But be careful what you wish for. Boris is an avid proponent of Turkey's accession to the EU.
While Boris is miles better than Cameron, Turkey's accession will be the end of this country. And besides, Boris is unlikely to become Conservative party Leader before November 2012, when QMV kicks in, making the oppressive hand of the EU infinitely greater, and our chance of an exit, infinitely smaller.
Let's not vote for the least worst - let's vote for what we really want.
Vote UKIP at every opportunity, campaign for them, donate to them and relentlessly encourage everyone to do the same - and then we might just get the leadership this country wants and needs.
