Mayor rules out Commons return and is 'sick' of being asked

Speaking on LBC 97.3fm this morning Boris Johnson said:

I haven't had a conversation of any such kind with George. George and I have a very, very good working relationship and indeed old, old friendship.

What we both want to do is get David Cameron re-elected. That is the project about which we are united.

Boris Johnson then ruled out any attempt to return to the Commons before 2015, and indicated he wanted to serve out his full term as mayor, which runs to 2016.

I am so sick of this subject, I think I'm going to expire sometimes. I am going to get on with my job as mayor of London.

The answer is I am sticking to my job that I was elected to do in 2012 and indeed in 2008. I'm very, very privileged to be here.
