Duwayne Brooks to run for GLA

Michael Crick | 12:42 UK time, Wednesday, 18 August 2010

Duwayne Brooks came up to me this morning and said that contrary to my blog of a few days ago, he is not going to try and become Lib Dem candidate for London Mayor.

Brooks was the best friend of Stephen Lawrence, and witnessed his horrific murder in 1993. In 2009 he was elected a Lib Dem councillor in Lewisham.

He may not have ambitions to become mayor, but he tells me that he does hope to run for the Greater London Assembly next time.

    There is no 'Greater London Assembly' the GLA is the Greater London Authority which comprises the Mayor of London and the London Assembly. I know it's a bit confusing but 10 years after it was established I would have thought the BBC would have got the hang of it.
