The Steeple Times backs Zac Goldsmith as the Conservative candidate to be Mayor of London
London needs a strong mayor and a worthy successor to Boris Johnson. With Sol Campbell sadly out of the running, that man now has to be Zac Goldsmith.
Today, in backing Zac Goldsmith we accept there are flaws to his beliefs. We do not support his views on the proposed third runway at Heathrow, but given Labour’s success in London in the General Election, it is essential that the Conservative Party have a candidate who can win. Out of the four on the shortlist, only one name resonates and that name is Zac Goldsmith.
Goldsmith will be good for London because he is independent minded. He has shown courage and resolve in speaking out – along with Labour MPs Simon Danczuk and John Mann – about historic VIP child abuse and is one of the few MPs untainted by allegations of financial sleaze. Like Mayor Bloomberg in New York, he is of independent means and like Boris Johnson before him, he is a larger than life character.
Today, The Steeple Times urges readers to back Zac Goldsmith in 2016. London needs him.
