Oona for Mayor?

Mayor Oona King?

Oona King today gives a pitch for the London mayoral nomination.

What do you think of the piece? What are the issues that Oona, Ken and other contenders need to address?

“I think Londoners want a mayor who has some personality, who is not always going to stick to a script, and who says what she thinks. But that has to be linked to an understanding of quite how high the stakes are . . .

You need a serious heavyweight for London, someone who can champion London’s causes and make sure that we are on the map in a global sense, but then also be able to deal with the day-to-day reality of the safer neighbourhood teams, the rubbish collection, and the strategic powers the mayor has. You need a serious politician.”
