Mayor of London Boris Johnson has again denied that he would like to stand for Prime Minister. Asked on ITV's Daybreak, he said:
No of course not. I've got four years of Mayor of London. Perhaps this is the moment to knock this on the head, how can I issue a denial strong enough to stop this silly, silly, silly season story.
I think it inconceivable I'm going to be Prime Minister.
The Mayor was shown footage of him stuck last week on a 150ft high, 1,000ft long zip wire at the London Live event in Victoria Park, east London, when he was left hanging over a crowd of people for several minutes as the wire lost momentum. He joked:
There you have got it, how on earth could you elect that guy? How could anybody elect a prat who gets stuck in a zip wire?
