Labour party member as a teenager. Remainer but supporter of May's deal. has a genuinely interesting hinterland, lots of meaningful real life experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan and some real intellectual depth. Looks a little odd but heck, best of a pretty appalling bunch of potential candidates by a distance.

Stewart's a bright guy so he may improve but so far shown that frontline politics isn't for ingenues winging it even if they've been successful in other areas of life (see also Heidi Allen). Stewart has already managed to make himself an international laughing stock with his gaffes

Stewart reveals he is standing for London Mayor to build a base to oppose the drift to Trumpian politics. So his first move in this strategy is to oust Sadiq Khan. He’s a bit shambolic but nice Rory appears to be striking a chord with non-Tory voters who haven’t seen the policies he’s supported.

As I said to someone during the leadership debate, whilst directing them at Stewart's voting record: we've reached a stage in our political discourse where it's easy to assume that someone is on our own side, just because they can have a civil exchange of views with us.
