BoJo’s Road to Downing Street

Interesting story in the Sun this morning that Boris is considering changing his mind about a third term as London mayor and may run again in 2016. Not even BoJo’s biggest fan would take past assurances that this would be his final term too seriously. This is Boris after all. Looking ahead there is a clear road to Downing Street. If Cameron is still Prime Minister after 2015, as Labour are clearly determined to make happen, that would obviously dash Boris’ hopes of becoming leader post-election. Boris wouldn’t want to serve in a Dave Cabinet, so running for a third term as Mayor would keep him on the front line. Then, in the run up to 2020, the handover would make perfect sense. It could be Blair and Brown all over again…

    Gordon the medicated says:

    I shall retie from my positions as head of the UN, the world bank, Médecins Sans Frontières in 2018 and seek my reelection as Prime Minister of the UK for 2020.

    I shall still be retaining my zero hours counter clerk position at the Fife Poundland in case…well…you know…it all goes like it did the last time.

    This is simply not news

    I am troughing big time with the bankers and assorted scum in the City

    Fucking billions floating around just for the take,man

    Why on earth would I get involved with all that shyt at No 10?

    And just look at Dave

    Even the Tory Party has realised that he is a wannabe imposter

    No one would ever call me a Poodle

    A Banger, yes

    A Buffon, yes

    A Bullshitter, yes

    But never a Poodle

    do we really want a prime minster who is such a clown . In London he has built a cable car that goes from nowhere to nowhere , a bike scheme which cost £1500 per bike p.a . What London needs , and so does all England is a further crossing east of the Dartford Crossing . Plus a major upgrade to the M25 , M20 and M2 .In the short term how about a ferry crossing from Sheerness to Southend .

    Point of Information 4 says:

    That would be like putting a non-knitting version of Gillard in power.

    Isn’t the idea to get change from Dave ?

    But +10 for the eye-candy suggestion.

    Boris’ path to Number 10 will be littered with girls with their knickers round their ankles.

    It would be good to have someone as PM who doesn’t obsess about bumboys and lezzas.

    Dr Spock, the Downing Street vet says:

    I was called in yesterday, Guido, on a top secret mission

    There is a poodle in Downing Street whose bark has suddenly and mysteriously disappeared

    I inspected his balls, nothing there

    It seems to be mental problem

    Never seen that before

    Unless of course Boris joins UKIP and then in your eyes he would become “a man of the people”!

    Boris wants an amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants.
    He is no more UKIP than Tory and should not be welcome in either party.

    He is a liberal loving social democrat in hock to the non native colonising London population.

    The man is a repeat wife cheater and arrogent bafoon who would sooner send this country down the pan if it furthered his own career.

    Stay well clear and avoid like dog poo on the pavement.

    Boris is a truly despicable UK hating arrogant fool.

    It is time for the Conservative Party to kick out all of these Hooray Henry play boys and get back to serious Politics, the Public are fed up with them, three cheers for Nigel Farage !!

    Cameron says:

    What about gay marriage, massive subsidies for diesel powered electricity generators to stop the lights going out and sucsessfully closing all the UK’s gas and coal fired power stations so that electricty bills will double in the next 10 years.

    Now thats what I call progress and a legacy that poor people can remember me by, oh and being a war mongering lying cast iron traitourous commie loving bs’tard in love with the EU.

    Toodle pip.

    the majority dipping into their savings or payday loans to survive.
    3 million parttime workers wanting full time hours.
    250,000 0 hour contracts
    Energy and fuel prices the highest ever

    The idea that the economy is working for anyone but the rich is a complete and utter bust

    Exactly, giving Boris the opportunity to break his promises, lose in 2016 and sink any chance of getting to no. 10 sounds like a good idea to me.
    ‘Don’t unseat Cameron’.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
