    Osborne has indirectly Confrimed he is definitely Standing in the leadership election when ever it is
    He may have a chance if we don't leave the EU, otherwise I think Boris is favorite.

    I don't think Osborne could win TBH; as time goes on he's becoming more and more unpopular amongst the electorate.

    Osbourne was actually really unpopular in 2012 before he recovered for 2015 (and then screwed himself again of course). Underestimating Osbourne would be a mistake i think if he really has another 3 years.

    I'm certainly not going to rule him out yet, as he probably has some tricks up his sleeve. 3 years could well be enough time for him to make just enough of an impact on the electorate.

    Life_peer The possible legislation that you may propose looks very good indeed. Is it a joke?

    So, I'm sat here with exams tomorrow, Tuesday and Thursday and I'm thinking... How dare I do any revision on this Holy day, the Sabbath.

    Because of this Holy day, I will be sure to be as lazy as possible and to honour this day, and trust in God to guide me through these exams!

    Interesting to see Osborne say this morning that Cameron wouldn't step down until 2019.

    Is that because he wants to give the new leader a year to implement some 'nice policies' and giveaways as govts always do before elections so as to shield him/her from some of the more unpopular decisions before then?

    Also doesn't seem certain that Cameron wouldn't face a leadership election before then.
    Cameron is unlikely to fall until he chooses to leave, and giveaways before elections always happen, it's the way things work.

    Yeah I know. Was just wondering if it was because he wanted the new leader to be seen as the nice one, rather than making him take unpopular decisions before then. As an electoral strategy.

    Britain loves a 'nice' Tory.
    Also I think you lot need to get Ruth Davidson more involved in the English party, she's brilliant and has detoxified the Tories in Scotland - an astonishing achievement.
    Although I can't see myself ever voting Tory, I'd be far more likely to if someone like her was leader.
