The other thing I don't get is Gove's case for scrapping VAT and bringing in another tax....???
Why not just reduce VAT and maybe increase the range of products not subject to VAT instead of bringing in a new scheme that would cost millions to implement?

Thoughts from the debate - Boris came across better than I expected, I think his team have done a good job coaching - was funny though when he obviously forgot Abdullah's name and was scrabbling around wondering how to address him.
Rory although probably being the most honest came across as quite naive I just don't think he has the leadership credentials as yet. Gove kept trying to bring Corbyn into everything to deflect the issues, Sajid did and said nothing special but I don't see him being a heavy enough hitter to progress much further. Hunt did OK and still looks and talks  the most statesmanlike.
I wish all of them would have dropped the points scoring personal drop-ins  - I was a muslim, my family grew up in poverty, my parents ran a small business, I have Irish Heritage, I was an Orphan bollocks and even Rory greeting Abdullah in Arabic......really cringeworthy stuff.......

Who will Boris face in the final ballot?

That's up to Boris' camp. All they have to do is lend 15 or 20 votes from their own supporters - and I hear they are easily well enough organised to do this - to the other candidate they want him to face in the last two. If they don't want Jeremy Hunt in the last two, no problem.

If I was one of Dominic's supporters though, I think I'd vote for Savid tomorrow and hope Creepy Rory goes out in the next round.

Good. He looks like a baby, that or the Hood from Thunderbirds...

I was actually thinking that yesterday!

What a load of horse***t that was! I despair if we have to find a PM from that shower. Gove probably had the best night., Boris was....Boris, unconvincing with his "it'll be alright, trust me" shtick. Descended into a bit of a mess at times when Maitlis (purrrr) didn't have the authority to control it. Questions were predictable......as were most of the answers.
'Just call me Saj' laboured his working class, immigrant credentials. Rory was desperate to tell everyone he was in the army. I don't think I heard Boris mention his tenure as London's mayor once, surprising. Just as surprising was the fact that he was only one generation away from sitting on his grandfather's knee being read the Koran!
I think I want Boris to win now.....just because it will piss off Juncker, Barnier, Verhofstadt et al

It's thoroughly depressing that the big highlight from this debate, and for me shows just how awful the caliber of contenders are in this leadership bid, is that Boris didn't make a tit of himself.

Quote from: Slim on June 18, 2019, 20:38:56 pmUnsurprisingly Rory doesn't like tax cuts, why he even joined the Conservative Party I have no clue.
Because they're the natural party of Government?

QuoteSajid not getting much of a look in here.

Rory out to 14/1 after that.  

Boris steadfast at 1/6.

Don't think either clipped any fences or blazed a trail but the betting now seems be reflecting more who is most likely to be backed by the voting members rather than who is considered to have wider appeal.

Still looks a formality, but let's see where we are come Friday.

Incidentally, I thought Gove's broadsides at Corbyn were quite entertaining.  Get him on HIGNFY.
