Hunt the cunt supports Trump the cunt in interfering in UK sovereignty.

Jeremy Hunt says he agrees '150%' with Donald Trump's criticism of Sadiq Khan

Tory leadership contender Jeremy Hunt has said he agrees "150%" with Donald Trump's criticism of Sadiq Khan on knife crime.
The US president and the London mayor have been engaged in a long-running feud over the issue.
And the war of words continued at the weekend, with Mr Trump sharing a post from political commentator Katie Hopkins.
Her original post referred to the capital as "Stab-City" and "Khan's Londonistan" alongside two screenshots of BBC News articles about the violence.
Quoting this post, Mr Trump wrote: "LONDON needs a new mayor ASAP. Khan is a disaster - will only get worse!"


It is none of Trump the moron's business.

Unfit for office appears to be the theme of this contest.

I wonder if Hunt is tied-in with any of Trump's 'deals'? Perhaps he thinks that after Brexit the UK will be 'up for sale'?

After his debate performance, Stewart has come charging in to second favourite with the bookies.

That said, it's probably not so much a reflection that he could take on Johnson than that the other candidates who turned up all came across as damaged goods and with even less to offer. I wouldn't be terribly surprised if he's out of the running after the next vote either.

The tactics of the Oxford Union if true. No way to choose a prime minister. Juvenile and pathetic. And would bring Tory Party into disrepute

Boris could get >150 votes today and word is he’s lending at least 15 MPs to Jeremy Hunt who he regards as a safe, low-energy opponent.

And Stewart has jumped passed Javid, now looking like a possible contender for second place and the conservative membership vote. I mean he's still a Tory bastard, but unlike the others he does seem to have the ability to listen to other people and engage in discussions based on facts rather than just spouting blind nonsense. Keeping it interesting in a "maybe I don't need to drill my brain out just yet" kind of way.

So committed to Brexit are members of the Conservative and Unionist Party that they would be willing to see Scotland (63%) and Northern Ireland (59%) leave the UK in order to secure it.

Brexit at any cost for some. If it means the breakup of the Union, so be it.

Watched the leadership debate, lots of weasel words and empty promises. I imagine Theresa May sat down with large glass of wine and laughed for the first time in ages since whoever wins inherits all the same intractable problems without any solutions.

All candidates have explicitly ruled out holding a general election. Theresa did that too.

Where on Earth does this idea that Stewart is against Brexit come from?

He just wants to rule out no-deal. Otherwise, he's practically the number one fan of May's deal.

This made news here too. I am not sure I understand what it tells about the participants.

It says that Tories want out of the EU more than they want "The Union" to be preserved. Tricky for the Conservative and Unionist Party, you'd have thought.

And tricky for Ruth Davidson ...

Obviously, but what does it say about them as people. Significant damage to the economy, the party being destroyed but Jeremy Corbyn is apparently huge.
