    Right now, it's so tempting to do just that!
    Then you can get me a spritzer... JK, I've had enough alcohol for now!

    But seriously, do whatever you can to prepare for the exams. Some preparation is better than no preparation...

    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.
    Even I love a nice Tory!

    It's definitely their electoral strategy though. If they're seen as nice they're definitely more likely to be voted in; Labour is still seen by many as 'incompetent'...

    Don't worry, you're not having a spritzer. We've run out of lemonade and carbonated water xD So you're just having the wine. Perhaps a Pinot Grigio for this hot day!

    Haha yeh, I'm gonna try do some later, right now, I'm enjoying Masterchef USA!

    Davidson needs to continue the job in Scotland first, no point removing her from there right before elections when she is a very good thing for the Tories is Scotland, England and Wales are safe without her for now.

    It certainly is better than revision! I wouldn't mind so much if there was questions for me to practice, because then I feel like I'm doing something, it's just that for the one tomorrow, I've just gotta learn the theory, and hope for the best really!

    The amount of silly things Cameron does that harms the remain campaign, I'm starting to think Cameron is a closet eurosceptic

    I don't think Osborne could win TBH; as time goes on he's becoming more and more unpopular amongst the electorate.
    Though as with Corbyn, the party and the electorate could have polar views.

    Regardless, I still think Boris is more popular with both.

    The question with Boris is the leadership side and IR side

    Why do you think Boris' popularity has somewhat soared in the leadership question?

    Do people relate to his "lovable buffoon" persona, or is it more that the other possible candidates, May Osborne etc are just much less desirable?

    Or perhaps people actually agree with his policies, though I'd imagine not a huge amount of people are particularly aware of what he actually stands for, other than to leave the EU.
