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…

      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.

    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.

    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 .

Before Miliband spoke, a school choir sang ‘Fix You’ by Coldplay. The first verse of which goes like this:

“When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse”

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
