Rory Stewart’s mayoral bid, PLUS did Boris Johnson write a pitch for Hollywood?

In today’s episode of The Leader we discuss Rory Stewart’s bid for London Mayor. He announced live from the Millennium Bridge today that he is going to “sort the City out”. Our political editor Joe Murphy is Intrigued…

Also, Matt Majendie tells us why London should host the 2027 World Athletics Championships. This city has recently hosted both the 2012 Olympics and the 2017 Athletics World Championships, so why not?

And.. *drum roll* Boris Johnson’s Hollywood bid! The script he wrote, with a role for Scarlett Johansson. We’re genuinely not making that up – Emily Sheffield’s seen the pitch, and takes us through it.
