sometime in the future?

Why a "danger" you might ask.......

Well, IMHO he's doing a fantastic job as mayor at the moment, but he may feel he can accomplish more by climbing the political ladder.  So there's a danger that climbing the ladder would inevitably see him spending a lot less time being devoted to matters concerning this area and delegating his projects!

I could quite easilysee him standing at the despatch box in the H.O.C.

He's not even an MP yet - although the spot at Hartlepool may be tempting?

I'm thinking more in Middlesbrough, running against McDonald.

That isn't such a fairytale. Andrew MacDonald is on borrowed time and has relied upon the strong labour vote to retain his leadership. The labour vote in Teesside is remarkably being turned around. I have to admit, I never thought I would see it happen, but next council election could be very interesting.

No fairytale whatsoever.

That's why Mr.Invisible is considering his position and possibly won't stand. His only worry is being replaced by a Steir Karmer Keir Starmer appointee.
