The UK General Election - 4th July 2024


PLMR’s Week Ahead in Wesminster: 5th December

Who will win Labour's next two races?

Over the coming weeks and months the Scottish Labour Party will name their next leader and in England, their London Mayoral candidate will also be chosen.

Rob Comba speaks to Felicity Cooke from Dods and Kevin Craig, PLMR’s Managing Director and Labour Councillor in the London Borough of Lambeth.

Jim Murphy is the favourite to become the next leader of Scottish Labour. Is he guaranteed to win?

Felicity says that people would be wrong to rule out Sarah Boyack, who is a popular MSP

And in London, who’s in the race to become Labour’s Mayoral candidate?

Kevin says there are three clear front runners: Sadiq Khan, Tessa Jowell and David Lammy

What about Diane Abbott?

Despite being an ‘impressive politician’, Kevin doesn’t believe she has the reach across London to secure the nomination

Sadiq Khan is the Shadow Minister for London, does that make him favourite?

Kevin doesn’t see it that way, he thinks Tessa Jowell is the current front-runner.

Does that mean she’ll win the nomination?

Kevin thinks she will be the Mayoral candidate and will go on to become the Mayor in 2016.
