Ive never heard of Andrea, if people vote for her  instead of Mays solid and consistent cv/performance it will just a matter of I dont like the old cow May cos she just wants to snoop on everyone

Had to laugh earlier, was reading somee newspaper cmment, "we have a fox, two cows, a crabb and a slug" to chose from

Definitely appropriate Mercury, especially for the slimy two faced Gove.

He actually believes no one can do a better job than him. %5&% %5&%

As it's not down to the general public who is the next leader of the Tories this poll is kind of meaningless.

Especially as one Boris Johnson topped it recently.

I note that Theresa May is now the favourite to win the Tory leadership election.

This is an election within the Tory Party by people who predominantly supported the remain camp.  They are not representative of the UK at large thus the Telegraph article.  Little wonder therefore that Theresa May is favourite.

It serves to show nicely just how out of touch the grassroots Tories are with the entire nation.  Tory party members would do well to remember this if they are ever to win the next election which by the way won't happen until 2020 according to May.  Isn't that a sweet reflection of a democracy, an entire nation led by an unelected PM for four years?

The entire nation  ?

In the last election the Cons won a Commons majority with less than 25% of the potential electorate

Not so, they are elected, but not directly by the people.
All MPs are elected to Parliament. The PM is elected to that post by party members.

I don't think they will get away with it, I foresee troublesome times ahead if Theresa May or even Michael Gove think they can be shoehorned into the most important political position in the UK without an actual mandate from the people.  I fear four years of this is unsustainable.

Gove deserves NO trust
May is disliked but not untrusted
She was remain so will get the better deal

The PLP are so utterly terrified of what Corbyn will say about Blair next week that, like the US in Vietnam, they are prepared to destroy the Labour Party in order to 'save' it. The EU referendum result is just a cover for a cynical coup orchestrated by a Blair-friendly PR company - some of the MPs voting no confidence in Corbyn may not even realise that they are being played by Alistair Campbell.

Just heard her comments on the audio recording.

She can hardly say it was taken out of context.

My brain has just caught up with thread title......by default? like:

Anthony Eden,Harold McMillan,Alec Douglas-Hulme, James Callaghan,John Major, Gordon Brown +1 become PM through means other than a general election. Just in my lifetime so far...

It would appear to be a not uncommon occurrence so why the beef at the "plus one"  one wonders ?

Seems the people don't want an unelected PM for the next 4 years!
