This is an interesting article via the Daily Telegraph which Dr Alf has brought us.
Boris would be more imaginative, better able to secure foreign inward investment and more popular with the electorate than George Osborne, even though Osborne has grown with his job and is politically cunning.
Given the need to renegotiate with Europe Boris would be in a better position than David Cameron because everyone knows that David Cameron is wedded to remaining in the EU and will not secure many concessions from Angela Merkel or Juncker.
All that said, it is all a question of the timing of David Cameron’s departure and the boundary changes, which will see the Conservative majority grow by 20 seats. In that event and good economic news people will go for Osborne but if we have bad economic performance, more storms and too much indifference to the plight of the “horny handed” population of Cumbria by the Southern elite, then the Conservatives need to unleash Boris.
