Boris Johnson has today announced his intention to find a constituency to run for election as a Member of Parliament in 2015. No doubt he will be elected in a suitably safe seat.
However it seems he does not plan to relinquish his role as Mayor of London for the year or so between the General and Mayoral elections.
This is wrong !
Just as as wrong as when Ken Livingstone by not resigning as an MP when he was first elected as Mayor in May 2000, "double dipping" at the tax payer's expense until Jthe une 2001 General Election.
This is something which Boris rightly criticised him for during his Mayoral election campaigns.
Being a proper MP is a full time job, as is being Mayor of London.
