"The Mayor of London and the London Assembly have shown once again that they know how to interact with ordinary people, by offering a choice of channels through which the general public can communicate with them" says Incentivated Managing Director, Jonathan Bass. "We expect a considerable increase in the volume of questions and issues put to the Mayor and London Assembly at the next meeting. Text messaging makes it easy and accessible for all Londoners."
