Maverick posh (ex)Tory Rory Stewart has launched the latest stunt to kickstart his failing campaign for London Mayor.
The former Conservative MP, who injected last year’s Tory leadership race with his idiosyncratic weirdness, wants to learn about your London life… by staying in your home.
Posting on social media earlier today, Stewart announced his “Come Kip With Me” campaign, where the Eton-educated former spy (maybe) lurks around your house, eats all your food and leaves without paying any bills*
*he does promise to bring a sleeping bag and chocolates.
Stewart, who until recently was MP for Penrith and the Border, says that sleeping on people’s couches is the only way to truly get to know London.
“It’s a weird request but the way that Mayors get to know their cities is by literally walking through every one of the 32 boroughs. Being in other people’s shoes, seeing through their eyes, staying in their houses.”
We do wonder why he can’t just stay in an Airbnb.
WHO WE ARE
We write news that exposes the deception of populism and the hypocrisy of the elites who peddle it. We run campaigns that allow us to work together to fight back.
We hate Brexit. We hate Boris. We hate the far-right. We want climate action, the end of austerity, and a pro-European future.
Press for change.
