I hope Ken Livingstone doesn't stand. He was Mayor for two terms before he was defeated and a major London figure before then. Not only that but given the last election campaign, we need a new face and someone who can wrong-foot the Tories and pick up on all their mistakes.
It would also be ideal for someone who is savvy and yet has no major political experience. Someone popular with the electorate, someone tough and yet respected. I am not sure yet whether he ought to stand, but I am attracted to the idea of London's next Mayor being Sir Alan Sugar.
And isn't this bit of news interesting!
