Speaking exclusively to ConservativeHome Boris Johnson has acted swiftly to dispel speculation that he is antagonistic towards David Cameron and is planning to become Prime Minister. Being London Mayor is "almost certainly my last big job in British politics" he said.
He went on to describe The Times' report that he "despised" David Cameron as "obvious tripe" and "fantasy". Anyone who knows us would know it was tripe, he continued.
A desperate Labour Party and bored media was inventing "unimaginative" copies of the Blair-Brown tensions and applying them to the Conservatives. It was "pathetically schematic". I am "utterly dedicated to London" he said.
There'll be more of ConHome's interview with Boris Johnson on his first anniversary.
