Mike Read & the London Mayoralty
Last night I finally got to interview Mike Read on 18 Doughty Street. As regular readers will know, we had a couple of abortive starts! I have to say that I was impressed. Most people think that celebrities who try their hand at politics are inevitably useless and won't get anywhere. I won't pretend that some of his policy answers weren't a bit woolly, but he was able to articulate a vision for London which few of the other candidates I have interviewed have been able to do. You can see the full interview HERE. I've now interviewed virtually all the declared candidates apart from Andrew Boff and Nick Boles. Click on the following names if you'd like to see any of the archived interviews... Warwick Lightfoot, Richard Barnes, Victoria Borwick, Winston McKenzie & Simon Fawthrop.
