Boris To Run For Mayor Again

1009_mayor.jpg Speaking to Nick Ferrari on LBC, Boris Johnson this morning confirmed that he will run again for Mayor in 2012, stating that he "has written to seek nomination to serve for another term". There has been much speculation over the summer about whether the blond would attempt to win a second term: in June the Standard (rather prematurely) called it, and he was expected to declare at the State of London debate that month, but never did. Just weeks ago Boris was rumoured to have threatened to quit if the Coalition's spending cuts went too deep; with Osborne and chums unlikely to be pumping money into London's coffers anytime soon, will Boris end up fighting a campaign against both his Labour opponent and his own party?
