The Mayor is in situ until 2012 and doesn’t have a Westminster seat to fight.Â However, as one of the Conservative Party’s most recognisable figures, is it about time for Bozza to step in and start inspiring the British electorate to vote Tory?
Charles Moore, the Daily Telegraph journalist, certainly thinks so, especially amongst youth voters. Moore spoke to a group of students about the forthcoming General Election, and reported this: “My last question was to ask each student to name (unprompted) any current politician he/she admired. One mentioned Alistair Darling, one Vince Cable and a third Ed Balls (I must admit that I gasped). But the favourite by miles was Boris Johnson.”
Sarah Sands in the London Evening Standard agrees. BoJo “…..is the missing x-factor of the election. Cameron looks to William Hague for class balance and reliability. But he ignores the blond bombshell at his peril.”
