ZAC

The latest odds from Ladbrokes have Zac Goldsmith favourite to be the Tory candidate for Mayor:

Conservative Mayoral Candidate
Evens Zac Goldsmith

10/1 Stephen Greenhalgh
10/1 Michael Bloomberg

Justine Greening should be on that list too, but as Guido reported on Sunday, Tories back Zac:

“The rollie-smoking multi-millionaire greeny has a growing following, increasing his majority in Richmond, South West London, from 4,091 to a stonking 23,015 at the election. Green Party peer Baroness Jones is also keen on the idea, saying many Greens “very much like that he comes across as very green and committed and passionate”. Zac has promised to resign his seat and force a by-election if the Government approves expansion of Heathrow Airport this summer, potentially giving him the perfect platform to launch a bid for City Hall. A friend says: “He’ll only do it if he thinks it’s genuinely what his constituents want.”

The race is beginning to rumble behind the scenes…
