Would Johnson then be in a position to challenge Cameron?
Above is the front page of tomorrow’s Mail on Sunday which suggests that something might be about to happen so Boris could make a return to the commons as an MP.
The full detail of the report is not available yet from from the image of the front page it appears that Zac Goldsmith is/has/will offer to stand down in his Richmond Park seat so that the Mayor of London could make a return and possibly challenge Cameron.
Quite what the substance of the story is we don’t know but if this did happen it would be dynamite.
No doubt more will come out in the next few hours.
Boris is the betting favourite to be next Tory leader – only problem at the moment is that he’s not an MP.
