Awesome quote from Boris Johnson.
So what about Boris? The idea of him as prime minister was first raised in a Spectator editorial meeting almost 10 years ago, to the hearty laughter of everyone on the room â€“ with one exception. The man in question, the magazineâ€™s then editor, looked a little put out, almost hurt. But no one is laughing at him now. The bookmakers have Boris as favourite to succeed Cameron; the fact that he has no Commons seat is a mere detail. Lesser men may feel they ought to choose between being mayor and an MP, but as Boris once said, â€śMy position on cake is pro-having it, and pro-eating itâ€ť. Around the Commons, various names are touted (Crispin Blunt, Patrick Mercer) as men who may step down to allow the return of the king over the water.
