NotesNews: "While Cameron struggles, in the shires they talk of Boris: Following re-election and a triumphant Olympics, and with rumours rife that he is planning a parliamentary return, golden boy Boris Johnson is expected to outshine the PM at conference - and many believe he is the next leader. ... David Cameron is a good conference performer and will no doubt put on a strong show. But he will need to, because Boris is far from his only problem. After months of policy U-turns, there are signs of a government losing its grip. The Tories are still reeling from two more own goals: the chaotic handling of the franchise decision on the west coast main line, and the row over chief whip Andrew Mitchell allegedly calling Downing Street police "plebs". Mitchell has decided not to turn up to conference because he will be a distraction. " Daniel Boffey and Toby Helm, the Observer
