Cyclists have no problem going through red lights, metaphorical or otherwise.

Motorcyclists often in leather trousers have no problems speeding most days of the week!

He'll be a formidable opponent for Khan, that he has that Bohemian, Lawrence of Arabia toker vibe, he will appeal to the students.

Main issues to overcome

1 Knife crime
2 Poverty and inequality
3 Transport
4 Pollution and Green issues

I think Rory will fair pretty well in the polls to be honest. Probably better than any Conservative or Lib Dem candidate.

There will also be candidates from the London Independence party for the first time ever, going to be a slow process for them being a grassroots up organisation without big funds or celebrities but I welcome the idea of Londoners having much more say over London

If there was ever a quote fitting for Rory Stewart:

"I’m not arguing there are no decent people in the Tory party. But they’re like bits of sweetcorn in a turd; technically they’ve kept their integrity, but they’re still embedded in shit."
Iain Banks

I think because he's well liked and good with the media he gets hyped up a bit too much (Jess Phillips is the Labour version of this) when I doubt many people who aren't political in their social media habits have heard of him, he has no chance of winning the mayoral race but I suppose its smart to stay in the limelight and wait for the Tory party to reform and then return as a principled hero who took one for the team yadda yadda as they say.

It'll be a long wait, the Tory party are in thrall to the pensioner membership and are now a Brexit cult, just as Labour are in thrall to the momentum Tarquins and are a Corbyn cult. If the 2 parties in a 2 party system have no space for moderates (the majority of voters) then the 2 party system is too weak to continue.

They really are two sides of the same coin. Stewart a bit too liberal for the Tories, Phillips a bit too conservative for labour.

Rory Stewart is a bit of a joke candidate at the moment / I want to be Tory leader / I don't want to vote for tories in parliament / I want to leave the tories/ I want to give up my seat in Cumbria/ I want to be london mayor

Stewart can win a smaller victory by at least comprehensively smashing the official tory.
