    Boris Johnson is clearly the most popular Tory in the country right now, and looks to remain that way.

    If he were to be leader of the Conservative Party come the next general election (currently scheduled for May 2015) would you vote Tory?

    For me, Boris Johnson is a clear winner.

    Charismatic and passionate, his energy and dynamism would shake up the party.

    Ed Miliband would have no chance against the force of nature that is BoJo.

    I don't know whether to feel proud or ashamed of myself for saying that, despite holding left wing views, I'd vote for Boris just to see him turn up to G8 summits and insult everyone there.

    Also, the hair. It's like candyfloss :heart:

    Well... are you actually able to tell me reasons why you don't like him? Policies of his? Aspects of him personally?

    I don't understand that people dislike people but are unable to give reasons why - it seems the same sort of attitude that people that are racist or homophobic have - disliking someone simply for the sake of it seems rather odd.

    What i don't like about him is that he claims to have an understanding of how everyone lives their life when he (like most politicians) is in fact on a planet of his own where his ideas are far removed from those which would make a difference.

    How so? I assume you aren't referring to his background, because you say Boris is 'a lot better' although the two attended the same school and university.

    Why is David Cameron in particular any more removed from the lives of the working class than any other politician in the Westminster bubble?

    Is it an inherently bad thing?

    He's a more plausible choice for PM after Brian Blessed. Yes, I think all future elections should be based on whether the leader of the party has been on Have I Got News For You.

    I prefer Boris to 'Call-Me-Dave' because he's not so pompous and in your face about his upbringing

    Eh? When has Cameron been 'in your face' about it?

    I've never seen Cameron show off about his background, that would be suicide, I've never even seen him mention it actually, I think, after reading other posts, you are attacking Cameron at an pre-decided ideological level, and are somewhat influence by the many soundbites of labour populists. Get to the facts or sources, don't make it up!

    I only recall Cameron speaking about his background when being attacked by Labour over it.

    I've never heard Cameron make an ad hominem argument against an opponent, however.

    Dave won't step down for Boris. Anyway I'm a labour supporter, so even though I find Boris amusing, I will NEVER vote him in.

    No. Boris is a buffoon and I'd never vote Tory either.
