Brent East
Labour hold

Constituency Profile by Robert Waller
After becoming the first directly-elected Mayor of London on 4 May 2000 on an independent ticket, it took Ken Livingstone just two months to decide to announce that he was standing down as Labour MP for Brent East after 13 years, clearly disillusioned with the lack of influence that a (very controversial) backbencher could wield therein. His successor is likely to cause the party less grief in every way, but may not replicate the colourful nature and career of "Red Ken", whose rather unhappy sojourn in Parliament now seems more and more like a temporary blind alley between two periods of what he has enjoyed most and found most fulfilling: running the nation's capital and his home city.

Personality Profile by Byron Criddle
With the departure of London's Mayor to star in if not 'Dick Whittington and his Cat', at least in 'Ken Livingstone and his Newt', Labour, are fielding Brent Council Leader, Paul Daisley. Born 1957 and educated at Littlemore School, Oxfordshire and Abingdon College, he joined Labour in 1982, was elected to Brent Council in 1990, became Leader of the Council in 1996 and describes himself as being "responsible for transforming Brent into a model Labour authority". It previously could not have been much worse.
