Brent North Labour nominate Sadiq Khan and Tessa Jowell for London Mayor

Brent North CLP followed Brent Central in nominating Sadiq Khan tonight for Labour's London Mayoral candidate tonight. However, they backed Tessa Jowell for the female nomination. Brent Central has nominated Diane Abbott.

A correspondent has helpfully listed the Brent Labour councillors backing Khan. They are:

Cllr Muhammad Butt
Cllr Michael Pavey
Cllr Abdifatah Aden
Cllr Aisha Eniola
Cllr James Deneslow
Cllr Aslam Choudhry,
Cllr Kana Naheerathan
Cllr Amer Agha
Cllr Krupesh Hirani
Cllr Aisha Hoda-Benn
Wilhelmina Mitchell-Murray
Cllr Sarah Marquis
Cllr Arshad Mahmood

Cllr Roxanne Mashari. Cllr Margaret McLennan and Cllr Eleanor Southwood are three members of the Cabinet not backing Khan - at least on Khan's website.

    Tessa Jowell has at least actually done things for London, and has an independent turn of mind. Someone I'd perhaps support, which probably means the Brent Labour sheeple won'r.

  2. Roxanne Mashari has been enthusiastically tweeting support for Tessa Jowell

  3. Looking at that list something smells of Butt

  4. Are the Lib Dems running someone for Mayor Alison?

    1. Mayor Alison has a ring to it

      Hm. Doesn't it just. ;)

      Yes, there will be a Lib Dem candidate, not chosen yet.

    3. Like it matters...

  5. Tessa Jowell has a great record of delivering for Londoners, like overspending on the Olympics by £6.4 billion. FOUR times the original budget.

      I started off thinking that, but given the mega success they were... well, worth while, perhaps.

  6. Isn't a nomination from Butt like he Kiss of Death?
