Simon Hoggart's week: why Boris Johnson is David Cameron's nightmare

William Hague famously made a crack about Tony Blair's choice of London mayors – Frank Dob-son would be his day mayor, and Ken Livingstone his night mayor. But Ken turned out to be no problem. Compare and contrast with Boris Johnson. David Cameron must be praying every night, immolating herds of sacrificial cattle, to make sure Boris wins a second term this spring. If he does, he will be tucked out of the way fretting about bus fares and practising his speech for the Olympics (actually, that's silly: Boris never practises a speech.)

But if he loses he will be roaring back into national politics. As my friend who has a PhD in Borisovian studies said this week: "There are chairmen and women of Conservative associations across the country squirming with delight at the prospect of Boris being their candidate." The first safe Tory seat in a byelection, and whoomph! he'll be on the green benches again. Will Cameron give him a place in the cabinet? He can hardly fail to; he would be a lowering threat on the backbenches. But once in government, won't he be a tremendous uncontrollable menace to half Cameron's policies and all of his job? As Lyndon Johnson said, there are some politicians who are outside the tent pissing in and some who are inside pissing out.

Boris would be inside pissing in. The thought must make Cameron wake up screaming, clutching Samantha, his heart thumping till the terrible vision fades.

✒I was in Derby last weekend, giving a talk at one of their fine libraries, when the snow horror struck. Actually it already had struck, and the streets were white, but it snowed more heavily for the three hours I was in the library. Afterwards kind people gave me a lift into the centre, and we slithered from side to side at around 5mph. But the centre was full. Groups of young persons, most of them dressed for a pleasant spring evening, roamed around the streets and besieged the minicab offices. We went for a curry in one of those upmarket Indian restaurants where the waiters wear silk tunics and headdresses, like the servants of a maharajah. It was packed.

Next morning the TV groaned with terrible alarums and forebodings. There would be travel chaos. You should stay at home unless your life was in danger. Not a car, a bus or a train would move through the swirling white hell. I got to Derby station and saw an indicator board showing every train on time. Mine pulled into St Pancras one minute late. We do love to terrify ourselves.
