Bookmaker odds on Russell Brand for London mayor

Russell Brand's name has been linked to a campaign to run as London mayor in 2016, but his team has declined to comment on the speculation.

Bookmaker Alex Donohue described him as "the absolute rank outsider" and with odds at 200/1 for the contest. The bookie suggested other names who are far more likely to lead the field and get people making a bet.

On the Daily Politics, Jo Coburn got reaction form Tory Damian Green, Labour's David Blunkett and Lib Dem Lorely Burt to a potential Brand bid for power.
