    Osborne.

    Likeable, pragmatic, classical liberal.



    Disagree with him on quite a lot, esp the economy but I think he's great. Im pretty sure my other favourite conservative Ken Clarke will nominate him too.

    I think he looks better with his Caesar hair cut. He's like a good looking Mr Burns! [Edit- Actually..that is one weird nose he has....]

    Btw whose the Candidate with 2%?

    Anyway- my preferences

    Osborne: 1st
    Morgan: 2nd
    Gove 3rd


    Theresa May is my least favorite by far.

    Jeremy Hunt ( Health Secretary )

    I Think this one is better
    Spoiler:

    My Order

    1) Osborne
    2) May
    3) Hammond ( If he stands )
    3) Javid ( If Hammond does'nt stand )
    4) Hunt
    5) Fox
    6) Gove
    7) Morgan
    8) Boris

    It looks likely if we vote to leave the EU May will win the election

    Providing the status quo is maintained (Which I believe it will).

    But with economic uncertainty, a very divisive EU referendum (Which Osborne supports remaining IN) and of course who will be i the white house things are going to be unpredictable.

    No, conservative strategy has moved on to the next stage:

    its 'We can't trust Labour with the economic or national security'


    I don't really buy it. My problems with Corbyn are more philosophical plus there's fact I think he and McDonnell are, for lack of a better word: Politically retarded.

    Hopefully he will be booted out and we can reach an ideal synthesis of somebody with center left economic views and who is genuinely opposed to totalitarianism and fascism and not an appeasing relativist like Corbyn. Somebody like Hilary Benn, but who actually wants the job and untainted by New Labour.

    I don't think Theresa May is likeable enough.

    Michael Gove is talented but doesn't quite have the authority that is required.

    Pretty certain it will be George Osborne or Sajid Javid.

    Too soon for Jeremy Hunt. But he could easily be a future leader.

    She would struggle to connect with the liberal voter.

    Perhaps 20 years ago she would have been a perfect leader. Now I think Osborne or Javid would be less risky choices.

    I guess it is a risk that could pay off.

    I actually like her but clearly image is hugely important. Look at what happened to Miliband. I just don't feel she is marketable enough in today's more shallow society.

    I actually think Corbyn will be gone by 2020..similar to IDS being ousted as leader.

    If Corbyn does go will be interesting to see who labour will pick as leader going into the election
