LONDON, ENGLAND – MAY 05: (L-R) Prime Minister David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson are seen following Johnson’s re-election as the Mayor of London on May 5, 2012 at City Hall, London, England. David Cameron today said he was ‘delighted’ by Boris Johnson’s mayoral victory and praised his ‘very strong’ campaign and vowed the pair would work together for the good of London.

This is an excellent article from Iain Martin in the Telegraph. I just picked it up from a Twitter  micro blog from Benedict Brogan, the Deputy Editor at the Telegraph. It’s well worth a read. Check it out!

Clegg might be a pantomime act, but Cameron gave him the role – Telegraph

Let me give you a taister, with the following extract:

Privately, some other Tory MPs don’t rate their current leader as highly even as a mouse. “I’m afraid people sense he’s not got greatness stamped on him. And now he’s got Boris on his case,” says one. “There is no idea of where we are going,” says another. One young MP is even more bleak. “The guy is finished. Cameron doesn’t know what to do.”

For me, the question is:

If David Cameron is finished, just how long can he carry on?

It’s a bit like Tony Blair announcing that he’s not running for another term – suddenly, the power evaporates in a puff!

Surely, Boris Johnson, as a full-blown Tory PM , would attract some serious sovereign wealth inward investment? After all,  it would appear that Boris hasn’t seriously blotted his copy book like his fellow ex-Etonian, David Cameron. Also I suppose that Boris’ London Olympics halo won’t last for ever?

What do you think?
