And Gove leapfrogs Hunt to 2nd… makes for interesting vote now on who will join Boris in the final 2.

On paper Gove is favourite to join Boris but rumours some Boris supporters will lend votes to Hunt.June 20, 2019 at 6:18 pm #80362
Boris v hunt now

All down to the unknown now though, final vote is a completely different playing field which voting up to now has no relevance.
I can’t remember a time when a leadership battle has been so ‘in your face’ ok there’s a PM slot here, but didn’t remember this hype when Brown took over from Blair… different party, different rules i know, but still can’t remember such public hype.. or perhaps i just wasn’t interested at the time.

It may be that Trev. I think there are very many people now awoken to politics.
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Boris will be PM of course. Two options from there, we leave the EU on 31st October under WTO,rules saving the Tory party, or we get a general election in the autumn and both major parties are destroyed.</p>June 20, 2019 at 8:03 pm #80371
It is appearing we shall have weeks of hustings which will allow the Conservative members a chance to test the candidates prior to the final vote. Many voters are now hoping Brexit is delivered and democracy is not betrayed. Time shall tell.

I wonder if Boris may drop out or be persuaded to and we have a Hunt coronation?June 24, 2019 at 8:36 pm #80821
Only if he wanted the end of the Conservative party and the ascendence of the Brexit party.June 25, 2019 at 10:09 am #80843
Perhaps we could all indicate what we think will happen on or before 31st Oct.

None of the above.
A temporary agreement under Article 24 of the GATT between the UK and the EU establishing the continuation of the current trading arrangements, leading to a future free trade agreement.June 25, 2019 at 11:02 am #80850
Johnson as PM …. Another delay followed by a general election, as MP’s on both extremes of their parties make it impossible to get a majority for either agreeing a deal or no deal.
Hunt as PM …. Another Delay followed by more discussions with the EU on the terms of a backstop, followed by a general election when MP’s refuse to agree on voting any amended deal through.June 25, 2019 at 12:02 pm #80856
As I understand it, if push comes to shove, the UK can leave the EU on 31st October by the simple process of a minister signing a commencement order (which does not involve parliament).June 25, 2019 at 4:28 pm #80881
The challenge is out:June 25, 2019 at 5:57 pm #80884
Did you hear Johnson talking about how he would leave the EU on Oct 31st, in his TV interview last night. He genuinely did not have a clue about the legalities of his so called plan, and appeared to be be making it up as he went along.
Most candidates that were voted out of the election for Tory leader were able to explain their Brexit position more succinctly than Boris. He will not last twelve months if he becomes Prime Minister due to his unreliable (uncontrollable?) and devious persona, and the UK cannot afford any more political turmoil.
Boris has undeniable charisma (so I’m told) but he lacks everything else.June 29, 2019 at 7:16 pm #81165
As things stand no more opposition debates before 31 Oct. I feel Johnson will if PM suspend parliament ensuring UK departure from EU.July 9, 2019 at 11:41 am #82276
Interest in Brexit has wained, temporarily I imagine, as after the summer recess we shall see high levels of activity resulting in excitement. A debate is being broadcast but much interest now focussed on cricket semi finals.July 9, 2019 at 1:27 pm #82279
Not so sure..
Labour’s manoeuvring today, amounts to a shift to being a remain party, although ambiguous as ever in the detail. So that’s 3.5 million labour leave voters betrayed for the sake of the Islington Marxists. Democracy?July 9, 2019 at 3:44 pm #82290

Hope so worst labour leader in years

I believe if labour under his “leadership” ever got into power, he’d be removed quickly and replaced by the hard-line Marxists. For now, he’s little more than the “useful idiot”.July 9, 2019 at 4:07 pm #82295
well ive always said hes a puppet chancer just changing with the wind controlled by momentum. throughout the brexit fiasco hes just manouvered and plotted to try and get an election. now he senses that he can push that through by being the remainer.
will never vote labour again.July 9, 2019 at 6:39 pm #82305
I feel Labour will now lose dozens of seats up North. Also in London where Libs may excel? Labour a total fiasco.July 9, 2019 at 7:13 pm #82308
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Labour know there won’t be a GE any time soon. They are working towards 2022. And Corbyn doesn’t have the intellect to plot and connive. Look to those behind him.</p>July 9, 2019 at 8:18 pm #82311
There is talk of confidence vote and if that vote succeeds an early election woukd follow.
