Even before Boris Johnson has appeared on the doorstep of Downing Street, the Conservative Party in Hampstead were attempting to distancing themselves from him.
It was being pushed through letter-boxes along the leafy streets in a Camden Council by-election at 8.15 in the morning.
Johnson had yet to address the nation, announcing his resignation.

The Camden Conservatives were so keen to get the leaflet out, they forgot to put on its “p&p” – the printed and published by address required under U.K. election law.
The Labour Party in Camden immediately issued a “cease and desist” notice, demanding that its distribution be halted.
