If Labour is to have a hope of ousting Johnson, it is going to need a big name. Ideally it would like someone with the politics of Polly Toynbee and the public profile of Jeremy Clarkson. That's why, in the absence of a politician, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the following names were floated in Labour circles over the coming months - Ross Kemp, Arsene Wenger, Ian Blair, Alistair Campbell, Andrew Marr, Cherie Booth, Shami Chakrabarti. Other suggestions welcome.Labour are doomed.
Update: In the comments 'Killing Time' comes up with:
Diane Abbott would do it for me. Principled, cool and foxy too.
