Labour nominations for Mayor revealed

The full list of Labour nominations for London Mayor has been revealed.

And contrary to what you may have read in the past two years Alan Johnson isn't on the list.


Tessa Jowell and Diane Abbot aren't on the list either, and there isn't a sitting Assembly Member, MP or Councillor in sight.

So after all that, which Ken-stoppers have bravely put themselves forward?

Full list of nominees:

Ken Livingstone

Oona King

Seton During

Emmanuel Okoro


Mr During said he had 20 years of sea-going experience as a chartered marine engineer, and had served as a councillor for Ponders End on Enfield Council from 1990 to 1994.

If elected as mayor, he promised to "improve the qualities of life and wellness for all Londoners".

Ok...

Mr Okoro could not be reached for comment.

Right then. Let the Ken-stoppers commence!

I'm afraid not. I tried my best.

Here's hoping the people of London have the good sense not to indulge Labour in another of their typically undemocratic coronations.

Gramps Livingstone is far better off doing his radio show and pottering about the garden.

(...the word verification of this comment is "failooni". Apt.)

"failooni"

I would never think of you in those terms AofE.

On coronations it's not just Labour who like to take part in such things as anyone who saw the lineup for the Conservatives and Lib Dems last selection processes for Mayor could tell you.
