QuoteMeanwhile, a former minister told the BBC: "Johnson is toast... if you were the chief whip looking at him you'd say he's not fit to do any other jobs in government, you wouldn't make him a junior minister, he doesn't work hard enough."

Quote from: greencalx on January 15, 2022, 08:39:20 AMMaybe... I don't claim to have any insight into the mind of a Tory. Truss, who has no discernible talent that I can see, is apparently second in the running. Sunak seems to be the favourite and he scares me, having built up a reputation as a cuddly chancellor despite having a very hardcore no-tax, no-regulation ideology. I imagine he could be quite the charmer whilst being totally ruthless. I am not at all enthusiastic about a leadership election, given the bottomless barrel of awfulness that constitutes the parliamentary Tory party.

Quote from: olliebean on January 15, 2022, 10:48:07 AMBasically it's going to be Sunak or Truss depending on how racist the Tory membership are, rather than on any qualities they might have that make one or other of them more suitable for the job.
Quote from: pigamus on January 15, 2022, 10:56:35 AMI get what they see in Sunak, but Pork Markets? Cheese Disgrace? What is there to see in her except a joke?

Quote from: TrenterPercenter on January 15, 2022, 11:52:05 AMThis. It not impossible mind that Sunak could become leader and there will be some people in the party that will see having the first non-white PM as evidence of their progressiveness. The Tories main concern is keeping the establishment hierarchy in order and controlling the economy as such so that it remains a rich persons country (this isn't quite as simply barbaric in there reasoning as people make out, rather they tell themselves this is the way it must be to maintain order and "safety" for international funds, which is key to British interests in the global economy - i.e. they are doing it for your own good serf!). There are therefore a lot of senior players that couldn't give a fuck about the colour of someones skins as long as they are "one of them".The problem is that for votes they rely on old crinkly "they let anyone in nowadays" OAPS, middle-class white flight votes in the shires, and nationalist sentiments in the conurbations all of which verge on actual rightwing nationalism egged on by Tories when convenient. Selling Rishi to these arseholes will be seen by many of them as a betrayal (though this problem of their own making will have to be face at some point).
