  Tory MP's refuse to back liability Boris
In a startling revelation Tory MP's in London are split down the middle as only half were revealed as backers of Boris Johnson's mayoral campaign today. The overwhelming favourite to be selected as the Tories mayoral candidate is seen by many in the conservative parliamentary party as an embarrassing liability. This will come as a disappointment to his close friend and fellow Bullingdon club member David Cameron who had wanted a serious candidate like Greg Dyke but was prepared to settle for the old Etonian as it would create a greater perceived distance between his extremely rightwing friend and his modernising project.

Interesting that the only two Conservative London Assembly Members on the list - Bob Neill and Andrew Pelling - who are also Tory MPs ill not back Boris. Why I wonder?
why indeed. and didn't you forget to list all the MPs and AMs of other parties who ARE supporting Boris Johnson? Whose media machine is the epitome of inept. Even Parburypolitica has had more posts than BoJo's press office.
