I'd want Rory Stewart.
I think the Conservative Party would be wiser to look outside the usual main runners box this time.

I think Johnson, Raab or Javid.

Leadsom ran last time and quit.
They'd be mad to vote for her.

If Johnson is one of the last 2 standing then he's virtually got it.

it's really not cursed if the new leader doesn't attempt to get a deal through. Force parliament to vote against the ref result and revoke or go with a no deal .... then people will note who voted for what and hold them responsible as they see fit. That is the get out of jail path for the tories

I think it's extremely unlikely that October will be any less of a mess than March was, and whoever is PM at the time will be branded "as useless as Theresa May".

Liz Truss and Sajid Javid are the only ones I could stomach voting for if it was truly a head to head between Corbyn and them.

But I don't vote either anyway.

I didn't click 'other' but I would totally back Tom Tugendhat or Johnny Mercer

oh, i think it will be very messy, and it will be an edge of the seat moment when they decide to revoke or go with a no deal, but that's how its going to be. Deals are a pipe dream that are unworkable as May has shown
