Labour's Shadow Minister for London, Sadiq Khan, claims Boris Johnson's announcement that he will try to run for Parliament shows David Cameron is "weak".
"Boris Johnson's announcement reveals how weak David Cameron is and how out of touch the Tories remain," he said.
"Rather than focusing on helping the millions of Britons suffering from the cost-of-living crisis, the Tories are increasingly turning inwards, focused on leadership battles to come, with David Cameron powerless to do anything about it."
