Pensioner with 3 empty bedrooms?

Moving / downsizing at that age is not as easy as people seem to think.


Not sure how that got downvoted...

Rory Stewart. Young, energetic, a realist, track record of negotiation, a bridge builder, worked with charities, well read, and extremely brave.

He won't make the final two. If he did then I believe he could beat Boris in an open campaign.


You think the Tory membership would vote for someone arguing for a soft brexit (compromise) over Boris?

I wish you were right but i cant see it in a million years.

Hunt's personal view is that the time for abortions should be reduced. Trying to spin it that he wants to introduce laws to that affect isn't really true. He has said if a backbencher brings the bill forward (they obviously will) it will be a free vote so it has no chance of going through.

To answer your question Sitters, for me it's Hunt. The best of a pretty poor selection.

All meaningless anyway. Boris is your new PM.


This Jeremy Hunt?

Our Suffolk MPs aren’t exactly coming up with good reasons for him

It's their home. Nobody should be compelled to move.


I disagree. No 75yo single woman or man, or indeed a person of any age but specifically in this case people of that age, needs a 3+ bedroom house.

I am a true warrior at my sport which is bodybuilding. My goal is to eventually get my pro card and nothing can stop me from trying to achieve this goal. My favorite bodybuilders are Arnold, Jay Cutler, Tom Platz, and Dennis Wolf. I love to work out and chill with my boys, and am single for the ladies. Anybody that wants to be my friend is very welcome, especially the ladies, and jealous haters don't appear on my radar

I would be happy to watch a Hunger Games Tory Party Special, in which all the candidates are taken to a remote island and fight to the death.

Last person standing is the new leader of the Conservatives.

Genuine question - what does that phrase mean, in simple terms? I didn't see the other thread, feel free to link your previous explanation.


I think Guthers summed it up very well earlier

Vote Rory Stewart.... by Guthrum 12 Jun 9:44
Historically, a lot of them had a genuine desire for social and economic improvement. People like Alec Douglas-Home and Harold Macmillan had been junior MPs suring the Great Depression, had seen the poverty among their constituents and felt a very great urgency to never go back there.

The modern welfare state was planned and designed on Churchill's watch in the early 1940s. No Conservative government in the '50s, '60s or '70s tried to dismantle it. They didn't deregulate or denationalise. Consensus was the order of the day.

That film really gets my goat. How can you just rip-off a brilliant film like Battle Royale and call it a really rubbish name like that? The Simpsons had it right...

He claims to be. And once upon a time he may well have been. But he is only interested in power for power's sake and I don't think he stands for or believes in anything anymore.

Loathsome Leadsome would be well down the list for me. She’s been truly appalling around Brexit, both deceitful and dumb (I know they’re not unique characteristics).

Stewart is probably closest to the type of Conservative I like - moderate, consensus, educated (as in actual knowlege, experience and understanding of the world), not pandering to self-centered libertarians.

However, his UK political experience at senior level is more limited than many of the others and his competence has not been tested that much (on the other hand, neither is he a proven incomptent yet, like some).

Hancock seems vaguely ok, some of what Leadsom is saying is possibly not so bad. Johnson, Raab and Javid just come across as distasteful, not least because of their approach to tax bribery.

Good Lord! Whatever is it?

I started but it's a tall order, GB! You start saying 'anyone but' but then you end up mentioning all of them... Hmm.

Ken Clarke should just be forced to do it.

She's simply a very low calibre politician. Sadly the last three years have revealed that the overwhelming majority of M.P.'s in all parties are of little merit.
The only two in that list that would give me any hope are Raab and Boris. Despite his astonishing gaffe about Dover I like Raab and think him one of the best in parliament. I wouldn't put anything past Boris, he could win an election on a pro-BREXIT ticket then back Remain; but he's probably going to be the next P.M. barring an even bigger stitch-up than the one that gave us feeble Mrs May.
