LISTEN: Stanley Johnson on Boris for Leader

You know how it is when your dad lets the cat out of the bag and gives away the whole plan for you to become Tory leader:

“100% not. As a matter of fact this is a purely hypothetical exercise because, as you know, the Conservatives firmly expect to win an overall majority at the next election. We firmly expect the leader to be in place then. It’s a question of just getting some appropriate system. It doesn’t seem to me to be reasonable in this day and age, you know, you have got plenty of candidates out there. Why should the candidates only be Members of Parliament? I’m really suggesting that there are other people who have been elected, there have for example been MEPs, you know these are a reasonable bunch of people – men and women. All I’m saying is there is a case for looking at the rules. You’ve got MEPs, you’ve got councillors, you’ve got other elected mayors, you’ve, by the way, got a group of Lords, elected Lords, they have an election. I am saying, surely the moment has come to have another look at the rules?”

Who could he have possibly had in mind…
