London Mayor Election: A day of Battle Busses and Bunnyhops

22 April 2021

he Evening Standard’s City Hall editor Ross Lydall joins the podcast with two weeks to go until London hits the ballot box for the mayoral election.

He’s been speaking to both Sadiq Khan and Shaun Bailey who have been campaigning in the city, with the Conservative candidate making up some ground in the polls although the Labour incumbent is far ahead.

We also hear from the Greens’ Sian Berry and Lib Dems’ Luisa Porritt who are trying to pick up votes as the big day looms.

And Ross tells us what happened when both Mr Khan and Mr Bailey asked to borrow his bike.
