A POLL by Politicalite has revealed a whopping 81% of readers think the Tories should put Boris on the Ballot.
We asked “Should Boris Johnson be on the final ballot?” in a poll of 1,405 people.
81% said YES 19% said NO.

One Tory donor is withholding a £500,000 donation to the party over the fiasco.
Lord Cruddas, also behind calls to get Boris on the Ballot told the Sunday Times: “I planned to donate a total of £500,000 this year but that is on hold and will not be paid unless the membership have a chance to vote on Boris being PM.”
