We all know that Boris chose the path of Mayordom over Westminster politics, but after Thursday’s election we do have a Johnson as an MP. This is Bozza’s younger brother, Jo, who was elected as the Conservative MP for Orpington with a stonking 29,200 votes.
Johnson was chosen as the MP after the incumbent Tory, John Horam, announced he was stepping down in 2010. He beat the leader of local Bromley Council, Lib Dem David McBride with a 12.2% swing from the Liberal Democrats to the Conservatives.
The 39 year old journalist says, “My top priority will be to tackle the anti-social behaviour that is making so many peopleâ€™s lives a misery. We should not have to put up with yobbish and inconsiderate behaviour and I applaud those who stand up against it.”
The younger Johnson has yet to provide us with a Boris-esque soundbite or be involved in a Johnson PR disaster. ‘Jowatch’ just doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it?
