What are everyone's thoughts on the latest set of results?

It certainly looks like Boris is on track to be the next PM but maybe he'll mess up in the debate tonight, or votes will begin to cluster around one of the other candidates as more are eliminated or pull out (if that happens).

Personally I am not a Boris supporter and would prefer one of the others, although to be honest I think I would struggle to decide which one were I eligible to vote, as none really stand out. I am glad Raab was eliminated however.

Boris will win.

If Stewart wins, or even makes the final two I’ll put my underwear on my head and sing copacabana.

Raab gone is a roadblock cleared for Boris, now he's the candidate after the hardest Brexit achievable. Although there was never really doubt that Boris was going to run through this contest like a freight train in the first place.

Nice to see Stewart surviving another round, as a non-Tory he's the most palatable option on the ballot and not just because he's the only one acknowledging how dire a no-deal Brexit would be.

Hopefully the metaphorical shivs will come out for Boris in the debate tonight, if he's going to walk this contest I hope he comes out the other side with his public perception in absolute tatters.

Have you considered the fact that I might actually want to do it, I’m just looking for an excuse?

To be honest, I'm not a big fan of anyone in this Leadership Contest. It's kind of just who's the least s*** out of them, and for me that's Boris. Had Moggy stood in the contest, it would be a whole different matter!

It's now almost a certainty that borris will be the next PM, he has so much support he can almost rig who he wants to 'fight' in the final two!

Haha fantastic!

As for the serious comments in this thread, I agree that Boris looks set to win. I’m just hoping for a surprise.

Indeed, he would have been the biggest turd of the pile.

On the flip side though, at least it proves beyond any reasonable doubt that these cockroaches really do put party before country.

Hope springs eternal for this chap. His books rather interesting as well, unlike the rest of them he's actually led a very exciting life - not just railing coke on fleet street or banging the secretary...

Why only metaphorical? :rolleyes: In fairness to him though his public perception is already (arguably) in tatters. He used to draw most of his support from the middle classes and city dwellers who now seem to despise him with a passion.

Based on their voting records, there is almost nothing to separate the candidates. Boris is probably the most moderate if only because he doesn't vote as often as the others.

Hunt is a veritable sociopath who is more responsible than anyone else for the NHS literally falling down. I thought him invoking the experience of a self-harming young woman was revolting given that savage cuts to mental health services were his orders.

Not great, since I was confident he would get through given the ballot earlier in the day. And I felt a Boris Gove showdown would be better than Boris Hunt.

But, on the bright side I don’t have to sing Copacabana whilst I have my undies on my head.

He was doing better than Hunt at that ballot so it did seem he was pulling in front, but alas.

Shame.

At least one of the MPs for Surrey are still in the contest. I did say I'd vote for anyone but Boris so guess I'm going with Jeremy Hunt. Would of wanted Gove though would of given Boris a proper fight in the hustings.

I think the borris camp fixed it to be Hunt vs Johnson so they can get their man in no 10.

Personally I don't understand why you would want either, and I'm a pretty hard core Brexitier.
