    Must be pretty confident they'll win it, I guess.

    Or, given comments like this -



    and this



    they could be aiming to lose it on purpose to install a new PM sooner and stitch the party membership up by denying them a vote [a la May]

    If they lose the confidence vote they iirc have a fortnight to 'regain the confidence' of the house [i.e. win another confidence vote] else a GE is triggered.

    From that article: "The government will always allow time for appropriate house matters while ensuring that it delivers parliamentary business to help improve people's everyday lives." a government spokesman. So there's another lie....

    Imagine trying to explain to someone who just woke up from a 10 year coma why the government is putting forward a no-confidence vote against itself right after it blocked a no-confidence vote against itself after the party refused to change the rules to dispose of a disgraced PM who resigned regardless shortly after said refusal to change the rules to allow throwing him out...

    Eeeh, he was very careful not to resign as Prime Minister; he merely promised to step down as leader of the Conservative Party once a suitable replacement was found (underneath the bottom of the barrel, one assumes.)

    Only a question of time until wannabe PMs set themselves literally on fire rather than just promising to burn bridges and institutions:lol:

    Amazing when Richi Sunak is the actual best option, solely because he can string two sentences together and his scandals are (tax evasion, hidden wealth) are positively tame by the current standards.

    I think he'll get it, going full Tory they'll give him the poison chalice of trying to clean up Boris' mess and salvaging something from Brexit. Then when the next election comes around in 2 years time he'll be booted for some new ultra right wing Brexiteer who can campaign on the platform of saving Brexit. It worked last time right?

    The way it's looking - that only happens if Mordaunt hooves up all the anti-sunak votes so it's her and Sunak in the final 2... only for her to self-immoalte and withdraw before it goes to the members.

    Like what happened with Leadsom and May.


    Mordant's relatively popularity seems to stem solely from no-one having any idea who she is.

    Rough guess based on where the votes of those at the bottom will probably go:

    *unt and Zahawi votes I can see going Sunaks way
    Braverman votes will probably end up split between Mordaunt and Badenoch
    Tugendhat votes will probably end up split between Sunak and Mordaunt

    Looks a bit like Sunak vs Mordaunt, with Sunak more popular with MPs and Mordaunt more popular with the members (and thus becoming PM).

    I suppose the question is whether the MPs will be of a mind to attempt to disenfranchise their own members in order to prevent Mordaunt getting to the final two.

    It's like bobbing for apples except it's boobing for a turd in sewage.

    I think some Tories would see it as an advantage the next PM being unknown - every other one has known dodgy baggage.
