From CNN:

Leading Brexiter Boris Johnson says he won't run for prime minister

London (CNN) The race to become Britain's next prime minister took a surprise twist Thursday as leading Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson, considered a frontrunner to replace the outgoing David Cameron, announced that he would not be running.

Having outlined the demands of the role to a room full of journalists in London, Johnson announced: "I have concluded that that person cannot be me."

The Conservative MP and former London mayor was a prominent voice in the campaign to lead Britain out of the European Union -- an endeavor many saw as partly an effort to position himself as the future leader of the ruling Conservative Party, and of the country.

Turns out, pyromaniacs suck at the boring business of governance on both sides of the Atlantic.
