    Hi guys. As many you will probably know, Theresa May has now resigned as Prime Minister, and there's presently a leadership contest on to elect a new Prime Minister. But which of the candidates would you most like to win?


    In the contest, we presently have:
    • Boris Johnson
    • Jeremy Hunt
    • Michael Gove
    • Sajid Jhavid
    • Dominic Raab
    • Rory Stewart

    From what I know, I think Rory Stewart is my personal choice. He seems like a nice guy and has good ideas.


    But who would you pick?

    Personally, I'd put them all into a room doused in petrol and set it alight.

    You can get arrested for typing stuff like that these days.

    ... I agree wholeheartedly.

    I think Rory Stewart may be the least bad option...

    but really it's frustrating how much coverage this is all getting considering how few of us actually have a vote

    The fact Boris Johnson is the most likely to get the job says all you need to know about the state of politics in this country.

    It's great to see The Weakest Link is back on TV. I used to love that show

    I've seen several different outlets suggest that Rory Stewart is "the man that everybody who would never dream of voting Conservative anyway would like to win".

    I agree that he is the least bad option.

    Of course that means that the Tory membership will never vote for him in a million years.

    I don't think any of them should be allowed to run a bath let along the country unsupervised, but just because of the sheer cries of REEEEEEEEEEE it will bring from the rabid left, I hope Boris wins, can you imagine, Boris, Trump and Putin...

    Antifa or the likes of the Muslim Defence League may finally be pushed over the edge with all that rancid imaginary racism theyll have to deal with and try something that shows to Joe Public their true colours and they finally get the domestic terrorist group label they deserve rather than the "counter protestor" one they presently have.

    I wouldnt look too much into the coverage, which makes out like it's a presidential system when its not. Nobody has ever voted directly for a prime minister in the UK. Party members vote for a leader and we vote in MPs to parliament. It's a general election that would make a difference

    Usually, when another country somewhere else in the world doesn't let the lowly plebs have a say in who their next leader is... Our leaders bomb them.

    So it looks like the least worst option has been voted out...

    In a general election some people DO vote for their leader!

    Anyway, given the situation we are currently in and the mess the Tories have made of it, we absolutely should be given a general election.
