London's Mayor Is Back In Labour's Fold

Tony Blair took a big bite of humble pie on Jan. 6 when he gave the green light for maverick London Mayor Ken Livingstone to be readmitted to the Labour Party. Livingstone was booted out in 2000 when he was denied Labour's endorsement for mayor and ran as an independent, trouncing Labour's candidate. Then, Blair warned that Livingstone would be a "disaster" for London. Now he says he was wrong.

Livingstone's biggest success has been his scheme to charge fees to drivers in central London, which has reduced congestion. He is the odds-on favorite to win this June's mayoral election, and Blair probably figured it was better to bring him back now rather than lose to him again. EDITED BY Edited by Rose Brady
