    And just in case anyone needs a memory refresh - read this.

    It really doesn't matter who loses. Whether it is Gove or Hunt, neither will be the winner.

    Obviously, but there is an important human interest angle here.

    The two leadership contenders have something in common too. When they report the winner, how will we know which one it was?

    And i could be completely wrong headed in my thinking - but i still think that BoJo is the Brexit sacrificial lamb (short term PM), and Hunt is the one the Tory Party want to keep 'good' for afters.

    You're on the right tracks, but you haven't seen the bigger picture.

    When all the contenders have sacrificed themselves, a man will step up from the shadows, and lead everyone to salvation.

    And that man is... Chris Grayling.

    Actually he did intend to put himself forward for the leadership, but accidentally put his application form into the shredder instead.

    Oh no, you're not serious, are you? :eek:

    Neither will the Tory Party be. As the field moves towards the right, it makes the Lib-dems more appealing to centrist tory voters. Boris, the gift that just keeps taking.

    Well, that’s my favoured top two to deliver Remain. Phew. Thought Gove was getting close. Good thing Johnson scuppered it and boosted Hunt. All three are mad, but Gove is proper mad. Imagine Iran attacked a British ship in the sea? What would he do? Dread to think.

    So, Hunt 'happy to kick the can' against Johnson 'run to the front of the biggest crowd shouting follow me'. That will do me.

    That was probably the party's intention when they first put him in charge of counting the votes to see Rory Stewart get through to the final.

    Wash out your mouth!
    Do not mention JRM in the same breath as Chelsea legend and top scorer Super Frankie Lampard.

    Indeed, Lampard got his breaks through nepotism, a rich father with connections.

    JRM......oh hold on.....nothing to see here folks - look, a rainbow!!!!

    No - Lampard got his breaks by being an exceptionally talented footballer.

    Rees -Mogg got his breaks by having rich parents.

    ...and unlike Rees-Mogg - Lampard isn't a delusional right wing, selfish nonentity.

    Shame on him! Why didn't he choose to have poor parents?
