    ^ this! Just like BoJo she is a sellout with no values and she only cares about her political career. She's an idiot, extremely incompetent and clueless. Dangerous.


    If she wins the race, it would be a victory for Labour BUT bad news for the country. Even though both of them are awful, and ready to destroy the country's economy, give more money to their mates and torture the working class, I think Trust is slightly worse based on the extreme ideas she's selling to the conservatives.

    Penny’s out

    Sunak vs Truss - I don’t see Liz winning the public vote unless she lives Rishi hell in the next debate.

    They will surely go with Truss, who it looks like picked up the most of Tom’s support. But I can’t see Rishi losing this.

    I hope so, and I pick Truss over Sunak. As long as Penny gets no where near.

    The interesting thing will be whoever goes next out of Penny or Liz, will their voters go towards the other female. Either way, we’re doomed whatever.

    Despite Rishi and Liz pulling out of the next TV debate on Sky News due to ‘squabbling’, the BBC have announced a TV debate for next Monday with the remaining candidates.

    And then there were three:
    • Rishi Sunak - 118
    • Penny Mordaunt - 92
    • Liz Truss - 86
    • Kemi Badenoch - 59

    She's quite openly right-wing and seems to want to appeal to that sort of voter, so she would be a dangerous PM IMO. She has also criticised the online safety bill, which is being designed to protect children from harmful content, saying we shouldn't be "legislating for hurt feelings"

    All of the remaining candidates for the leadership of a conservative party being women and / or people of color is.. something.

    We had zero last time.

    Liz, Rishi and Penny are all just more of the same. Tom is just David Cameron (talks a good game) and Kimi talks a lot of sense but just doesn’t show any sort of leadership.

    Rishi’s going to end up winning.

    Not surprised...

    Tugendhat knocked out of Tory leadership contest


    Tom Tugendhat's bid to be the next Tory leader has come to an end, leaving four contenders in the race to take over the reins from Boris Johnson.

    Best known as the chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Tugendhat secured 30 votes, leaving him in last place.

    Tom Tugendhat is not having a good night so far - other than one good one liner, he's not been very good (just keeps talking about his time in the military!).

    Tomorrow, the 5 become 4 and by Wednesday, the 4 become 2.

    Love how they all refused to hire Boris when the question was asked.
    Well how many of us would choose to hire one of our former bosses given the chance

    Bizarre how we've seen these debates between different parties over the years, but seeing the Tories (supposed) best candidates all turn on each other is a revelation
