False Start

I have never seen anything so shameless.

Boris Johnson to the first safe Conservative seat to have its MP die, and thence to an immediate Leadership challenge. Seb Coe to Mayor of London, his campaign having started tonight.

The problem is that their party probably could not win any parliamentary by-election at the moment, and that it certainly could not hold onto the London job.

But what would then become of Boris, having lost one and resigned the other?
