If that load of idiots is the best that’s in offer for the next PM then ‘We’re Doomed!’.

I thought Rory Stewart would be out of the race today, and tomorrow Javid will be out I suspect.

Oh well, at least the swimsuit round will be a laugh.

Well said max very interesting

Which bits did you particularly like, lemon?


A UK where is no poverty, disease is all but vanquished, people in our supposedly first world country are not using foodbanks, where many are homeless, where (according to the UN) over 30% of children live in poverty. Where the ultra rich are free to exploit the system and avoid paying their taxes, where total incompetents can ruin the railways, where schools are critically short of funds, where the elderly face an uncertain future, where social services are fast disappearing,....

I was rather impressed with that and so, I think, would be other posters on here who could reel off the same list.
All caused or exacerbated by the last 9 years of tory government 'austerity' of course... I don't think our solution would be the blessed Nigel, though... Or leaving the EU...
