I don't get it, 12 people nominating themselves for a position that is surely short term, and definitely a poisoned chalice as whatever happens, they will anger a LOT of people, probably still not manage to do owt about brexit, and be made to step down like May. If not before Brexit (IF they manage to do anything, which again I doubt) when people get sick of them, or just after so they can take the flack for the recession and such that will surely follow. Hell, even if Brexit turns out to be a good thing (perosnally doubt it) there will still be a recession, short ish term at least..and the next Tory leader will claim they would have done it differently, blah blah blah, they could have avoided it, blah, and everything will be laid at the feet of whoever is chosen here.

Cleverley I doubt was ever in with any chance to be considered as leader.

Looks like the 2 Women
are not getting support
So it will be all Man Race


The 1922 Committee
says they will need at least 5 MP's to carry on
they are making a statement 5PM or 6PM

Priti Patel would have been the female with the best chance, she's well respected by Brexiters, but she didn't put her name in the ring.
