Can anyone fill me in on the role of the LDA? Yes, I'm aware of the official statement on what they do but I want to look behind that and specifically at their links with the Mayor. I'm told the LDA was set up as a slush fund by Labour who didn't expect Ken to get in but anticipated a Labour Mayor. The sums of money they have at their disposal are huge and they do not seem to be very accountable. Has anyone any more info? PM me if necessary.
