Boris Johnson for Prime Minister

After hours of pontification I finally decided who I think the next Conservative Party leader should be, and then the Guardian goes and gets there first.

There is nothing to dislike about Boris Johnson: he's humourous, intelligent and self-deprecating; with the possible exception of intelligence, the exact opposite of Iain Duncan Smith. There aren't many politicians who can say they have their own fan club. Labour MP Tom Watson has his own ideas on who he thinks should become leader, but somehow I sense it's in the same vain as those Labour supporters who want Iain Duncan Smith to stay. All we need now is for the Conservative Party members to realise that the majority of voters aren't Conservative Party members and to be brave in their choice of leader.

Remember, you read it here second.

I must confess to being a Labour voter, but I hate party politics and would vote for any individual who I believed would be willing to make 'right' decisions regardless of how it makes them look.
Boris is such a man. As leader of the Tories, he would guarantee my vote in the next general election.
More charm than Blair, and a whole lot more transparently honest.
