Many tweeters, including Marina Hyde, the Guardian writer, have commented that Boris Johnson seems very quiet this election. Where is Boris, is the cry? Is he distancing himself from the Tory campaign?The truth could not be more different. At the specific request of No. 10, Boris has been using his irrresistible charisma to visit every Tory marginal in the UK, including the north. He is fighting GE15 street by street.
Nobody enjoys meeting the people more than Boris and he has been mobbed wherever he goes. At the request of No. 10, he has concentrated on this role rather than appear on television. Now, as agreed with George and Dave, he will make more tv appearances.
This article by the Telegraph shows the phenomenal ground high energy Boris has been covering. Once he was in 169 selfies and covered 3 marginals in a day. It would be unfair not to acknowledge the massive effort our Mayor has made for his party. Since he has started doing tv appearances, the campaign has ignited. He may have kept out of the limelight before, but he has fought harder than anyone.
