why does hunt bother he knows he's always going to come last :lol: Zahawi got more than him

I suspect now a couple more will withdraw and we'll be down to 4 for the next vote but Rishi the yank seems to be very popular amongst the parliamentarians

What part of the USA is Southampton?

Not that popular amongst parliamentarians, with 88/248 possible votes.

However I still have my doubts that it will come to a vote in the same way that Teresa May was elected unopposed.

Apparently, after the Theresa May/Andrea Leadson issue the rules were changed and now candidates have to sign up to going the whole way to the members vote if they are in the last 2.

so at the second hurdle Rishi the yank still in front with 101 PM4PM in second now on 83 Lizzie clears on 64 with Kemi now on 49 but TT only scraped through on 32 and one faller not unexpectedly it was the rank outsider Cruella

I am amazed TT still in it but still 5 runners so will any be made an offer they can't refuse to pull up before fence 3 ?

so the ERG group and Suella Bravaman have now come out and backed lizzie which means Kemi and Tom are as good as out so it's now looking more and more like Rishi the yank vs Lizzie

I take it that you are aware that Rishi Sunak does not hold US citizenship and is no longer a green card holder.

He had to give up his green card before they took it away.

And much as it pains me to correct your poor England, it’s “And they’re off!” Not “their”

my apologies i didn't notice I had done that
now corrected


So did anyone manage to watch the debate or did you find it a bit too cringeworthy

Lizzie didn't half spew a load of verbal diarrhoea in answer to many of the questions but I was impressed with TT as the only one who give a straight answer to the question is Boris Johnson honest

as for some of the candidates saying they didn't want to attack other candidates REALLY ! of course they did

Otherwise I only watched about half an hour and based on that I am seriously worried for the future of the country

It is utterly cringeworthy, and even worse when you have a live audience, IMO.

It seems to be staying in the same order Badenoch can't get momentum Truss has the ERG backing otherwise I think she might be on the wane and Mr popular is way out in front
