Nick Ferrari to run against Ken?


There's a rumour going around that Nick Ferrari (the LBC 97.3 Breakfast show presenter) has decided to enter the planned Open primary to find a Conservative Party to run against against Ken Livingstone at the next mayoral election in 2008. Nick has been mulling it over on his blog and his show over the past week (even inviting people to call in and ask him questions).

Nick Ferrari would, I'm sure, make an excellent mayor and be a breath of fresh air to London after being under the control of Red Ken for so long. The biggest challenge we face as a party against Ken is his high profile. Nick Ferrari, has a high eneough profile to match Ken.

All Nick has to do is get through the primary, which, if the rumours are true, could include Sir John Stevens.

With the frighteneing array of additional powers the Mayor was given yesterday, there needs to be serious candidates. Unfortunately, although I like Nick, i'd put him in the Frank Maloney catergory.

Now Sir John, he would be good. After all he's the only recent police commissioner to respected whilst in office, and after he left it.

I didn't realise Nick Ferrari was so fat!
Near enough anyone would be preferable to Livingstone. Always was a fan of Jeffrey Archer myself and I'm not even a Tory ...

I think the freemasons have quite enough control as it is.
