Shaun Bailey: The Conservative London Mayoral candidate on coming back to faith and tackling knife crime

January 3, 2020

In this week’s show Sam Hailes sits down the Conservative candidate for the 2020 London Mayoral election, Shaun Bailey. Although he grew up in a Christian family, Bailey soon turned his back on the Christian faith. In this interview he explains what brought him back, how Christians can be a force for good in politics and why his 20+ years of experience in youth work has prepared him for his political career.

We will also be publishing interviews with other candidates standing for election in 2020 in the coming weeks.
