Sol Cambell may replace Sir Malcolm Rifkind as Tory MP
- Sol Campbell might run for Mayor in London
Former Arsenal defender Sol Campbell refuses to rule out the possibility of him standing for the Mayor’s seat, which is being vacated by Sir Malcolm Rifkind. The former English defender, who played most of his games in London, recently met with the Conservative Party chairman Grant Shapps, after rumours suggesting the defender could run for Mayor
Rifkind’s decision to retire after a cash-for-access controversy, has opened up a seat which could be filled in by Campbell. When asked if he wanted to be selected for Kensington the ex-footballer answered “Step by step. I think about a lot of things.”
Campbell who recently supported David Cameron’s in-out referendum on United Kingdom’s membership of EU, as long as the voters were well-informed had the following to say.
“It’s about going in there and getting the facts and figures and making sure the British people know what’s happening.
“I look at the Eurozone and I look at Germany – the only reason that Germany loves the euro is because they make so much money, because the mark was so expensive.”Published 01 Mar 2015, 20:46 IST
