Sir Philip Green is stepping up to the plate. Greedy, shady, wandering hands...when Boris goes to prison then Green must surely be the favourite?

I think it is now more a question as to who isn't standing. Is is true that Beyoncé is now standing?

To ensure we remain in the EU we need a no deal Brexit promising Chris Grayling to become PM.

Cometh the hour, cometh the creature! Well, creatures (lots of).

Wot hour? The hour of doom!

I see they - the 1922 Committee - have streamlined the selection process, so that instead of weekly votes for the next few months on the devil-take-the-hindmost principle, it will be done and dusted during the third week in July. (Thinks) Is that just in time for the Summer recess, so the selection process doesn't interfere with the long summer hol. Sorry, recess.

I see Gove has admitted taking cocaine / mentioned snorting coke (?) depending on POV.

Will this detract from his popularity among the traditional party membership?
Or endear him to a younger, less bigoted type of voter?

And who cares? Except for BJ that is?
