GET UPDATES FROM Ken Livingstone
Ken is standing to be Mayor of London in 2012 to put London first and use his experience of office to get the most from what will be a difficult economic and political time for Britain and for London.

Ken Livingstone was London’s first elected mayor from May 2000. An elected Mayor for the capital saw devolved government restored after fourteen years without a strategic authority and voice for London.
