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…
