If you enjoyed the car-crash television of Eddie Mair’s interview yesterday with the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, another treat is in store.
Tonight (Monday) at 9pm, BBC2 will broadcast a documentary by Michael Cockerell, Boris Johnson: The Irresistible Rise. Boris’s sister and father are amongst those spilling the beans.
The idea that Boris would replace David Cameron as Tory leader and prime minister was always rather fanciful. After these two programmes, it is doubtful any bookie would even bother offering long odds.
Later... An interesting analysis by Sunny Hundal, which predicts that Sunday’s interview will open the floodgates.
