    Boris for PM?

    Boris Johnson is favourite to succeed Cameron as Tory leader.

    Boris for Leader-Telegraph

    Perhaps boosted by the London 2012 Olympics, Mr Johnson was named by nearly a third of those questioned, followed by William Hague, the Foreign Secretary and former leader, on 24 per cent, and Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, on 19 per cent
    Maybe he will give us some more of this, the guy is definitely game for a laugh

    Boris Johnson ended up getting a lot more attention that he bargained for today after getting stuck on a zipwire over a park in east London.

    Boris would be great. Inspirational.

    Until he had to deal with something where tact and serious diplomacy was needed.

    I wasn't proposing that Boris would make a good PM, in fact I wouldn't vote for the Tories while I have a hole in my ass.

    I was just pointing out, here in London Boris has a lot of support, and it looks like the tories are now wanting Boris as leader instead of Cameron.

    I should have made it more apparent that the post was about Boris the clown and the video of him performing on the wire today was another of his common clown escapades.

    There cannot be another politician that is in the same league as Boris for being a complete lunatic, if he isn't ogling crumpet he is insulting someone or making a tit of himself, that is why a lot of London voters preferred him over Ken and his two-faced lying political campaign.

    I am not a Tory. Infact I have no political affiliations at all as they're all a load of self-serving, faceless, promise-breaking cretins.

    HOWEVER!

    I can see a number of benefits of Boris being the PM.

    1.) The election campaign would bring numerous gaffes and hilarious occurances, particularly with the media on him 24/7 and with him being forced to mingle with the common man.

    2.) PM's Questions would genuinely be watchable - albeit from a comedy perspective.

    3.) Press conferences would again genuinely be watchable - albeit again from a comedy perspective.

    4.) The foreign trips would offer plenty of opportunity for gaffes.

    5.) The Monster Raving Loony Party would start to seem like a mainstream, logical party for voters.

    I would honestly vote for Boris, simply for the humour.

    Yes I would prefer a system where my vote could be used to put somebody who I believed and trusted into power - but I can't see that happening anytime soon.

    How did you vote the last time we had an opportunity to change the way we vote to support your point of view?

    I was in favour of AV.

    Sadly I was in Australia at the time and didn't vote.
