Tory Leadership Race 09:57 - May 31 with 39319 viewsDorse

Not a party political thing or a reason for an LFW punch-up, but I keep having the eerie feeling that eventually every single Tory MP will put themselves forward leaving Teresa May with the casting vote. At which point, she cackles maniacally and slowly points at Jacob Rees Mogg sitting at the back, with the entire parliamentary party turning to stare at him... He is seen to gulp and mutter 'Oh, copulate my happenstance'

'What do we want? We don't know! When do we want it? Now!'

Happenstance.

Re-watching this in the 80s or 90s I may have considered it still funny but a bit cliched, dated and twee. These days it plays like cutting-edge on-the-nose searing socio-political satire.

Not a fan of the tories by a longshot, but I do have a lot of time for Rory Stewart. Sensible, intelligent, articulate, and aware of his own absurdity. Has led an incredible life outside of politics as well. Some of the others being mentioned, Raab, Johnson, McVey et al, would be horrendous.

Nah... Look at his voting record.

And he holds his arm out to pretend he's filming on his mobile phone for his 'i'm just wandering the country speaking to the people like the Buddha' twitter videos when actually it's a camera operated by a professional crew.

I thought the pretending to hold his camera thing was quite funny to be honest. Harmless, and I like that he is just ambling around for a chat camera crew or not. Typically voted for welfare cuts and against raising taxes, so typical tory in that respect, but pro-gay marriage at least. Also whilst it was cut short, he did well in his last brief as Minister for Prisons and Probations; I work in this sector and everyone I've spoken in the service speaks highly of him. Ultimately it is a best of a bad bunch, but god what are the options? Gove?

I'd rather suffer eternal priapism that vote tory if Rory Stewart gets the Gig. He looks like he should turn up unannounced at Downton Abbey and inform the Lord he's a nephew he hasn't seen since 1876, because he's been away "in the colonies".

He would spend a few days ingratiating himself with the family and making coarse out of wedlock sexual overtures towards the Lords plain daughter with the illegitimate child, before the countess notices he doesn't know what order to use his cutlery in at the dinner table and smells a rat.

The butler would be enlisted to discretely get to the bottom of the whole thing and would end with Stewart being confronted with a bag full of stolen silver candlesticks, pocket watches and the nephew's death certificate.

Vindicated, The countess would take the train to London to see him publicly hung because "one must be able to look death in the eye."

On BBC Breakfast TV yesterday they had one of the candidates (can't remember her name) and the presenter talking about all of them acting like a game and she took umbrage to that comment and said that it's very serious businessn running the country.

After spitting my coffee out with laughter, I agree with the presenter. As per the Harry Enfield character meme above, they're all acting like a bunch of rah rah school toffs all trampling over each other to see who can become prefect.

Johnson aside (who would be an absolute disaster) - I have never seen a bigger bunch of no marks in my life. I follow politics and I've found myself going "err oh oh yeah, the woman who posts bollocks on twitter! Oh yeah, that's her!"

Great to see the unfortunately named James Cleverly enter the race

They have til 10th June to declare . I hope Steve Baker gives it a go .
Irony is for Tories who are in marginal seats Boris is probably the one with the best chance of beating Farage and Corbyn . You dont get elected Tory mayor in Labour London twice without having something that appeals to voters .

Johnson is drifting like a barge in the betting. Nobody else particularly fancied either. Nobody anywhere anyhow has any sort of clue about anything to do with this at the moment, in any respect, at all.

Boris won't have the benefit of running against Ken this time though

Boris doesn't really have a base in the parliamentary party. Apparently a lot of the newer Tory generation were pretty underwhelmed by him when he came back to Parliament - constantly late, always derailing meetings with inane trivia and trying to shoehorn in jokes apparently. I also suspect some will think he was too publicly associated with the big red bus. The Tories need someone to stave off Farage in blue heartland, but a bit of distance to keep the more liberal seats in London/SE/SW from going orange

its rapidly turning into a battle of who is the biggest village idiot. it would be quite funny if the future of our country didn't depend upon which idiot wins at this critical time.

Whatever happens I have the feeling that the Tories are done for a decade after this debacle. Although that may depend upon what the other alternatives get up to and I don't have great faith in them either.

Why stop now, just when I'm hating it

When the SNP took over all the voting in Scotland, it seemed like the Tory's would never be out of power but if Boris gets in and fks it up, we might see the back of them for good. That'd be funny if nothing else.

Whoever gets it will definitely be a complete c*nt.

Steve Baker - are you serious? All he is good for is being JRM's bag carrier and despite his best efforts to derail the Conservative party with his ERG mates he failed terribly. A complete buffoon.

Priti Patel - the same person who was fired for organising clandestine meetings with Israeli officials when she was on holiday as well as cutting aid to the Palestinians.

We should be more worried that 100,00 70plus conservative members will vote in the next PM. It will not last long as a general election is now imminent and that will be a straight shoot-out between Farage and he Lib Dems.
