You've got to hand it to Cameron, he gave a smooth response to a question about Boris becoming PM on BBC Radio London earlier:  

“Why shouldn't he be ambitious? I think it's great and it does not worry me at all. I'm a Conservative, I think competition in all things is good including for the very highest jobs.

While I suspect the Boris leadership talk won't go away over the next few years, this kind of open-minded response suggests that the Tories are determined to suck any poison out of the story.
