Look at previous Tory leadership contests as often the favourites have been beaten by conciliatory candidates who can unite the warring factions within the Conservative party.

I don't think it's possible to unite the two sides a new pm will have to pick a side and run with it.

Just for balance it applies to the Labour party as well.

Re: Leadership who is the next PM?

Taking a look across the pond at the 23 Democratic candidates makes 11 candidates for PM seem reasonable.

Re: Leadership who is the next PM?

Amusingly, there are now more Conservative leadership candidates (11) than there are Conservative MEPs (9).

Enough for a football team at least as all they need now is a manager.

Think you can rule Hancock out, he was a shambles on Breakfast tv this morning. Couldn't explain why councils were running out of money and couldn't care for the elderly in future. Maybe it was a bit early for him but Naga Munchetty ripped him apart and left a stuttering mess...

Small flaw in your otherwise reasonable argument - you’re assuming competency will be a deciding factor in the leadership election...

Re: Leadership who is the next PM?

When you watch interviews like this one, it is unthinkable that any sane person would want Boris for PM:

Doubt it

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-48445430

My thoughts are that regardless of what happens the tories will not want a potential leader to be anywhere near this as they attempt to rebuild the party and it's profile. They'll want whiter than white (image, not race)

Boris might self-detonate on the campaign trial again.
