I'm very impressed by Andrea Leadsom.
She seems to really grasp the problems the country faces and would I think be best able to steer the country through some uncertain times.

All the others are damaged in some way.
I think she would be the best hope to heal the division in her party and reunite the country.

Andrea for PM?

High office yes, I don't think she necessarily has what it takes to be pm quite yet.

Bear in mind that the tories have a very slim majority hence someone that can unite the party is the first consideration.

I rather suspect the old and bold will come to the fore if they throw their hats into the ring. Leadstrom's time will come but she would have to prove herself as a minister first.

Keeping my fingers crossed for Leadsom. Bear in mind that she is more senior in government than Cameron was when he was elected leader of the Tory party. She's bold and outspoken, has financial services experience, has done a lot of work on life in and out of the EU through Project Fresh Start. Plenty of grassroot support and will win next GE for the Tories. Perfect for the role.

UKIP candidate in Tory clothing, backed by Arron Banks.

Right now I find it hard to rule anything out, but I doubt she has a high enough profile.

Yes I'm overjoyed to have a choice of 5 vile Tories as our next PM so they can fuck the country over some more, thank you Dominic.

I think she is the best candidate and I hope she wins.

I was very impressed with her on one of the debates I watched last month. She seemed strong but compassionate without being a hard hearted bitch like so many other females seem to be when they get a sniff at power Theresa May

I am struggling to understand why this woman is being considered for leadership when she actually belongs in front of a public inquiry explaining why she crashed our economy and removed probably our most important USP as a trading nation - predictability and trustworthiness.
