    No I think he will do a solid job, just like he did as Mayor of London or Brexit leader.

    I was talking about Osborne, because I was talking to Blue Mason who is a major fan of his. At the time of the last Convention both May and Osborne were vying to be the next leader after Dave. I specifically remember them being told to stop jockeying for position by Dave. Had they won the referendum, then dave could easily have given his mate Georige his support as heir apparent.

    Boris is different. She has to placate the Brexit side , we dont know what deals may have been done, we dont know how they get on.Same for Gove, but she knows what he was like in government and she also knows what he did to Boris.

    I was suprised she hadnt taken Leadsom on, she sill might, but we dont know how offended or not she might have been by the mother gaffe.

    I see she got Enviornment.

    I bet you're pro Theresa

    Unsure yet. Impressed how she has been a bit brutal and assembled her own team, but tbh shes a bit don descript so far.

    Cant say i thought she was a stunning Home Sec.
    There wasnt a leadership battle.
    We dont really know what she stands for.
    She has a free run as the Labour part is literally destroying itself.

    Must be a big let down for George from Chancellor to potential PM one day and oit on his ear the next.

    Theresa cannot surpass cameron.
    Funny thing is if the UK chose to remain, Osborne would have became pm.
