I missed this from Pippa Crerar in the Evening Standard a few days ago:
It just shows again that there is a real sense of needle between David Cameron and Mayor Boris Johnson.
Why did the Mayor’s office bother to respond at all?
There are three possible answers:
- the Mayor cannot turn down any opportunity to contradict his Party Leader; or
- the Mayor is not, as I have been predicting, intending to stand again in 2012; or
- both of the above.
