Oh, and concerning the list of Conservative contenders for the Iron Throne (Iron as in Irony!); none of the above.

Seen elsewhere...

Two iron laws emerge from the years of the Brexit nightmare. First, it always seems that things cannot get worse than they are at the moment. Second, they always do.

The election of Boris Johnson as Prime Minister in succession to Theresa May would confirm both these laws.

It would be most entertaining to see Johnson go for no deal, only to crawl to Brussels days later as the UK crashes to beg for mercy. Followed by PM Johnson unconditionally signing the post-no-deal deal = Irish backstop, immigrants' rights and money, but NO transition.  Big Grin

Do you remember Nathalie Loiseau's cat Brexit? 
No. 10 has a cat, is he Brexit?
I say he is the de facto PM, this thread is about the next puppet.

Larry the Cat for PM!

By the way, Larry will be Merkel's fifth British PM (Brown, Blair, Cameron, May, Larry).  Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin 

I think now the Brits have overtaken the Italians at the frequency of changing PMs - a great achievement.

Oh, and Irish Border has chewed up 36 ministers and 2 PMs.  Cool Big Grin Big Grin

Hunt has an article in the Daily Torygraph by all accounts and he has also highlighted the one thing more important than the relationship UK/EU;

From the Gaurdian, my bold

The UK will be forced into a general election that will obliterate the Conservative party if a new leader pushes for the UK to leave the EU with no deal in October, Jeremy Hunt has said.
Having written in a Telegraph article that a no-deal Brexit would be “political suicide”, Hunt said on Tuesday he did not believe parliament would allow the UK to leave with no deal on 31 October and would force an early election.
“I’m making this argument because I want to solve the Brexit crisis we are in and I’m worried if we don’t solve it we will face a political crisis that is far bigger than our legal relationship with the EU; it could lead to the destruction of our party system and the end of my own party,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

Amazing.

Who will be the next PM ?

Not Corbyn I think.  He has already climbed back onto his referendum avoiding fence.

 the Labour leader said the party's conference in September would get the final say on its position, despite calls from senior figures for it to make its views clear now.

Mr Corbyn insisted that the party believed any final Brexit deal should be put to a "public vote" - but did not make clear whether that would be a general election or a referendum.

I think those EU ones are in particularly funny - since Merkel is a member of the European Council, she has regular meetings with all other EU PMs/presidents. The faces at these meetings are all changing - but Merkel is still here.  Cool
