Ok I dont mean Mayor of London (for whom nominations for the Labour candidate are done and dusted with Oona vs Ken) or Elected Mayor of Tower Hamlets (which will be later this year with Labour’s internal battle raging as we speak) but the Deputy Mayoress position I’ve been carrying out in Ealing. Most recent engagements have been (i) officiating at a graden party of a Polish sheltered housing scheme for thr elderly in Acton and (ii) being present at the Hanwell carnival which may not be as famous as Rio or Notting Hill but has quietly notched up 50 years of continuation.

Longer Comment is Free post here. Contrary to the comments the chain in Ealing is not solid gold but on a ribbon making it look more akin to a Jim’ll Fix it badge…
