General Election 2015: Boris Johnson arrives to boos and cheers in the north

Boris Johnson – the Tory politician who David Cameron calls his “star player” – journeyed north to Farsley, near Leeds in a bid to boost the party’s popularity in the region.

The London Mayor, who is standing as an MP in west Ruislip in May’s election, arrived in West Yorkshire as part of a Conservative campaigning tour ahead off the election in just three months’ time.

However it is fair to say that he classically-educated Tory Mayor of London received a somewhat mixed reaction from the residents of Farsley.
