One of the most interesting figures at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham this week is Boris Johnson.
His meeting on Monday evening, organised by the Conservative Home website, was called, simply: "Boris - The Rally."
During his speech, Mr Johnson praised Prime Minister David Cameron, saying that he and the government "are doing exactly what is needed for this country and to clear up the mess that Labour left".
"No-one should have any cause to doubt my admiration for David Cameron. In 2005, before Dave announced his candidacy, I rang him up at a stage when I think the number of 'Cameroons' could have been fitted into a telephone box."
The Today programme's James Naughtie gauges the mood at the Mayor of London's speech at the Conservatice Party conference fringe.
