All the contenders in the running to be the UK's next Prime Minister
Basically no one has any idea what’s going on in the UK political landscape anymore, not even those in the UK
As it stands, there are currently five candidates to take on the position of the Prime Minister of the UK, replacing Theresa May
The candidates are Boris Johnson, Jeremy Hunt, Michael Gove, Rory Stewart and Sajid Javid
The Brexit situation is a total nightmare, no one knows what's going on and everyone has turned against Theresa May. Who possibly then is coming to the rescue? It looks like it’s going to be Boris Johnson.
Conservative MPs at the moment, are currently witling down the candidates for who will be at the helm of the party and thus Prime Minister of the country. As it stands, there are five men currently battling and debating for the position, here are those five:
The frontrunner, the enigma, the only man on earth with hair worse than Trump’s is Boris Johnson. The 21st century is gearing up to have two of the worst hairdos in two of the most powerful positions on earth. Johnson has the least experience in terms of years, however his public disagreement with May throughout her Brexit battle has made him a clear favourite. He has a whopping 126 votes in the second ballet and 54.8% of his party could see him as PM.
The most experienced of the bunch in terms of years served, the foreign secretary is currently second place in the voting, even though he stands as one of the least popular among his own party. His anti-EU policies could garner him some affection though. 46 votes in second ballot, 5.8% of Conservative Party members think he should be PM.
For the man who led the Vote Leave campaign in the 2016 EU referendum, it seems fitting them that Michael Gove who started it should be the one to finish it all. The Environment Secretary is currently in some hot water however surrounding news of his much publicised narcotics usage as a young man. Still, he stands comfortably in third place with his 41 votes, though only 7.1% of his party think he should be PM despite him being the second most governmentally experienced of all the choices.
Previously a backer of the Vote Remain campaign, it may seem peculiar to see him in the running to lead the UK into a Brexit resolution. The International Development Secretary is liked for his pragmatic approach to appealing to Remain voters also and finally bringing some harmony and unity back to the country. He raked in 37 votes in the second ballot, has 10 years’ experience and is seen as the second most favourable choice with a 16.3% among his party.
Javid is the Home Secretary and like Stewart, pledges to “rebuild trust and find unity”. Again like Stewart, he’s a former Remainer but with apparently “no enthusiasm” and a “heavy heart”. He is a former protégé of George Osborne, which perhaps gets him extra affection in the party. He has 33 votes in the recent ballot and a low 5.5% rating in terms of Conservative MPs seeing him as PM. Despite this he is third most experienced in terms of years.
So it looks like Boris Johnson might just win this battle, and with Trump launching his 2020 campaign, we may really be in the era of awful haircuts.
