Two New Labour Candidates Emerge In Mayoral Contest

So, we spoke too soon. Ken Livingstone and Oona King are not alone in pursuit of the Labour nomination for Mayor. According to the BBC, two newcomers have entered the fray: party activists Seton During and Emmanuel Okoro. What do we know about these two? During is a 'chartered engineer and a former councillor in Enfield' (according to his CV, he's "Quite adept at services delivery costs reductions without threatening statutes and standards whilst sustaining customers/clients satisfactions." We're not sure what that means, but it sounds like it might be useful.). Emmanuel Okoro, meanwhile, is an artist with a strong line in community outreach. This shortlist will be confirmed next Thursday, and a decision announced on 24 September.
