Of course, Team Boris will be more than aware of all this. But it's worth repeating nonetheless, and I'm sure CCHQ will be doing so with great frequency. After all, the 10p tax row has - to some extent - spun the Left-Right divide on its head. The Tories now have the perfect opportunity to be seen as the party of the low-income earner. And - speaking strategically - Boris is the vanguard of this process. If he can fight the good fight for over-burdened Londoners, then I'm sure the clientèle of Jose's cafe will be far happier to vote Tory in 2010.
