Who will be kicked out of the race to be PM today? Tory leadership outsiders post one last selfie as they scrabble to save face by pleading for support from MPs - as Boris Johnson looks poised to storm first round of contest Half the 10 candidates could be wiped out at a single stroke in the first round of the contest - as they need at least 17 backers to continue. Frontrunner Boris Johnson is pictured today.

When Boris Johnson gave his friend David Cameron just ten minutes’ notice that he was backing Leave in the EU Referendum — a devastating blow to the then Prime Minister and the Remain campaign — a serious rift opened up.

They’d long been school, university and political rivals, but enjoyed a good relationship.

For Cameron, it was a bitter betrayal. However, he said later: ‘We are still friends — just not such good friends.’

In a twist, I now hear that Cameron is quietly advising Boris on his Tory leadership campaign.

After he romped home first in last week’s ballot, Boris headed to the Carlton Club in St James, the spiritual home of the Conservative Party, where was spotted locked in conversation with the former PM.

I hear that Cameron had initially privately supported Health Secretary Matt Hancock who, at just 40, had positioned himself as the next-generation candidate. He withdrew from the contest on Friday after securing just 20 votes.

But it seems Cameron has always assumed that Boris would win — gaffes or revelations permitting — and clearly wants to give his two cents.

One Cameron confidant told me: ‘David is delighted to be asked to give advice and he buried the hatchet with Boris long ago.’

There is another theory. Could Boris be trying to persuade Cameron to take a seat in the House of Lords and serve in his Cabinet?

He immediately set out his stall on Brexit, insisting the UK must leave the EU by Halloween. Asked whether he could guarantee the country will be out by the deadline, he said: 'We must come out in the 31st October because otherwise I am afraid we face a catastrophic loss of confidence in politics. 'We have already kicked the can down the road twice and I think the British people are getting thoroughly fed up.

Make your mind up, Rory!

Is Tory leadership hopeful Rory Stewart at risk of sabotaging himself with mixed messages?

He told Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage on LBC yesterday that ‘we need to find a way, as a party, of reaching out to you and bring you in to try to work out how we get this [Brexit] through Parliament’.

Yet earlier, on the Andrew Marr Show, Stewart — a Remainer who says the Tories must deliver Brexit — said he’d flatly refuse to serve in a Boris Johnson Cabinet.

Or would he? On Friday he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that he would be ‘honoured to serve’ the former Mayor of London. Within minutes, he was on Good Morning Britain saying he wouldn’t...

Rory Stewart Eliminated From Tory Leadership Contest

Rory Stewart Eliminated From Tory Leadership Contest Rory Stewart’s insurgent campaign for the Tory leadership has come to an end after he was eliminated in the third round of the contest. The underdog candidate who has captured the imagination of many with his unorthodox campaign was leapfrogged by Sajid Javid and found himself in last place after the third round of MPs’ votes. Boris Johnson was again way out in front and looks certain to be one of the two candidates who will face a vote by 160,000 Tory members to choose the next prime minister.

Brexit stalwart and former London mayor Boris Johnson says enter a bid to become the United Kingdom's next prime minister or the conservative party's leader.

Speaking on Nick Ferrari’s LBC radio show this week, Lord Young, who was Margaret Thatcher’s Trade Secretary, said: ‘I think Margaret Thatcher would probably opt for Dominic Raab. He has the sort of policies and the look that would appeal to her.’

The Iron Lady certainly wasn’t immune to a clean cut, manly visage!

Tipped by some as a future Labour leader, Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner has attempted to exploit the ‘collapse’ of Change UK.

To which the former Labour MP and now Independent for Dudley North Ian Austin replied: ‘Tragically, Angela, you could get the number of members of the Shadow Cabinet with the decency and guts to speak out about racism in the Labour Party in that phone box, too.’ Quite right, Ian.

Jezza’s very short-term memory

Jeremy Corbyn posted a tweet at the weekend saying: ‘We should strive to create a society that allows every LGBT+ person the right to be open about who they are without fear.’

Well said, Jeremy. Unfortunately, this is the same Labour leader who took £20,000 for appearances on Press TV, the mouthpiece of the Iranian government — an abhorrent regime which publicly executes gay men.

Yet another example of ‘do as I say, not as I do’ from this hypocrite.

Boris Johnson Categorically Rules Out Delaying Brexit Beyond October 31.
Boris Johnson has categorically ruled out extending Article 50 and delaying Brexit should he become prime minister. In an interview with TalkRadio on Tuesday morning, the frontrunner in the Conservative Party leadership contest said he would take the UK out of the EU on October 31 “come what may” and “do or die”. Johnson had appeared to avoid a firm commitment to that date in recent comments - including during the first hustings with Tory members on Sunday.
