Reader’s Comment: Gove and Leadsom put May in power


In response to Kathy Gyngell: A career unexamined – media hand May a free pass to No 10, Bo Williams wrote:

It wasn’t the media that handed Theresa May a free pass to 10 Downing Street. It was the Brexiteers. More specifically Michael Gove and Andrea Leadsom. Once the two of them decided to stab Boris Johnson in the back the bloodletting was so great the Brexiteers ended up with Andrea Leadsom as their standard-bearer rather than Boris Johnson. Andrea Leadsom is simply not capable of being British Prime Minister thus Theresa May wins by default. If Gove had stuck by Boris and Leadsom hadn’t come up with the ludicrous idea of being Boris’s Chancellor, Boris could have comfortably picked up 140 votes and thus made a fair fight of it.
