THE FIGHT TO BE LONDON MAYOR: IT'S A WOMAN THING
Sunday 15 August 1999
Claim to fame: Penchant for removing clothes in films directed by Ken Russell.
Reason enough to vote for her? There's more. Also played a comic Cleopatra with Morecombe and Wise.
That seals it surely. Perhaps you should look at her record as junior transport minister.
Anything to worry about there? In almost 30 months of Labour government the Underground has got even worse, despite pledges by Glenda it was an immediate priority.
But the mess was inherited from the previous mob. Fair enough. And she has launched a campaign to get children to walk to school.
Other achievements? Turned twee Hampstead and Highgate into a rock-solid Labour seat.
A Blair Babe? Extremely loyal to Blair and John Prescott. Too loyal for own good, say her friends and has yet to get the recognition she really deserves.
At last, a fresh face in the race for mayor. Leading businesswoman, elected to the European Parliament, London region this year. MP for Dulwich and West Norwood since 1997. Former vice-president, Citibank, Chicago.
A future mayor who works in Brussels? Lives in the well-heeled London suburb of Barnes, actually.
The unified Liberal Democrat candidate? Won 62 per cent of the votes. Charles Kennedy praised her "impressive credentials".
Sounds a little dull. Far from it. Tries her hand at flamenco dancing and enjoys travel and reading.
Vote clincher?: "Give me six months and I would have the money together to put it into the Tube system."
London commuters have heard that one before. But she may actually mean it.
