Boris mayor campaign grows by stealth

By July 5, 2007News

Some cracking sleuthing by the blogging community today on Boris’s potential campaign. Order Order (Guy Fawkes blog) has some interesting titbits on the multiple domains being bought up with the words “boris” and “mayor” – with a lot of them being bought even before the rumour broke. Most of them bought by one man – do you know David Herskovic? It also mentions the Spectator article in which the magazine backs their former editor to the hilt. It even has a blog-based vote on the topic – Boris is clearly a popular man!Boris for Mayor

If anyone’s on Facebook (and let’s face it, who isn’t?!), there’s now an “I’m backing Boris” group, as well as a whole load more Boris-based groups to sign up to.

Elsewhere, the Telegraph invites comments to the question “Would you back Boris for Mayor of London?” – and the answer, essentially, is “damn right, with bells on.” Tory Radio is fully behind the idea of Mayor Boris.

So, what’s your view? A potentially great Mayor?
