    Sunak got 43% of their vote last time. I would suggest it was Ms Truss's 'I'll do what Maggie would do' shtick that got her over the line. Have you looked at the Conservative front Bench in recent years?

    This time I guess the choice of leader will be by MP's.

    Nope, they just do the shortlist. It goes to the membership for hastily arranged online vote. Very fast organisation... you get the feeling they were working on this in the background long before she resigned.

    And the party membership certainly didn't elect that front bench.

    Since whole world is enjoying UK drama, wonder what the mood is like up north!! Couldn't have been a better time for Dada to run this shit show 24/7 on CCTV, smear democratic systems, reemphasize stability under CCP and cement his place for life with a smug smile..

    On holiday while parliament was/is sitting? Is there not enought time for holidays in the 4 months a year it's not sitting? What about doing something for his constituent's considering he's not had time for them for the last couple of years.
