28 Portland Place


10 December 2009



The current season of Speakers Breakfasts ended on Thursday 10th December with a colourful debate between Ken Livingstone and David Davis MP at 28 Portland Place.

Biding his time before attempting to win back City Hall in 2012, Ken is working on his autobiography, hosting a radio phone-in and supporting constituency Labour parties in their preparations for next year’s campaign. When we asked him recently how the public might regain trust in politicians, he said it would be “by voting for people like me.”

David was Shadow Home Secretary before resigning and re-capturing his seat in 2008, with a resounding 72% share of the vote. He has a background in science, business and the Territorial Army – and served as Europe Minister under John Major – but he’s now firmly positioned as an independently minded backbencher with a particular interest in civil liberties.
