Introducing the On London Guide to the London Mayor and Assembly Elections, 2021

Campaigns have been launched, manifestos are being published and candidate line-ups are complete, but what will be the outcomes of this year’s pandemic-delayed London Elections – the contests for Mayor and the 25 Assembly seats – and what will they tell us about the political landscape of Greater London and the mood of its electorate at this time of national crisis and uncertainty?

The polls say that Labour’s Sadiq Khan is on course for a landslide win in the mayoral race and a second term at City Hall, but which Londoners and which parts of London will support him most and why? How and where can Conservative Shaun Bailey, currently in second place, close the gap? Will Liberal Democrat Luisa Porritt or the Green Party’s Sian Berry become bigger challengers to Khan? Will Labour strengthen its already strong position on the Assembly, perhaps by gaining constituencies at the Conservatives’ expense in West Central, Croydon & Sutton in the south or Havering & Redbridge in the east?

The On London Guide to the London Mayor and London Assembly Elections, 2021 is a comprehensive 80-page, PDF document which addresses all those questions and many more with the help of key facts, figures and charts, profiles of candidates and seats, and summaries of the powers and influence of Mayors and Assembly Members, all in the context of the 21-year history of the Greater London Authority and the current national government’s conspicuous and politically-motivated hostility to it.

Compiled by me, Dave Hill, and top elections analyst Lewis Baston, the Guide in its fully-updated form is now on general sale.
