Congratulations to Suzy, and commiserations to the other shortlisted candidates.

    Congratulations to Suzy.  We are all looking forward to working with Suzy to return Harlow to Labour

    This is how Boris Johnson speaks to those who dare to question him

Understandably, Labour Assembly Members wanted to question the Mayor on this, so Andrew Dismore put him on the spot. Boris did not take it well… This man wants to be Prime Minister.
