OK, next round, gloves are off and it starts getting serious.

Gather in a circle and chant "Fight, fight, fight".

Far more interesting than May's turgid time.
 
114 votes for BoJo. Go on my son!!!

With Boris at the helm, I might just return to voting conservative.
 
Stewart, Hancock & Javid to get booted in the next round.

Unless there is an enormous amount of tactical voting by remainer MP's
 
Bojo has put down a marker and cut off at the knees any chance of stopping him getting to the final two.

I would be astonished if the tory establishment put up hunt, who has as much personality as TM and liked even less in the country. Tactically speaking, its between Javid and Rory and its an interesting exercise on who can face boris and get the moderates on side.

Swap Gove for Javid - Gove blew it thinking he would be seen as hard and a thruster by admitting the association with the marching powder.

Rory just scraped in - voting for him would be a huge tactical move which will not harm BoJo at all.
 
Oh this is to much excitement nearly as fun so I hear as BGT which in a way it is BGT New Prime Minister Show.

Snorting the Devil's talcum powder as a 20 year old student is one thing. Doing it as 30 year old "proper" grownup entirely different.

I can see Stewart surviving another round but the other two are toast.
I thought he failed the first test?

How did he manage that, I thought three below 12 votes were binned?

The cut off was 17 votes.

I think Javid may well have ruined any slight chance he had by tactically playing the race card. Hunt on the other hand may well be a boring non-entity but despite the posts he's held very little seems to stick, in effect the Teflon candidate.

I seriously doubt Gove has any real support within the PP and even less in the membership so for me it would be Bojo as lead candidate and Hunt the also ran.

That's be Rory Stewart who thinks no deal should be off the table?

That'll work well when he goes to Barnier and demands a renegotiation of the WA. Barnier will politely show him the door, explaining the WA can't be renegotiated.

Where does that leave Stewart, except looking like a chimp?

And where does that leave the Tory party, except looking like extinct?
