Kate Hoey is a Labour politician with some integrity, a rare breed. Her views on Northern Ireland put her beyond the pale for many Labour bigots and in recent years I have wondered whether she and Frank Field would not be happier in the Conservative party. Today I learn that if elected Mayor, Boris Johnson would have her join his administration as a Non Executive Director in charge of promoting competitive sport and monitoring the Olympics. A good choice Boris.
