On 22nd April 2008, Live! and stoic tv once again teamed up, this time to bring you a live broadcast from the London Mayoral Hustings at the University of London Union. Proceedings started slightly late, at 19:10, due to one of the candidates being held up in traffic. The event was fully booked, but people from around London took the opportunity to view the stream on-line.
In case you missed it, we have the full 90 minutes of proceedings as a recording, which you can watch using the embedded player at the end of this article. The video contains some extra interviews, including trying to solve the mystery of "Where's Boris?", reasons why people are voting for their preferred candidates and post-hustings interviews with Ama Ozowuru from the NUS and Mark Clarke, who was standing in for Boris. A four-part interview with Sian Berry was conducted by stoic tv in February and is now available online. Each part is ten minutes long.
The candidates attending the event were:
- Ken Livingstone (Labour)
- Mark Clarke on behalf of Boris Johnson (Conservative)
- Brian Paddick (Liberal Democrat)
- Sian Berry (Green)
- Lindsey German (Left List)
Brian Paddick, Boris Johnson and Sian Berry have sent us their "Manifesto for Students", while Ken Livingstone failed to do so. Lindsey German was not contacted because no email address was readily available.
