NotesNews: "It's what happens to politicians . That was the barbed verdict, delivered with a hint of pleasure, of one member of David Cameron's inner circle after Boris Johnson was roughed up on TV by Eddie Mair. There has long been irritation inside No.10 that the normal rules of politics don't seem to apply to Boris. So here was the London Mayor, who relishes the chance to tweak Cameron's tail, coming a cropper - and, better still, coming hot on the heels of Johnson admitting for the first time that, one day, he'd like to have a crack at being Prime Minister. Oh, the schadenfreude! But by the end of the week, it was clearer than ever that the usual laws of political gravity don t apply to Boris - the BBC interview had done him no discernible harm. Indeed, one survey showed that having him as party leader would improve the Tories position in the polls by six points, wiping out Labour's lead. The closer the country gets to the Election, the more this kind of poll will impress Tory MPs. ... " James Forsyth, Mail on Sunday
