He's not actually resigned yet, that usually involves saying 'I resign' and ******* off. He's just blathered enough to chase the wolves from the door for a while, probably in the hope that by the time everyone gets their shit together he can weasel into staying on for just a bit longer.

I thought the anti-catholic rules applied to the monarchy, not the Prime Minister, but either way it's a stupid rule from a bygone age.

You may test that assumption at your convinience.

Someone should tell him that including religion as a reason to deny someone access to participating in democracy is why the united kingdom is collapsing.

The Tory leadership contest seems to consist of the contenders trying to be more anti-Europe, transphobic and economically right-wing than each other.

Also, we’re having a major heatwave tomorrow where temperatures are forecast to reach an unprecedented 40 degrees in parts of Britain, and Tory politicians are queuing up to say “it’s called summer, shut up and enjoy the sunny weather, you weakling snowflakes”.

That's hot even for the American South. If the Tories are so unconcerned, let them spend 8 hours outside in those temps. See if they change their tunes then(assuming they survive it, that is. Heat stroke is no joke)

I'd bet money I don't have that not a single Tory lawmaker leaves their central heating and cooling during the heatwave.

I'm not entirely sure why they were televising debates in the first place. It's not like the general public is going to get any say in who gets the job. Did they do this when May resigned?

They wanted to do it because "politician" and "narcissist" are interchangeable these days.

The general public has no say in what's being debated in Congress, but C-SPAN exists anyway.

Yeah. Was a bit weird. I guess it’s reinforcing the idea that the Tory party = British state in some way. Apparently less than 200,000 people are Tory party members, which is a small proportion of a country with seventy million people in it…
