With the announcement that Sir Peter Tapsell is to step down as Louth and Horncastle MP at the next General Election, speculation is already mounting about a likely successor for what is regarded as one of the safest Tory seats in the country.

Previously, political ‘heavyweights’ of the stature of Boris Johnson have been linked with the position, particularly after Sir Peter was reportedly overheard joking that he was “keeping his seat warm for Boris”.

Suggestions that Boris Johnson wants to return to the House of Commons and challenge for the role of Conservative Party leader are well documented. But would you want to see Boris Johnson stand in the Louth and Horncastle constituency in a bid to return to Parliament?
