Back by popular demand; this year's tory leadership election poll!

Assuming that May does wield the revolver and do the decent thing at some stage in the coming month...who will win the glittering prize?

The names listed are those offered by William Hill on 07/12/18 ordered by price at time.

If you do go for the 'other' option please try to post in thread the name & reasoning for your suggestion :)

I don't gamble, but if I were to put any actual £ on this, I think I'd go for Hunt as another 'centrist' (by tory standards) candidate of 'unity'.

In my befuddled head I could always see (Sir) Graham Brady as a future leader, he comes over as principled, well respected and the media appears to like and listen to him. Whether he is primed at the moment I’m not sure. But I also suspect many of the Westminster Tories are glad Ruth Davidson is not a sitting Westminster MP.
 

co-op

Free the rhubarb crumble!
Shouldn't there be an option for 2 leaders for the post-split conservatives, one pro-Brexit party, one Remainer?

principled? a tory, principled?
 

Teaboy

It definitely looks brighter over there..
No Theresa May option?

She doesn't seem keen on giving her job up quite yet. If its a leadership challenge she'd stand for reelection I reckon.

Gove is probably the least worse I reckon. Still dreadful but he doesn't seem to be a total headbanger.

Only in as much as he resigned because they dropped pushing grammar schools. Not toadyism to the front bench like some do.
Like those toads from the back benches that lick the PMs arse at PMQs.
Asking weasel questions to try and get on the ministry ladder, snakes the lot of them!
where's st patrick when you need him? he could do for britain what he so famously did for ireland

From the above list though I’d expect Hunt and the reputation damaged Gove to be top choices. Though none should be considered leader material.

someone i know once worked in a medical library, through which various body parts were brought to a laboratory where they were sliced up by medical students. the organs and that were always referred to as 'the material'. i look forward to the day when the potential tory leadership candidates are 'the material'.

That will be the first time the Tories actually help the NHS!

Bizarre that Raab is favourite. I don't think that would stand up to an actual leadership campaign.

If they've any sense they'll elect Gove. They don't though, so probably some fucking idiot.
Like that punt; some fucking idiot :thumbs:

One of the things that has come out of this Brexit chaos is that it has shown up how little support the likes of Rees Mogg and the other headbangers actually have, amongst the PCP anyway.

The selectorate.
The geriatric membership only get the choice of the two chosen by the PCP...and that's only if they don't anoint a new leader unopposed again.

Gove is probably the most capable but I reckon Hunt followed by Raab are the most likely, I think BoJo is a no-hoper, he's probably more popular with the voters than the others but not with his fellow MP's
I'm slightly disturbed by the odds on Mogg the Merciless.

rather than have a vote they should force the candidates to complete the grand national course. then we'd see who really had it in them, before shipping them to the venice of the south atlantic.
See them hauling a huge gondola full of their broken promises overland from Goose Green to Port Stanley in a shite remake of Fitzcarraldo.

Surely that should be a Glorious post-Brexit celebration of Shackleton - where they drag a boat full of building materials over the mountains of South Georgia?

In the winter.

With no clothes on.

Wearing crampons turned upside down.
