Cameron has resigned and the race is on.
So far we have various names mentioned.
Johnson (words fail me, unlike the deliberately tousled one)
Steven Crabbe (who? you say - he was until recently Secretary of State for Wales which is a bit like being President of Ireland - you turn up on official occasions and make a bland speech)
May (she who has been hiding in the girls toilet for the last few months while the boys have a nasty eye-gouging fight in the corridors)
Jeremy (I'm selling off NHS England via the back entrance) Hunt.
Any other contenders? Who will be the bookies' favourite? and who will win?

Nice to have a shiny new thread! Even if there's one already...

jess I was thinking Crabbe too. New boy, so far pretty much unheard of..

Theresa May? Yes, she's been very quiet, so maybe.

And GO has ruled himself out.

My money's on someone who we'd never think of as a contender-a bit like Major was, back in the day. Interesting times call for interesting solutions.

No! Not another thread on the same subject, shiny or not! hmm That would be ridiculous.

Keep up jess.
