The courage of one's convictions

Nosing around the Standard's pages on the London assembly elections, it would appear that the London Greens are going to be in a terrible pickle come the 2nd of May, as Sian Berry, its candidate for the mayoralty is also on its London-wide top up list - in fourth. Given that they had three top up members between 2000 and 2004, four greens in the assembly - horrifying though that prospect is - is not quite within the realms of science fiction. Maybe they will just meditate until the problem goes away.

Similarly, the People's Party also seems to lack confidence in the electability of its slate, in that its top up list is the same as its list of seat candidates. Given that Felicia Nicolette Gavron is NOT going to win Barnet & Camden if the Socialists could not last time round, this seems a wise, if somewhat gutless precaution. I wonder why she has tired of Enfield & Haringey, her old stomping ground

With a name like that I suspect that Ms Gavron is *not* one of those desirable ordinary working-class women...

She married well....

Did she change her "given names" at the time too???


Blogger Croydonian said... 5:22 pm

Could well be. By rights she ought to be Felicia Coates, if ex husband had got his name back in the settlement.

Meanwhile, note the rather thin biography chez elle.

Tempted to give her a ring to ask for further and better particulars - he number is listed, which is quite bold.

From Wikipedia "Bob Gavron was a financial contributor to the Labour Leader's Office Fund run by Lord Levy to finance Tony Blair's private office before the 1997 General Election. Gavron received a life peerage as Baron Gavron, of Highgate in the Borough of Camden on 6 August 1999."
