I voted none of them - they are all useless :043:

I don’t think any of them would be able to win a GE.

Whether they could or couldn’t win a GE, they have a couple of years still to make their mark. IMHO, if KS remains as Labour leader then they stand a damned good chance of winning the next one if they can win over the Red and Blue Wall voters.

If they choose somebody even more incompetent like Truss, then I reckon we may well see an early GE :upside_down_face:

Kier Starmer is just as unelectable tho :lol:

Hi Omah! I hope you’re all behaving… unlikely knowing you lot :044:

I don’t want any of them either :roll_eyes: I’d like a nice honest person who wants to help people, and none of these are that person, imo :frowning_face:

Owen Jones on making that choice :anguished:

Being asked to choose the least worst Tory to run the country is like being confronted with a smorgasbord of bacterial infections and weighing up the different symptoms and frankly risk of fatality. Am I seeking a candidate whose policies are less harmful, or one who repels voters most and thus secures Tory defeat?

Does it not seem that this dismal group of opportunists are living in fake post-Boris world of their own? They are all promising tax cuts when the state of the nations says that is the last thing they should be doing. They are all aiming to maximise the benefits of Brexit when finding ways to limit the damage from Brexit seems much more pressing. It is worrying that they see these non-policies as things that the other tory MPs and the voting tory party membership will find attractive. That implies there are many in these two groups who care nothing about the future of the UK.
Although these candidates might have learnt well at the elbow of their old leader - make any old promise, do it glibly and brazenly and don’t worry about keeping to it. Just get votes.

Rishi is promising to cut taxes when he set them…he is promising to cut inflation when he caused it…what part of this even makes sense at all? :017:
