    I've been listening to this unfold on BBC radio over the last few weeks. The presenters and MP's alike are actually giving BJ respect for staying out the limelight for as long as possible, in their minds, BJ himself has realised he's an erse and could cock things at any point, so because of his self awareness apparently he's playing a blinder. They've actually dubbed it Operation Ming Vase as everyone's waiting to see if he can carry it to the end. What an amazing country we live in

    Funny how Ruth Davidson is going Sajid Javid and yet not one of the Scottish Tory mpís is backing him.

    Speaking of Javid ... apparently he wasn't invited to the State banquet for Trumpy. He wasn't told why not and several more junior ministers were there.

    If (as seems likely) he was deliberately kept off the guest list just because he's a Muslim and Trump is a racist ******** then surely that's unprecedentedly shameless, spineless behaviour, even for Tories?

    Bizarre tweet from Jeremy Hunt:

    Woke up this morning and felt a bit like the morning of my wedding. Something big is going to change but don't quite know how it will unfold #HastobeHunt
    Has Boris ****ged his missus?

    Nothing to do with Islamophobia. It's a medical condition Trump has, like bone spurs, which renders him allergic to the sons of bus drivers: cf. Sadiq Khan.

    Shouty Ruthie now claiming the SNP need to win an absolute majority at the next election before they can claim to have a mandate for another referendum. No Ruth, you don't get to dictate the rules.

    Had a quick look and about half the Tory mpís hadnít declared for anyone so there is a chance Hunt or Gove have bigger support than expected.

    It would be encouraging to think Rory Stewart emerges with a genuine chance, but he seems far too reasonable in his outlook (and therefore nowhere near partisan enough in these polarised times) so will likely be an early faller.

    BBC are reporting that the expected support for BJ is huge, much bigger than expected - 3 figures.

    He does seem like a decent enough guy - therein lies the reason that they won't vote him in.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    It looks like he's got the ERG onside. Tory party swings further to the right.

    So Harper, McVey, Leadsom automatically out?

    Johnson has enough to go straight to the final 2 on those numbers. Looks like Hunt v **** in the runoff.

    Wouldn't bet on it. The vote is still open to wheeling and dealing. This is the tories after all.

    To get through the next round Stewart will need to pick up most of Harper and Leadsoms votes. McVeys votes will go to Johnson I would think.

    Johnson is in the final two on those votes and therefore our next PM. Let's hope he's the straw that breaks the Tories' back.

    McVey, Leadsom & Harper all took quite a hard line on Brexit though - so you would have to think the likelihood is a lot of them will fall behind Boris now?

    Its going to be between Hunt & BJ.

    These voting record things are usually a total waste of time. Most of these are whipped votes where the MP has to vote with the party or face disciplinary measures, ultimately being booted out.

    Where an MP has departed from the party whip is much more interesting.

    Anyway, Boris doesn't fit labels like left/right/centrist. His central mission is being a self serving ****.

    As soon as someone comes along you think might have a bit of humanity about them something like this reminds us they're all just self serving, evil Tory *******s.
