This really didn’t go very well; supremely wealthy Tory candidate for Mayor looked pretty out of touch with the city he wants to run during a TV interview.
The BBC’s Norman Smith asked Goldsmith which team play at Loftus Road, he had no idea (it’s QPR). Then he was asked the next type station going east on Central Line from Tottenham Court Road, he had no idea (it’s Holborn). He was finally asked where the Museum of London is, he had no idea, (It’s at Barbican). To be fair to him he did know the Barbican was near the City, the wealthy financial district, which is comforting.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
