Mordaunt actually got 1 vote less than round 2.

but I can see Badenoch getting eliminated in R4 as she is too far behind Lizzie and then Pm4PM edging Lizzie out in R5 leaving the big vote between the 2 candidates that I personally would least trust

We, (the Conservative party membership) are being manipulated in that direction, I would agree.

The “choice” we will be offered will be no choice at all.

I wouldn't say we were being manipulated. I think the serious candidates have not stood on this occasion because they know they will get the blame at the next election.

that's a shame because I think she is only one of the four left at this stage who would make any big changes the other 3 are going to carry on with the same or similar policies which have not worked that well up until now


PS did you notice that Bojo won the latest confidence vote by something of a landslide

Of course he did. The party have chucked the baby out with the bath water.

I’ll be voting none of the above…

Truss will beat Mordant to go to the members.

Truss will beat Sunak and become PM.

it all depends who the Badenoch supporters get behind although lizzie has the backing of the ERG

and of course Pm4PM has the backing of the pork pie plotters caught Pete's mate being interviewed on channel 4 last night whilst channel hopping during the ad breaks

ultimately it comes down to grass roots voters who might well choose "fiscal prudence" over burdening future generations with massive debts

When the so called porkpie plot was going on, I was at dinner with our MP and at that time she was supporting Sahawi for the job.

Interesting column in today’s daily telegraph.

Peter (Lord) Cruddas is campaigning for a vote amongst party members on whether to not to accept Boris Johnson’s resignation. Well, it gets my vote.

Boris was removed by around 50 (backstabbing) MP’s who, through a herd mentality series of resignations, were able to unseat our prime minister at a time of crisis, despite his record of winning millions of votes and without the formal approval of party members.
What a shower.
