Paddick to Run for London Mayor?
So the latest non-Tory to be touted for the London mayoralty is Brian Paddick, the deputy assistant commissioner of the Met who is retiring in July. Like Greg Dyke, he is said to have Liberal Democrat sympathies. Unlike Greg Dyke, though, he has hinted in the past that he might be rather keen on a political career. He's certainly got some of the right attributes, although staying loyal to a party line might be a test for him.
