Who will be Westminster’s new council leader?

YOU know you are the Sir Billy Big-Stuffs of local authorities when Ladbrokes begin offering odds on who will be your next leader. They certainly don’t do that when Camden Council is looking for a new number one, however interesting those prices would be right now.

Westminster City Council – what Sir Alex Ferguson might describe as Camden’s ‘noisy neighbours – is a whole different world. There the Conservatives are searching for a replacement for Colin Barrow, who resigned on Saturday following that awful to-do about central London parking charges. The disclaimer at this point is always that the bookies were very, very wrong about Glenda Jackson’s win in Hampstead and Kilburn, so they do get turned over every now and then – but Edward Argar is way out in front on the list here. A chance for Phillipa Rowe fans to cash in?
