Ex-Tory leadership candidate and prominent remainer Rory Stewart has today pulled out of the race to become London Mayor. Rory started by saying: I’ve decided after a lot of thought that I will not be running in the delayed and extended election to be mayor of London next year.
Rory said: “It’s a very difficult decision and it’s hugely disappointing for me as I imagined it may well be for you. It’s been difficult. It’s been driven partly by coronavirus. It’s been driven also of course by the difficulties of keeping a campaign going properly for another 12 months.”
Rory continues to say: “London remains the greatest city on earth. It would have been the greatest privilege of my life to be the mayor of London, to run London and be able to work with you in London.”
Rory ended by saying: “It has been a great, great privilege to work with you, and this comes with the deepest and most profound gratitude.”
