so we have 11 runners and riders but they need to get 20 backers to clear the first fence that could be difficult

making the early lead is Rishi the yank having set up his campaign website 6 months ago and even completed a campaign video the day he resigned :-k

being strongly challenged by Lizzie the Truss fresh from her her success at miffing the EU

followed by Sajid Javid who knows all about losing leadership elections and Grant Schapps who likes railways and wants to spend billions of taxpayers money reopening them

and in the middle of the pack is Kemi Badenoch who seems far too straight talking and honest to get elected , Cruella Braverman a rookie with that sinister look of ambition, Penny Mordaunt the magicians assistant hoping she's still got the magic touch, Michael Gove the man with all the charisma of a skunk, Ben Wallace well he's a northerner so he's got no chance, Steve baker who wants a return to the bad old days of Thatcherism, Tom Tugendhat well someone always has to represent little c conservatism

with the veteran Hunt the C^*t desperately trying to limp along along in the rear accompanied by Rehman Chisti the complete outsider who is a small state big society kind of guy

I'm glad i'm not a party member that lot is like trying to find a peach in a barrel full of rotten apples but for the countries sake I do hope they don't pick Rishi Rishi Rishi

Anyone bar Hunt.

Think Truss and Mordant could be the last two.

And Schapps has fallen before even getting to the first hurdle :lol:

So no trains from London to Fleetwood hauled by Thomas the tank engine then :lol:

Quote of the day from Bojo the clown "I wouldn't want to damage anyone's chances with my support."

you said it Boris :lol:

No, I will listen to what the 2 candidates who get through have to say before deciding. However I still have my doubts that it will come to a vote in the same way that Teresa May was elected unopposed.

well Javid drops out now that was a surprise thought he might have lasted to second round

Rees Mogg and Patel didn't even enter although they said they might

you have to wonder if a few promises have been made as to cabinet positions in exchange for backing Rishi the yank :-k

His chats with Uber clearly didn't help.

Maybe...but we still elected them all even though we didn't trust any of them, politics is a neccessary evil with no work around. :sad:

Chisti is now out after gaining no backers so 8 on the ballot paper

so who is going to finish last ?

I am surprised Rehman found more backers than Javid or was Javid hedging his bets on promises of a plum cabinet position in exchange for not splitting the vote ?

Two fallers at the first hurdle Hunt gone, Zahawi gone.

So Sunak and one other to “choose” between.
