Podcast: London Blues, #1

By Jonn Elledge

There are three people on the shortlist to be the Conservative candidate for London mayor in the 2020 election. So this week, we’re speaking with them.

First up: Andrew Boff, a long-serving member of the Greater London Assembly and former leader of Hillingdon council, who has run for this particular gig five times now.

Andrew tells me why housing targets should focus on bedrooms, not front doors; why he believes stop and search remains a valuable part of the Metropolitan Police’s work; and why Sadiq Khan’s war on the motorcyclist is a very real problem for the capital.

Tomorrow we’ll be back with the second part of this series, talking to his rival, Joy Morrissey. 

The episode itself is below. You can subscribe to the podcast on AcastiTunes, or RSS. Enjoy.
