Podcast: London Blues, #2

By Jonn Elledge

And so to the second of our London Tory mayoral candidate interviews.

This time it’s Joy Morrissey: an American-born Ealing councillor, former staffer at Iain Duncan Smith’s Centre for Social Justice, and private renter. She tells me how she got into the race largely to talk about housing policy, which lies at the root of the city’s other social problems – and how she didn’t entirely expect to make it this far.

Ideally there would be a part three of this series, in which I spoke to the third candidate in the race, Greater London Assembly member Shaun Bailey. There won’t be, at least for the moment: Shaun has so far not been available. Should that change, however, you’ll be the first to know.

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