GLA hopefuls

London Mayoral candidates in place, now a buzz about the candidates for London Assembly elections next year.
The Brent and Harrow constituency has never been short of dramatic events.
Navin ShahIn 2008, Navin Shah (Lab), a Harrow councillor at the time, beat the sitting GLA member Bob Blackman (Con), despite the Brent conservatives were not fully fragmented then.
In 2012, Navin Shah won again, this time beating an Asian Conservative candidate by a huge majority – the Conservative candidate was selected in his party’s hustings where councillor Hall, leader of the opposition Conservative group, failed, adding to her similar failure at the MP hustings in Harrow West before the 2010 general elections (Cllr Hall SH D2has only achieved political defeats since: Councils in 2010 and in 2014 where five sitting Tory councillors were defeated – 2 Harrow West by-elections in 2013 and 3 Tory Cllrs defected because of her leadership).
This time round, following are some of the possibilities for the Brent and Harrow constituency candidacy.
Navin Shah: Labour can’t retire this winning horse unless they declare his constituency as ‘female’ only to benefit a Tory candidate.
KDKishan Devani (Con) – somewhat local, who once described himself as a nephew of Lord Popat, has been unsuccessfully trying for all sorts of political openings – he tried to dislodge most respected sitting MP Keith Vaz in Leicester East in the 2015 general elections, and miserably lost.
HD2Hannah David (Con) – a Tory favourite: a soft face of the harsh Harrow Conservatives image who almost beat the sitting Harrow West MP Gareth Thomas at the 2015 general elections. She is very likely to be supported by the Harrow Conservative associations. She is also seen as someone who could pave way for Goldsmith, Conservative London Mayoral candidate. Both are from a similar background.
