It's Boris!

by Stephen Tall on September 27, 2007

Yes, ‘the blondest suicide note in history’ has romped home to victory in the Tories’ London mayoral primary. The results were:

  • Boris Johnson: 15,661 votes
  • Victoria Borwick: 1,869
  • Andrew Boff: 1,674
  • Warwick Lightfoot: 609
  • The vote was open to all seven million of London’s voters, so it’s good to see a super turn-out of 0.2%.

    As LDV reported last week, though, the Tories may just have cut their own throats. And anyone who listened to Boris being interviewed on BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme this morning might be forgiven for wondering how on earth the Tories think they’ll sustain a credible campaign with Boris at the helm.
