David Cameron's sales pitch for a Remain vote in the EU referendum, saw him repeatedly using the phrase he "didn't love Europe." Now hypocritical Boris Johnson says he "does love Brussels," along with the fine wines and expensive holidays, but has announced he will campaign for Britain to leave the EU.
It is clear that Boris Johnson has caused a storm in ignoring the PM and advocating Brexit; however, regardless of motivation, I am in support of the concept of taking a leap of faith and giving Britain the chance to negotiate its own independence and economic growth, instead of bowing down to pass on decisions to another party.
I understand that the 'in' campaign feels the need to scaremonger on these issues; after all, it is their primary tactic on the economy. Is there any substance to their claims? I don't see it.
Boris Johnson, however, has decided to turn his back on Team Dave. If Cameron loses, a challenge to his leadership would be inevitable. For the Mayor of London, it seems that he has spotted a convenient gamble with Europe that could work to his political advantage.
The story revealed that Mr Khan's brother-in-law for more than 20 years took part in and spoke at events organised by vile group Al-Muhajiroun. Cue accusations of racism, Islamophobia and every other type of phobia quicker than the time it takes to read the full article. And boy did they fly in - on Twitter, mostly, but also from friends of people close to me. These accusations, from people who claim to believe in freedom of expression, are absurd. The "real" story was, in fact, an exercise in what the media should be doing - scrutinising politicians' own records.
Despite their claims to be leading the global fight against tax avoidance, British Conservatives have been vociferous in their condemnation of EU atte...
Today the Capital's streets are in crisis - the number of under-25s sleeping rough in one of the richest cities in the world has more than doubled since the last mayoral election. Whoever succeeds Boris Johnson in May won't just have the platform to express concern and talk about change, they'll have the power, the public support, and a multi-million pound budget to work with London's boroughs to make homelessness and rough sleeping a thing of the past. But how should they do it and where should they start?
Firstly prepare your beverage of choice (I personally like an organic cider from a local producer) Then, on a second platter, prepare a roulette of shot's (I personally use a organic celeriac vodka).
I'm going to cut to the chase; the next few years are going to see London's infrastructure stretched to breaking point, and the next Mayor of London has a colossal job on their hands to prevent the capital's vital services and infrastructure from bursting at the seams.
This should be a wake-up call to policymakers. Policies are put in place to improve wellbeing, not as a matter of dogma. When they cease to deliver we should change them. And I believe that we should now bring this free for all to an end and stop - not EU citizens - but all non-EU citizens from buying real estate in Britain.
If David Cameron succeeds in his efforts to negotiate a better deal from the EU, our new poll shows that he adds 10 points to the power of the remain campaign's argument with swing voters. But that is far from the biggest prize when it comes to winning the referendum...

I can't hide my disappointment at being denied the right to run for Mayor of London after two years of work with a volunteer team of 40 - that was a very sad goodbye dinner as we sat for that last supper and mused over the ten or so gentlemen who sealed my fate. But onwards and upwards.
London became Europe's most congested city in 2014 with drivers spending 96 hours in traffic, according to a recent report by traffic monitoring agency Inrix. This means London has leapfrogged previous biggest loser Brussels to claim this year's gridlock gold medal.
The back-and-forth drama between politicians is unlikely to decrease anytime soon and in the current political climate, perhaps we need all the humour we can get. And who knows-picturing Cameron, Clegg and Miliband setting up their own cafeteria rules and sashaying down a hallway to Missy Elliott might be just what we all need.
