The terrible 10 – candidates for Tory leadership
Ten potential candidates (so far) for the Tory leadership race:
The Foreign Secretary’s policies when health secretary led junior doctors to go on strike in 2016 for the first time.
The newly appointed first female defence secretary has consistently voted in favour of military involvement overseas.
The Home Secretary came under fire earlier this year after questioning whether refugees crossing the Channel were “genuine.”
UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s resignation announcement as leader of the Conservative Party, effective June 7, will unleash a vicious campaign to replace her. Whoever wins in July—current favourite Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Jeremy Hunt, Dominic Raab or someone now seen as less likely—will steer the government still further to the right: here.
The leadership contest provoked by the imminent resignation of Theresa May threatens the implosion of the Conservative Party.. On Sunday, Samuel Gyimah threw his hat into the ring as the 13th candidate. But aside from the number of challengers, which could yet rise, the central division between them all is how to respond to the crisis wracking British imperialism over exiting the European Union (EU): here.
BORIS Johnson came under fire yesterday for boycotting last night’s Channel 4 debate between the candidates for the Tory party leadership and the position of unelected prime minister: here.
The Tory crisis has reached the stage where Tory ministers have been threatening to ‘bring down’ a Boris Johnson-led government: here.
