    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.

    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>

    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?

    Only if he wanted the end of the Conservative party and the ascendence of the Brexit party.

    Perhaps we could all indicate what we think will happen on or before 31st Oct.

    WTO Exit

    May’s deal

    Another Deal

    Another delay

    Revocation of A50

    General Election.

    I’m going to opt for another deal.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    As things stand no more opposition debates before 31 Oct. I feel Johnson will if PM suspend parliament ensuring UK departure from EU.

    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.

    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?

    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”.

    I feel Labour will now lose dozens of seats up North. Also in London where Libs may excel? Labour a total fiasco.
