Hunt will destroy the Party. If Hunt is elected we will immediately lose many members and voters. No one really believes he will deliver Brexit.
He has not departed from the May script, but just says that he is the man to deliver it!
The Party has to be led by someone who voted Leave or we are finished.

It already has gone through parliament!

They can only stop it by revoking Article 50 or a vote of no confidence. Neither are quite as likely as you think. I think if the EU co-operate on tariffs (we will probably give them the money!), it will happen.

Extension is unlikely as neither party want it.

To deliver brexit? No. Sadly we would lose a lot of voters if he became PM.

At least two radio interviews today. BBC yesterday. 16 hustings, ITV debate Sun. Hardly hiding. He is also contacting members who are the actual voters.

He might find that Michael Fallon is the Foreign Secretary next month and he is out in the cold.

I agree. To call Boris a coward when he sat in the cabinet and didn't stand up to May on Chequers or the WA. Why would we believe that he has the bottle to stand up to the EU.

Hunt will only be 57 in five years time when we could have another election. Davis was 57 then and Cameron was leader for 11 years. He didn’t help himself by resigning and standing again in a by-election though!
If Hunt wins then we are lost as a party. He will be painted as a continuity May leader and the Brexit Party will go from strength to strength.
With Boris, whatever your qualms may be, we have s chance of winning voters back as long as he doesn’t backslide on Brexit.
We cannot elect someone who voted remain as leader.

Hunt is only 52! He has zero chance because of Brexit but, I suspect Boris will not have a long premiership so Hunt will have another chance. It depends on how he performs over the next few years.
Gove clearly has no chance.
It’s strange though as Leadsom had a real chance with the membership in 2016 but no chance in 2019. Her time had gone.
I don’t think Stewart has any hope. His performance was quite bizarre and wasn’t able to articulate a clear conservative message that resonated with any significant group in the party. His time came and went over about 3 days!

Raab would have gone out anyway as he didn’t get enough votes. Didn’t attract MPs outside of the strong leavers which is disappointing.

I suspect the next leader election will be between Hunt and Raab, with no Brexit split to worry about.
