London Mayor : LibDems No Hope, Tory Mayor Hopefuls

The LibDems have matched the Tories finally. Matched their inability to find a Mayoral candidate that is, Iain Dale reminds us that the LibDems were supposed to announce a shortlist of London Mayoral candidates yesterday. Silence.

So despite, in the words of Simon Hughes, “casting their net far and wide in our search for a candidate to represent our diverse capital” they struck out in their talent search. Mind you look at the motley crue that have now come forward for the Tories. Guido is not sure this is even the complete list:

Richard Barnes No web site as of yet.
Andrew Boff
Nick Boles
Victoria Borwick
Lurline Champaignie
Simon Fawthrop
Peter Hobbins No web site as of yet.
Warwick Lightfoot
Winston McKenzie
Mike Read No web site as of yet.
Lee Rotherham

Some of them are very strange indeed. God help London.

Quote of the Day

Boris responds to Tusk…

“I don’t want a No Deal Brexit but I say to our EU friends if they don’t want No Deal they have got to get rid of the backstop from treaty. If Donald Tusk doesn’t want to go down in history as Mr No Deal Brexit then I hope this point will be borne in mind by him too.”
