    So David Cameron has fallen on his sword and will be gone by October.

    Who do you think will take his place? Are we set for prime minister Boris Johnson?
    I'm kind of hoping for Stephen Crabb, but that's mainly so I can say that our prime minister is Mr Kraaaaaabs.

    Good but he'd have to give up his DWP leadership role which would leave it open to the return of the nasty IDS as DWP secretary. There are a lot of poor people, disabled people etc who would terrified at the return of IDS. The man who created benefit sanctions, bedroom tax, workfare, work capability assessments that wrongly declared disabled as fit to work. Benefit cuts etc.

    Just because he looks like a bit of a prat doesn't mean hes not capable of running the country. Lots of intelligent people often look inadequate however then prove themselves to be much better than first thought.

    Cant really see how it can be anyone else except Boris along with Gove as Chancellor , Farage in charge of the NHS and Hanaan as Home Secretary.
    I cant see how anyone who didnt vote Brexit can be in the government.

    Honest question. What makes Boris johnson an ineffective leader? What does he lack that someone like, cameron for example, possesses?

    Secondly, where has boris johnson gained a reputation for being a bit of a clown?

    I'm waiting for someone to edit a historic painting to show Boris stabbing Cameron in the back.
    serah.exe seems to be very talented at this sort of stuff. It may even become viral on the geeky twittersphere if it's good enough

    Perhaps she could photoshop Boris Johnson and DC's faces onto one of these images of a past PM being assassinated?

    Interestingly it seems that Boris may be smarter than i gave him credit for. It's now confirmed that his two running mates will be Gove (quite popular among MP's - many were pushing for him to run) and a remain guy from NI (this gives him a claim to unity). Not only that but it now seems that Osbourne has been offered the choice of chancellor or foreign with Gove taking the other and heading the exit negotiations.

    It's a good move from him but i'd still expect May to win the MP's ballot.

    Interesting stance from the Independent regarding Cameron screwing Boris by not enacting article 50..

    If he runs for leadership of the party, and then fails to follow through on triggering Article 50, then he is finished. If he does not run and effectively abandons the field, then he is finished. If he runs, wins and pulls the UK out of the EU, then it will all be over - Scotland will break away, there will be upheaval in Ireland, a recession ... broken trade agreements. Then he is also finished. Boris Johnson knows all of this. When he acts like the dumb blond it is just that: an act.

    ok so you're saying that the former prime minister just wants to see his fellow MP's and the country burn to the ground? nice one. I think its more the fact that he resigned and felt it should be in their hands

    Nope - he has hated Boris since their time at Eton. There really is no love lost between them.
