    Boris doesn't seem like a popular choice here, friends I have spoken to about his visit have said they purposely avoided the island until he had gone.

    Boris as prime minister, that'll be interesting.

    I think Hunt has come on stronger and answered more questions directly - but I suspect a lot of members will already have voted in favour of Boris - I think it might be closer than first expected.

    I have to admit to not following it in any great detail, from what I have seen though Hunt comes across as a more suitable candidate, but as you say it looks as though Boris is favourite.

    Will either do anything for us in reality?

    Me neither, Boris still comes across as a buffoon (couldn't even appear on national TV with his tie straight or his hair brushed) but "people" tell me it is all an act and he is very clever. Hunt comes across as a... slimy sh!t bag, but a safer pair of hands? I can only say that if a choice between those two is which eye to gouge out, a choice for Corbyn would be to gouge both eyes out... Lib Dems could make gains but they're strictly remain which isn't democratic to the referendum result which in my opinion (though I didn't vote for it) should stand. Green party, perhaps? Politics in the UK really is in a mess, to be honest.

    That's the sort of summarising the BBC website could do with.

    I really do try not to think for too long about the state of politics and the ever increasing knife/violent crime incidents. I'm not sure what's happening to the Britain I'm proud of, I'm probably not allowed to despair at the state of the country or I'll be labelled racist, small minded or brainwashed.

    I try to avoid political discussion as it rarely ends well, so despite having said all that I'm going to back away slowly and bid you goodnight

    Normally my stance on the forum is never discuss politics or religion - not sure what came over me Rich! Maybe we got away with it?

    There are no 'suitable' candidates, the Tories are all a bunch of Hunts. Trouble is, Labour are equally rubbish, with a power mad commie in charge who will never win a general election for them.

    Better the Devil you know? No, not really, we're screwed either way. String the whole lot up and start again I say!
