Boris on Best Behaviour…

Boris-mania is brewing in Brum. With the Mayor on his way, out-riders close to the team are pre-smoothing feathers:

He’s going to be on best behaviour, but then he always says that.”

No pressure then.

        Boris has one big advantage if he wanted to make his move that is he hasn’t been in this government, I wonder if that was his plan, do another 31/2 years as mayor, Cammers loeses the 2015 election, Lie bore get in but with 15-20 overall majority, Libdems virtually gone back to 10mps Liebore fall flat on their faces trying to implementing already tried and failed policies, Liebore due to a reducing majority are forcced to calla GE and Boris walks into no. 10

        Probably lifted from Wikipedia as below
        Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson (born 19 June 1964) is a British Conservative Party politician, who was first elected Mayor of London in 2008. Initially coming to public attention as a journalist, he was previously editor of The Spectator magazine (1999-2005) and the Member of Parliament for Henley from the 2001 general election to 2008.

        Johnson was educated at Primrose Hill Primary School, the European School of Brussels, Ashdown House School, Eton College, and Balliol College, Oxford, where he read Literae Humaniores.[3] He began his career in journalism with The Times and later moved on to The Daily Telegraph, where he became Assistant Editor. During his period in the House of Commons, Johnson became one of the most conspicuous politicians in the country. He has also written several books.

        Under Michael Howard, Johnson served on the Conservative front bench as the Shadow Minister for the Arts (April-November 2004). When David Cameron was elected leader of the Conservative Party in 2005, Johnson was re-appointed to the front bench as Shadow Minister for Higher Education and resigned as Editor of The Spectator.
