THE results of our first poll are in, and this is how you cast your votes. It’s still a win for BoJo.
Who would you give your vote to?

But, reflecting the national polls, his lead is slipping already. Our readers also much prefer the prospect of Dominic Raab to the MSM’s favourite, the former Vote Leave advocate, Michael Gove, whose measly 6 per cent in our poll reveals his lack of credibility with the public since he continued in the Cabinet, though not, I suspect, with the Establishment.
Too many of you to count said – predictably, we admit – ‘none of the above’, commenting you wouldn’t vote for any of them. The irony is that you’d far rather cast your vote for one of the true Brexiteers who haven’t – at least as yet – volunteered their names, as Bruce Mills wrote:
None of these have said they’d said they’d want the job but Owen Paterson, John Redwood, IDS, David Davis are top chaps. Instinctively I trust them. At the moment can’t think of any female other than Leadsom who appeals if only for the frosty disdain she displays towards Bercow when engaged in their games.
Edit: Forgot Priti Patel: top woman! Thanks to JewishKuffar’s comment for the reminder.
If those listed above don’t get the job – and they won’t – surely they must be given the top cabinet posts.
Not too long ago I thought JRM – a top orator, sensible and measured – but, along with Boris the pair blew it at a stroke with their vote for MV3 and May’s WA. Gove, of course, is the proven turncoat and back-stabber. A pity. Who can be trusted in parliament today?
Not many, is the answer.
We’ll be running our next poll soon. This time it will be on who you think would be the best of those former Remainers – Hunt, Stewart, Hancock – who have thrown their hats in the ring.
