When Scott Balcony heard the news that Uxbridge and South Ruislip MP Sir John Randall was to step down at the next general election, he knew exactly what to do.

Now that Mr Randall will not campaign to win the seat for the Conservatives, it leaves it open for Mayor of London Boris Johnson to take it on, who has been widely speculated to want to make a return to the Commons in 2015.

Mr Johnson has made no comment on the speculation, but Mr Balcony went about creating two t-shirts asking the people of Uxbridge to vote on whether they would say Yes to having Mr Johnson as their next MP, or No to BoJo.

Within a couple of hours orders for each version of the t-shirt started coming in and a BBC News crew even stepped into the Balcony Shirts shop in Windsor Street, Uxbridge to find out what was going on.

"It was great, really good fun and I was indeed surprised by the reaction," Scott said. "We do things
like this all the time and very rarely get a big reaction so the BBC news crew turning up at the shop was a surprise!

"It's still about two Nos to every one Yes so far and we've sold around 40 t-shirts," he said.
