After recent polls, EU Parliament elections and the by election I'm wondering why there's not more talk about the LibDems leadership contest. Afterall they're on the rise as one of the few parties that has actually got a policy on Brexit namely remain!
Of course more fun talking about one nation tories. astonishing is that anyway? Are they planning independence for England or something?
So shall we summarise the candidates, please add to the list as appropriate.
Boris - highly organised campaign that's sucking up to tories despite not having announced his candidacy. Taken drugs (allegedly I think), cheated on wife/wives (not to be trusted) and is a buffoon likely to embarrass himself and the office should he get it.
Gove - very intelligent media preformer, nobody really likes him and he's admitted drug use 20 years ago (anyone believe that timescale?) and was the front runner after Boris but had a better chance because nobody campaigning against him.
Jeremy Hunt - Amber Rudd supports him. Media performer, had leading cabinet positions, inoffensive candidate and jeez I couldn't vote for him and I'm almost a vote for a dustbin with a blue rosette (not actually true since I've voted Labour and LibDems too).
That former soldier guy with the almost schoolboy face who's name I can't remember - I think that explains my view of his chances.
Dominic Raab - Brexit supporter who's right wing mad! Scary that for a staunch supporters of brexit he's not supported by Jacob rhees smogg.
I can't really remember anyone else so guess they've got no chance.
Anyone want to add to my comments or change them as appropriate? Could be good fun.
After this, a thread on the LibDems leadership contest might be helpful. Probably more LibDem supporters on here than tory ones afterall.
