Quote from: Cassandra on July 07, 2022, 10:19:02 PMTory members (included in last round as voters, along with MP's) might make Steve Baker (51) an unexpected success. He's very popular with the activists
Quote from: Diasi on July 07, 2022, 10:48:16 PMHe's very popular with the activistsWhich is why I predict he won't make it to the membership vote.When Cameron resigned, Andrea Leadsom, a staunch Brexiter, was the activists' candidate of choice by a country mile, which is why a Remainer in the Tory Party stirred up the hornets' nest about her saying something involving her knowing more about children than Theresa May, who hadn't had any children, did.This led to Andrea withdrawing & staunch Remainer May being shoe-horned in as PM without any membership vote.Steve Baker was the chairman of the Tory Brexiteer ERG which scuppered May's attempts to keep us in the EU.I predict the membership will have to vote between Wallace & Hunt, both committed Remainers.Hunt is a gaffe-prone moronic May supporter who called his Japanese wife Chinese when on a visit to Beijing when in the Foreign Office & one of the worst Health Ministers of any Government.He's nothing but May in trousers as the New Statesman calls him.
Quote from: Cassandra on July 08, 2022, 04:49:57 PMStill a member of the Conservatives, I will vote for the same reason last time - Brexit. Margaret came from nowhere to oust Heath in 1975 and I have a fancy that Suella could do the same job, but directly as PM now.
Quote from: Diasi on July 08, 2022, 06:53:36 PMAnd I will also vote for whichever candidiate is a Brexiteer.But I'd prefer Steve Baker.
Quote from: Cassandra on July 08, 2022, 10:06:48 PMWouldn't argue with that at all, I don't mind either, Baker's very open and refreshing and also pulls a lot of support from the 1922 committee. I hear they also get on well together too! One as PM, the other as deputy, now that would pin Starmer and his'Dinger' growler back a bit!
