Having very briefly met the ‘sofa surfing’ Rory Stewart in Pavilion Road yesterday, I must say I found him affable and open. We briefly discussed Shaun Bailey’s ludicrous policy of handing out burglar alarms to 300,000 households and today I urge London based readers to join me in backing his campaign to become the next Mayor of London.
South Kensington based Stewart, unlike his dimwitted Conservative counterpart and the frankly inept banger-on about being a son of a bus driver Sadiq Khan, is a man of action. Born in Hong Kong and educated at Eton and Oxford, here is someone who crosses divides and has been a member of both the Labour and Conservative parties. He has worked at the Foreign Office, been in command in battlezones, tutored Prince William and Harry and been lauded for his written and presentational work also. Here indeed is someone versatile and capable and quite frankly, at this time, this is just what London needs.
Stewart’s is clear about what he’d do: He would triple the number of police on the streets and he’d make housing more affordable by using public land for public benefit. These policies make sense and now is the time to help him get elected.
