As ballots hit our door matts, l’m backing Ken as our Mayoral candidate for 2012.
My support for Ken was made clear early on in this campaign. Not only are “Ken” and “London” synonymous, his vision for London is a London wide one, and not just targeted at either inner London or the suburbs. Also, support for Ken is broadly based across all of London Labour politics. He is supported by all the various party leadership candidate backers in London and by many Councillors and Trade Unionists of varying shades of red.
This vision and breadth of support offered by Ken will formulate the type of coalition that will, not only give us the unity of purpose to win back the Mayoralty in 2012, but also, a major platform on which Labour can build its return to national government.
