MAYOR of London Boris Johnson has become a 25/1 bet on becoming the next MP for Hove.

Ladbrokes has released the odds despite Brighton and Hove City Councillor Graham Cox getting the seal of approval from the local Conservative association to stand.

The Boris odds come after he confirmed his intentions to become an MP.

In a speech about the EU at the Bloomberg headquarters in London he said he “had danced around” the issue “for an awfully long time”.

The statement has ended months of speculation by saying he will "in all probability" seek to become an MP again at next year's general election.

The mayor has been linked with seats including Uxbridge and South Ruislip in London but said he did not have a particular target in mind at the moment.

Mr Johnson is also at 25/1 to become an MP in Orpington and Henley.

Boris is a hot favourite to be the next leader of the Conservative Party according to Ladbrokes.

His odds of becoming the next Tory leader were slashed from 5/1 to 9/4 while his odds of becoming the next Prime Minister also halved to 5/1.

Coun Cox said the idea of Mr Johnson becoming the MP for Hove is a “non starter”.

“I think it would be fantastic to see Boris in Parliament but I suspect it won’t be here,” he said.

Coun Cox has announced he will step down as a Brighton and Hove City Councillor for the Westbourne ward as he focuses on the Parliamentary elections next May.

Currently Hove MP Mike Weatherley is stepping down after battling cancer.

I really hope it happens - just because of how it would seriously blow up in Johnson's face. Say what you will about the Hove Tories, they've proved that they don't take kindly to being pushed around by metropolitan outsiders, as the Blond Buffoon would no doubt discover if he makes any attempt to unpick the democratic choice of candidate they've just made.

So bring it on. There can never be enough chaos in the Conservative Party for my liking......

This buffoon isnt welcome in Sussex. He should clear off back to Oxfordshire.

Also he is the Mayor of London. MP and Mayor of London should both be full time jobs.

So Boris will become a part time MP and a part time Mayor? Will he only be accepting 50% of each salary?

He deserves to be publicly flogged. Ask any London Fire Fighter about him and you'll get the same response. I guess his 'cuddly old bumbling Boris' approach with his oh so eccentric ways has got you fooled but most people can see through this now for what he is - a bully and all round nasty bloke.

Strange don't you think - Boris has been elected by Londoners twice. London is a far bigger and diverse city than ours so I wonder why people think he's done such bad things for London when more Londoners voted for him than people that actually live in our city ? Looks like sad Tory bashing to me.

As for Cllr Cox - while not a brilliant choice I'd rather have him as my MP than that ridiculous bumbling idiot Hawtree.

Actually, Boris thinks that leaving the EU would be the best thing for the UK .

He was reported as saying as much in the Daily Mail today.

He's right, of course.

As for standing in Hove, is the seat 'safe' enough?

Accredited to the Naked Truth: David Camerman: Is he the worst Prime Minister in British history?

Let's be very clear about Boris Johnson, he may play the bumbling loveable clown who stumbles around mumbling nonsense like an overweight version of Charlie Chaplins little tramp character, but this was an act he invented years ago to avoid answering and side tracking awkward questions and he has now perfectly perfected it for the television camera, but i can assure you that for the ordinary man and woman in the street there is absolutely nothing loveable about the true character of the sinister and spiteful Johnson.

Johnson is a former member of the spoilt little rich boys gang call the Bullingdon club and got his teenage jollies mocking the homeless by burning money in front of them and drunkenly smashing up restaurants and wine bars in fact once going as far as setting fire to one restaurants toilet for which his family paid up for the extensive damage and inconvenience to avoid an arson prosecution.

Johnson is not a middle of the road politician, he is as about as extreme right as you can get. He firmly believes in a class divide and has an extreme hatred for anything that may narrow the gap between those that have, and those that have not.He can barely hide his contempt for the poor and those who have been cursed by misfortune, and if you have a look at his time as London Mayor a little more closely you can not help but notice that homelessness in the capital has nearly doubled under his term as he shut down shelters and cut funding and closed charity funded hostels, most notably doing most damage while everyone was concentrating on the London Olympics as he literally tried to cleanse parts of London of the poor and low paid.

Johnson time as mayor has seen London become the playground of the rich with many ordinary working people unable to afford to live in areas where generations of their family have lived and died, London rents are some of the highest in Europe and owning a property will be nothing more than a pipe dream for londoners and their sons and daughters and perhaps even their grandchildren.

