According to TimeOut. Mr C will be delighted that he has ousted that ageing lefty - Ken Livingstone from the top spot.
Here are some key extracts from DC's interview with TimeOut:
- "When Cameron speaks, people listen. And on many issues – crime, the environment, health, education – he now sets the agenda in London. So much so he has knocked Ken Livingstone from the top of the annual Time Out Movers & Shakers list, and ‘beating Ken Livingstone’, he admits as we walk to the car, ‘has been a bit of a problem up to now’. An understatement given his party’s disastrous failure to find a suitable candidate to stand in the next mayoral election."
- "Cameron won’t name any closet Tories he might favour because he thinks it would harm their chances, admitting he told one prospective candidate he wouldn’t publicly back him because ‘there’s only one thing worse than being on the A-list and that’s being seen as a favoured candidate of mine’."
- "Aware of the credibility challenge his background presents, Cameron goes out of his way to connect himself with ordinary people’s concerns – like transport – though he can sound like Prince Charles . ‘The tube is incredibly difficult,’ he says, ‘because it is carved up. The Hammersmith & City Line, that’s my local one, not hugely reliable, you know. If you’re going east-west, it can be good.’ Which is, I suppose, a reasonable explanation of what it does."
- "I wonder about his cycling style. Aggressive? ‘I’m not a bonnet-slapper. I have occasionally done that thing that all cyclists do – not entirely stopping at every red light.’ Not entirely? ‘I might have continued slowly, but I try and obey the Highway Code.’"
