Could Boris Johnson become Louth's next MP?
COULD this be Louth’s next MP?
Sir Peter Tapsell, the current holder of the Louth and Horncastle seat, has revealed today that he would hand over his seat to Boris Johnson, who is widely tipped to be a future Tory party leader.
Tapsell made the frank admission when asked by David Cameron if he would stay on in the commons until the next election, replying he was “keeping his seat warm for Boris”.
Mr Johnson has pledged to stay on as mayor until 2016 and could only stand in a Tory leadership contest if an MP offered to give up their seat after the next general election.
