1st Tory Leader ballot today.....

Voting will take place by secret ballot in the Commons, with a result expected some time after 13.00 BST.

Any of the 10 candidates who fails to secure at least 17 votes will be eliminated from the contest.

Further ballots will be held next week, with the two most popular MPs moving to a run-off of Tory party members.

Tory leadership: Matt Hancock quits contest

I hear politicians (and callers to LBC) are PUSHING Rory Stewart :roll
Stewart strikes me as "less than serious" candidate... and a Remoaner plant.... would opt for May's deal or similar, or even more delay. Those who suggest Stewart are trying too get the nearest they can to a Remoaner

Farage Milkshake terrorist, Paul Crowther - GUILTY!

Image

On Tuesday, Crowther, from Newcastle, appeared at North Tyneside Magistrates Court where he pleaded guilty to common assault and criminal damage.

District Judge Bernard Begley told Crowther he had carried out an "act of crass stupidity" and also ordered him to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.

And after the prosecution suggested Crowther should pay compensation to have Mr Farage's suit cleaned, the judge ordered the 32-year-old to pay the politician £350.

He was also ordered to pay an £85 victim surcharge & £85 costs

Dominic Raab - GONE!

Image


An hour ago we learned that five of the six leadership hopefuls had made it through to the next round. Dominic Raab - perhaps the hardest Brexiteer, on the face of it at least - was eliminated.

Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Sajid Javid, Jeremy Hunt and Rory Stewart all go through and will take part in the BBC leadership debate that begins at 20:00 BST.

https://www.bbc.com/news/live/uk-politics-48678723

Shame he was best of a very bad bunch :94

Raab described as the ONLY true "Leaver" in the pack... I agree... and he is gone. :doh

So UK gets Boris as PM... what a farce!... and I doubt he will get a BREXIT at all.

These Tory rats are HOPELESS....

Candidates get heated during Conservative leadership debate
ODN
Published on Jun 18, 2019



Already PLANNING TO FAIL on Brexit again....

"If we get to October the 31st and we are "almost there" we will need another (small) extension... "

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? :wall

They could NOT quite "get there" after 2 years by 29th March, and so sought a small extension to April 12th... and still failed... so they begged for a SIX MONTH extension to end October... and promptly went on vacation, stuffed about with other elections, new party leaders etc.. and have done NOTHING to make Brexit happen in past 2 months..... and are already admitting DEFEAT on that even though they still have FOUR FUCKING MONTHS RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!

GET IT DONE!!

For once I love the Sun Headline....


NECK AND NECK Rory Stewart’s tie removal trick leaves viewers baffled as

Tory leadership debate dubbed ‘world’s worst boyband’


https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9325127/r ... er-debate/

:lol


Image
https://twitter.com/badlefty/status/1141066191047405568


And at the end of this farcical "Boy band" gig.. it gets even more farcical when the reaction to it all... by a (Scottish female) average voter.... was to dismiss them ALL because...

'Climate Change is an issue for today, not tomorrow"... :doh
The Environmentalist Cult Brainwashing force is STRONG in UK.. looks to me like the Sith and the Dark side have full control of UK (and Europe) "Climate change" hysteria!!


As I have said many times... The people get the government they deserve :roll

Opinion - Analysis of the "Boy Band Gig".....

The result was five shrill, shouty blokes and a testy presenter screeching over the lot of them. I don’t know if this is a sensible process for choosing a prime minister but it should terrify our enemies that we’re crazy enough to go about it this way.


Why the Tory party should worry about this leadership debate
The Spectator
Stephen Daisley

If you’ve ever been in group therapy, you will have recognised many of the behaviour types in the BBC’s Tory leadership debate. There was Mr Avoidance (Boris Johnson), who kept his head down and let the clock run out, and Mr Calculating (Jeremy Hunt), who kept his interjections to a minimum and studiously ignored his rivals in favour of speaking directly to the inquisitive punters.

There was The Overachiever (Michael Gove), trying to one-up everyone by boasting about his achievements in government and his many plans to solve all of Britain’s ills. Sajid Javid was the Passive-Aggressive Snarker, agreeing with Gove here, jabbing Boris there, and mugging sceptically throughout Rory Stewart’s every answer. For his part, Stewart was the Obsessive-Compulsive Antagonist, unable to resist an opportunity to point out how different he was from the other candidates by slaughtering one Tory sacred cow after another.

So many personality disorders, so few personalities, and proceedings were not assisted by Emily Maitlis, who couldn’t decide whether she wanted to be a moderator or an interrogator and ended up the substitute teacher who couldn’t hack the problem class. The result was five shrill, shouty blokes and a testy presenter screeching over the lot of them. I don’t know if this is a sensible process for choosing a prime minister but it should terrify our enemies that we’re crazy enough to go about it this way.

Apparently... The ONE THING that all five candidates agreed on was.........


There should be an INVESTIGATION OF ISLAMOPHOBIA IN THE TORY PARTY :wall


This is NOT a joke... well it was reported on LBC so... ya know... :roll

"Islamophobia" is a word made up by the Left and Fake News... there is no such thing.... it is now just a swear word...
