We’ll see your (History’s) Dick Whittington, Lord Mayor of London in the early 1400s, and raise you our own. David P. is Mayor of his own central London Borough, Islington. When he’s not wearing his ceremonial robes, he loves creating narratives about his adopted city, London, a skill he learnt working as an award-winning Producer in British television for over 20 years. He’s the former President of the London Royal Television Society and spent many years using his communication skills working for the European Union in Brussels and Strasbourg. For good measure, he has twice been to tea at Buckingham Palace.
