    So whither Rees Mogg?

    Has Moggie shot himself in both of his very privileged paws in respect of leadership of the Tories.
    Said it before but he wont be the leader as he is a living parody of some posh Tory toff. Which is amusing for 5 minutes and will appeal to certain types, but will quickly wear very thin with a lot of he electorate.

    Not prohibited.

    But rather awkward constitutionally - and perhaps even legally - unless a workaround of an 1829 Act of Parliament is made.

    I'd have used 'epitome' and added 'condescending'! But otherwise, a perfect description!

    Not sure whether he or Bozo would be more embarrassing for the Tories!

    It is a worry that there appears so little talent running the country at the moment and there is no one from the other parties who you would trust to run the country either.

    Even as a tory supporter I feel that the most credible recent candidate was David Milliband - Labour shot themselves in the foot by selecting his brother as leader.

    Nothing stopping him returning.

    Or maybe Chuka Umunna will change his mind...

    Can't think of anyone on the Tory side. I though May was the best bet to make decent fist of it - how wrong was I.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And with just the October medal to go - I've got to 8.3

    Boris is prowling again for the top job, seems yesterday's Telegraph 10 point piece is a move on his part with the paper backing him strongly for PM's job, RuthieD slapped it down on twitter as bad timing/disloyalty given the tube terror incident and May is silent. Has Boris caculated this well? Seems like he wants PM job sooner rather than later. Was backing out last year for Tory leadership therefore a well planned decision from Boris or just luck that May has turned out to be fairly hopeless, thereby increasing Boris's chances massively now.
    IMO if BJ takes a run at the leadership soon he'll win. May carries no weight with the 1922 lot.
    Thought of PM Johnson would have worried me greatly a year ago but now I'm not sure - maybe he would make a better PM and could handle the EU/Brexit business more effectively.
    Thoughts?

    I might not agree with David Davies politics but I think he's head and shoulders above anything in UK politics at present.... bring back David Milliband!!

    The guy is a nasty opportunist. He was one of the main players in Brexit where he was mostly driven by personal greed and a wish to get rid of Cameron so he could become PM and he was prepared to screw the country up to achieve that. He wrote 2 columns, one for Brexit and one against and basically chose which one to use based on what was best for his political career. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...-a7363781.html He is regarded as a joke by most respected foreign governments who surprisingly enough do not buy into the 'posh endearing toff' shtick. https://www.theatlantic.com/internat...-boris/491381/ He is now repeating the 350 million claim one minute (which we all know is a lie) and going back on it the next. Following Trump in the 'if I just say enough lies they will believe some of it' tactics. And in his 10 point plan for Brexit success, one of his points was.

    Brexit will be a success, This country will succeed in our new national enterprise, and will succeed mightily.”

    That is not a plan, it is just a vague statement of what he wants to happen. He's seen how Trump seems to say any old BS and some people lap it up so he's trying the same. It's like me putting a 10 point plan to get down to scratch with one of the points being 'I will get down to scratch and I will feel great'

    He is a joke and to me is says so much about the paucity of potential leaders of this country of him and Rees Mogg are seriously being considered. Is that the best we can offer, harking back to the 1800s when we were ruled by posh toffs from Eton and we knew our place.' I wish the UK would just look forwards for a change, not back with some Thatcher clone or the type of leaders who were in charge when we last has an empire. Move on, nothing to see here.....

    There are so many of them, there must be a reasonable competent Tory hiding somewhere. They just don't seem to be able to get them onto the front benches. And from the back benchers we only hear of the one guy who reminds me of Sir Norman Fry.

    Ladies and gentlemen, the actions of an alleged serious contender to lead this country in the brave new world after Brexit.
