, “Syed’s affinity with the people of London and his understanding of how all communities can be helped to aspire made his candidature so appealing to us.

“If Syed Kamall's bid is successful, he will be a beacon for aspiration and social mobility to all Londoners and will use his knowledge of the city and its peoples to build a community, which fulfills these needs. He will do this by encouraging people to achieve their dreams, not by relying on state intervention but on self-belief, aspiration and the spirit of enterprise,” she added.
