Having a Mayor: Debating Debates



Having a Mayor follows the thrills, spills, faffs and gaffes of the 2024 race for mayor of London, with BBC London’s Karl Mercer, Tim Donovan and Susana Mendonça discussing the latest issues, debates, candidates, campaigns and more.

This week, our panel are debating debates after the four main party candidates gathered in front of Londoners for a BBC London election programme.

Host Eddie Nestor joins the trio to give his take on what it’s like to front a debate programme.

We also go under the bonnet to discover one candidate’s first job… and find out how many steps they’ve been doing on the campaign trail.

We would like to hear your questions about the mayoral election, your thoughts, observations and – don’t be shy – your rants. WhatsApp the team on 08000 321 333 starting the message with “London”. Or email
