    He is the smariest thing I have seen in some time, if any of the Tory members vote for him and expect anything different from May then they really are stupid.

    How did you think Southgate would have interviewed in 2017 if he had say redknapp, sherwood, mourinho and allardyce in the room shouting over him? I just don't think that format suited him. Leadership that is quiet and thoughtful is often the best kind

    Stewart is the latest w@nk-fodder for the centrist dads, but of course, he's just another Tory with the same voting record as all the others. And he's apparently smart, but his Brexit plan is to present May's deal. Again. That'd work...

    Anyway, he's out now. Time for him to go and eat a cheeseburger.

    For one that works alone maybe. A leader needs to be a far stronger character than him - or Corbyn for that matter.

    John Major was bright but a poor leader. As was Shouldhavebeenhisbrother Miliband.

    Javid the arch opportunist who would step over anyone to get where he wants to be? No thanks would prefer Johnson. Now Stewart is out I couldn’t care less about the others.

    I genuinely think Johnson is the absolute worst for it. No scruples at all, he will fudge our entire nation over to satisfy his own ego. The man is dangerous.

    None of which is intended to support Javid, rather the "would prefer Johnson" statement was a bit much for me!

    £500 or not, Boris is basically a Bond villain as far as I can see.

    If we really are looking at he or Corbyn for the next 5 years then I may have to go pro-Remain, at least within the EU the damage they could do is limited.

    And Id also have to start voting monster raving looney party, its the only sane choice...

    Not sure what 'f.cking a whole nation over' does for your ego.....he'd probably be more concerned about his own safety.

    If it gets him the premiership, he couldnt give a toss the cost.

    Just as he'll make any number of terrible decisions to keep it once he gets there.

    Ive become quite anti-EU. There if far more I dislike about it than like. And have said for a while Id much rather all out (or in) than Soft Brexit/BINO.

    However, if we end up with Boris or Corbyn running things, I would seriously have to consider what is the least-worst option. And right now I thhink Id lean to no Brexit.

    I'm not sure either will still be party leader by the time of the 2022 election.

    Corbyn is 70 now and I think will engineer a succession at least a year before the GE. I think he just wants to make sure the structures are in place to guarantee that the person will be another Bennite (Long-Bailey seems his preference at the moment)

    And Johnson won't last 18 months in the job before a scandal or coup brings him down.

    2022 - Long-Bailey vs Stewart?

    You assume itll take that long for one to come around. Given the impasse in the house RE Brexit, and Boris' not being elected (as with May) I think it more likely an election will be called long before then.

    And if Corbyn and Boris have one thing in common its that they want that job more than anything and will screw anyone over to get there.

    He's an opportunist, through and through, and sniffs the prize at this time.

    Every chance it doesnt come up again for him...

    Nah. He'd always get his chance. Enough conservatives love him.

    Poisoned chalice at the moment

    Im not so sure. He is front runner now in a very weak field, if there was actual competition I doubt that would be the case
