Boris Yearns For Westminster

Boris is stoking the fires this weekend, telling the FT he would not rule out a third term as mayor leading up to a handover pre-2020:

“During the whole Syria thing, for the first time in years I wished I was in parliament. I have to admit that I watched that and I thought… I wished. I wished… I want to do this job to the best of my ability for the next two-and-a-half years and then heaven knows what will happen.”

Most interestingly the FT name Adam Afriyie as running a shadow campaign for Boris, and would stand aside when the time comes:

“Adam Afriyie, the little-known but ambitious MP for Windsor and an admirer of Johnson, has assembled a leadership campaign organisation which could be quickly retooled to support a Boris leadership bid if the London mayor returns to parliament.”

Well it wouldn’t be the eve of Tory conference without some less than subtle positioning, would it…

Quote of the Day

Alan Sugar on Jeremy Corbyn:

“It’s clear you alluded to students refunds to get votes from young impressionable people. You are a cheat and should resign.”
