    Yes. If those 114 stick with him he's going to be in the final two. Members will vote for him.
    Boris Johnson is heading for Number 10!!

      Rory got 19 votes so got through which is very encouraging as, according to polls, he is now second favourite amongst the members. Once the public debates start, he will wipe the floor with Boris. Fingers crossed that a huge upset could be on the cards.
      Sanibona!!

      I realise most of that, but Boris has the backing of the Torygraph and other influences, and it will all be spun to make it seem like a Johnson led government would trounce Labour. With the influence Johnson has on his side, grass root Tories will vote him in.

      It will be almost as if endangering British citizens in Iranian jails, referring to black people as "piccaninnies", aggravating scousers by accusing them of "wallowing in grief" over the killing of Ken Bigley, accusing football fans of making the police scapegoats for Hillsborough, talking about muslim women as "letterboxes", never happened. And that ignores the LONG list of minor gaffes - like saying "f*ck business" in response to business leaders concerns over Brexit, flattening 10 year old kids playing rugby, talking about whisky in a Sikh(or was it Buddist?) temple, "hilariously" rugby tackling an opponent during a charity football match, saying women go to university to find a husband and several other embarrassing moments.

      And in an amazing piece of revisionism, he took to twitter recently to take credit for facing down the London riots in 2011 - you know, the time when the city was in the grip of feral rats and he was on the other side of the world on holiday and didn't bother returning to sort it out for over a week. Even reasonable people on his own side accuse him of waiting to see which direction the public point, running to the front of that queue and shouting "follow me"

      The man is unfit for office. He's a total twunt, but he'll get in because powerful people want him running the country.
      Yep this. Utter *******

      When you sit down and think about that vote the most amazing thing is 8 other people elected to represent the public in Parliament looked at Esther McVey and thought "yes, she'd make a good Prime Minister".

      Am I watching Brighton or Barcelona?

      The trouble is that these are not normal times. Thirty years ago, Johnson would have got nowhere the front bench - can you imagine Thatcher picking him for even the lowliest ministerial office? But these are not normal times, Johnson is a seen as a TV personality in the same way that Trump is. They both share similar traits - a massive ego, laziness, an ability to speak before thinking, practised liars - but both have plenty of supporters who'll ignore this.

      Johnson has won, that's for sure, but I'm not sure we're heading for a very stable future.

      I'll stand by what I said last week, a win for Johnson will see Corbyn in Number 10 by Christmas
