How To Use Boris In The Marginals…


Boris, although often derided, is still the Mayor of London. This makes him the most powerful Conservative holding office at the present time, and could be used in the marginals to bolster the Tory campaign.

However Boris is a Marmite politician, you either love him or you think he is a publicly educated fool who has said a lot of offensive things about lots of different demographics (I personally think the man is living legend).

Luckily for the Tories, there are plenty of seats in the South that Boris could help out in. In fact, in Romsey and North Southampton his comments against Portsmouth (in an GQ article in 2007 he claimed that the town was “one of the most depressed towns in Southern England, a place that is arguably too full of drugs, obesity, underachievement and Labour MPs”) could secure a massive majority in the Liberal Democrat held seat.

So I would use Boris in the Southern marginals instead of the North West marginals given his past form on Liverpool. Hove, Brighton Pavilion and Cheltenham are seats where Boris should be utilized for Tory gains. The Conservatives must not use Boris too much though, otherwise Gordon Brown could accuse him of not “getting on with the job” of being the Mayor of London.
