The opposition Conservative Party on Thursday staked its hopes for winning the London mayor's office on the candidate with the messiest hair - and probably the sharpest wit. Boris Johnson, 43, a journalist and TV personality, defeated three little-known opponents to carry the party standard against the two-term incumbent, Ken Livingstone. Johnson polled 15,661 votes to 1,869 for runner-up Victoria Borwick, the party announced.
