Betting odds are between

Boris Johnson
Michael Gove
Sajid Javid
Dominic Raab

Boris would win heavily amongst grassroots but is unlikely to get enough support from his colleagues. Despite itching to be the ones to have the first BAME party leader I’d be surprised if Javid was elected (he’s a remainer and a Arab) that leaves the neocons Gove and Raab. I imagine they both agree on pretty much everything apart that Gove seems to favour a softer brexit.

I think Gove would have more suppprt from Colleagues but that Raab may have more grassroots support.

Thoughts?

Corbyn vs Gove

Hezbollah Corbyn vs Zionist Gove.

It would be worth seeing Gove lose just to see Rakas21 go full on Pinochet 😂

While Mogg would be best, Boris is probably more realistic.

For a party that claims to value merit, ability and hard work, they have some exceptionally limited characters at the top.

I'd go for Chris Grayling.

Of course.

But that soneone of such stunted aptitude is a minister says a lot about the current state of the Conservative party.

It depends who puts themselves forward.

As someone mentioned earlier it’s a two part election first by MP’s down to two candidates then the membership chooses from the two.

Whilst Boris is apparently popular with the membership he is unpopular in the party.

My personal favourite would be Mogg but I think a realistic favourite among both MP’s and members would be Davis

Although as a cockroach we should not rule out May surviving i think you can basically split the Tories into 4 with two clear favourates among mp's but the members complicating matters.

Remoaners - Probably Rudd, probably only has 30 mp's if that

Moderates/remainers/pragmatists - Probably Hunt (javid and hammond the outsiders) these are basically the mayites and probably the second largest group of 100 mp's plus.

Moderates/leavers/pragmatists - Gove/Raab/Boris, while not a majority of the cabinet this group is a majority of Tory mp's with over 100 members.

ERG/Ultra - mogg, while a growing part of the party (but a distant third now) these mp's will be vital in terms of whether they unify and go to the membership with one candidate or whether they back a moderate leaver.

My personal expectation is Hunt vs Gove. While Gove will have an early lead it is worth saying that on every occasion in the past century that the Tories have made an incumbent leadership change it has gone to the Chancellor or Prime Minster (bar May).

Not being one to go against a centuries worth of analogues, my money would be on Hunt.

Why are you saying that the Home Secretary is "a Arab"?
He is a uk citizen of asian descent born in Lancashire.

That’s what I said, just a lot more PC and waffle.

Dogs, stables and horses come to mind

As low as my expectations are I can’t see them choosing Hunt, who is about as popular as Abu Hamza. Hammond is more likely although I highly doubt it. That leaves Sajid and Gove as the big hitters of the cabinet. Liz Truss is also mentioned a lot but she seems very light weight.

I am Almost certain it will be between someone in cabinet and someone outside but with cabinet experience so basically Boris or Raab vs Gove etc

I would love to see Jeremy Hunt delivering a Patrick Bateman-esque monologue about the world’s problems - he would probably say it with even less emotion

Too many remainers, they are not going to put a pro brexit individual in charge.
