Who would you least like to spend the evening with? And, please, no jokes about your mother-in-law. But this game has a snag, too. The definitive list has, I’m afraid, already been drawn up. It can’t be topped. Game over. Allow me to introduce you to the candidates running for London mayor. By my count, there are 19 of them, which