Johnson has driven down wages and blocked pay rises and has tried to stamp out workers rights and then demonised workers unions who have taken on the fight of fairness for their members by using that old Tory chestnut of blaming striking workers for the inconvenience caused to their fellow citizens. The tube strikes summed up Johnson when he point blank refused to even sit down and talk to workers leaving them little option but to strike, and then he was straight on Sky news with condemnation and bile for the strike action and actively egged on the nation to be part of that condemnation in a shameless show of elitist arrogance .

Londons wealth has increased tenfold and Boris is a firm supporter of the banks and hedge funders and has encouraged the billions that have flowed in to the square mile but under Boris none of this wealth has dripped down to the ordinary men and women of London who have seen their wages on average hit by an 9% dip due to the sky high cost of living in London, and for some the bedroom tax that Boris supported has added to that misery.

So when you see lovable cuddly Boris on your Tvs now telling you he wants to become an MP once again after his first disastrous stint in parliament, but please also realise he now has one eye on the big prize and firmly believes he can one day make it all the way to number 10. So just take a minute to see what is just bubbling under that jolly tubby character he plays for the camera's, if you were just to scratch the surface a tiny bit you would see an uncaring man with a lump of coal for a soul and a empty husk for his true character.. You have been warned.

Mr Taylor, it's never a good idea when putting oneself forward for election to anything to tell the electorate how stupid you are.

Boris hasn't 'overseen' the arrival of London as a playground for the world's rich. It has occurred over the centuries.

Teenage indiscretions shouldn't really be carried into adulthood, as you've pathetically tried to do.

Bob Crow refused to deal with City Hall. That is a fact.

Striking workers inconvenience their fellow workers. That is a fact.

Boris is a firm believer that wealth creates wealth....he is right. The law has to be observed, but Boris believes in that, too.

There is no 'tax' on bedrooms. Anyone who claims that there is is stupid.

You smell like a commie and you're stupid......you will never be elected to anything that concerns decent people.

You're welcome.

Johnson time as mayor has seen London become the playground of the rich with many ordinary working people unable to afford to live in areas where generations of their family have lived and died, London rents are some of the highest in Europe and owning a property will be nothing more than a pipe dream for londoners and their sons and daughters and perhaps even their grandchildren.

Johnson has driven down wages and blocked pay rises and has tried to stamp out workers rights and then demonised workers unions who have taken on the fight of fairness for their members by using that old Tory chestnut of blaming striking workers for the inconvenience caused to their fellow citizens. The tube strikes summed up Johnson when he point blank refused to even sit down and talk to workers leaving them little option but to strike, and then he was straight on Sky news with condemnation and bile for the strike action and actively egged on the nation to be part of that condemnation in a shameless show of elitist arrogance .

Londons wealth has increased tenfold and Boris is a firm supporter of the banks and hedge funders and has encouraged the billions that have flowed in to the square mile but under Boris none of this wealth has dripped down to the ordinary men and women of London who have seen their wages on average hit by an 9% dip due to the sky high cost of living in London, and for some the bedroom tax that Boris supported has added to that misery.

So when you see lovable cuddly Boris on your Tvs now telling you he wants to become an MP once again after his first disastrous stint in parliament, but please also realise he now has one eye on the big prize and firmly believes he can one day make it all the way to number 10. So just take a minute to see what is just bubbling under that jolly tubby character he plays for the camera's, if you were just to scratch the surface a tiny bit you would see an uncaring man with a lump of coal for a soul and a empty husk for his true character.. You have been warned.
Mr Taylor, it's never a good idea when putting oneself forward for election to anything to tell the electorate how stupid you are.

Boris hasn't 'overseen' the arrival of London as a playground for the world's rich. It has occurred over the centuries.

Teenage indiscretions shouldn't really be carried into adulthood, as you've pathetically tried to do.

Bob Crow refused to deal with City Hall. That is a fact.

Striking workers inconvenience their fellow workers. That is a fact.

Boris is a firm believer that wealth creates wealth....he is right. The law has to be observed, but Boris believes in that, too.

There is no 'tax' on bedrooms. Anyone who claims that there is is stupid.

You smell like a commie and you're stupid......you will never be elected to anything that concerns decent people.

You're welcome.
You smell like a fascist moron and the whiff gets stronger with every comment you make.......

Boris won't stand in a Brighton constituency, and even Hove is unlikely.

However, it's a fair bet that he will be standing somewhere at the next election.

What nonsensical tabloid-tactics sensationalist drivel. Where is there any evidence that BJ is realistically going to stand for Hove MP? 25/1 odds...that was about the same as you could have got for England winning the world cup and we all know what the chances of that were.
Not that I'm surprised, the Argos journalists probably spend more time hanging around Southampton bookies in between pints at their local wetherspoons than anything else.
