New UK PM

Eight Conservative MPs have so far said they will stand in the race to replace Theresa May as prime minister. This is where they stand on the crucial leadership issue of Brexit.

Boris Johnson

Johnson has clearly set out his view that the UK must leave the EU by the end of October, effectively challenging other pro-Brexit candidates to make the same promise. He would have another go at renegotiating the Northern Ireland backstop to stop it being indefinite but proceed with a no-deal policy if that is not possible.

Michael Gove

Gove has said the next leader must not only believe in Brexit but have the “wherewithal to deliver it” – in an apparent swipe at Johnson’s organisational skills. The former Vote Leave campaigner is a true Brexiter but has not tied his hands by promising to get the UK out of the EU by October. Instead, he has said he would run as a “unity candidate” – suggesting he would push for a deal first and foremost.

Jeremy Hunt

The foreign secretary, dubbed a “born-again Brexiter” by colleagues, has pitched himself as the candidate with the business skills to carry out a better negotiation than Theresa May. He would keep leaving without a withdrawal agreement on the table as an option, but claims to be the one with “the experience to avoid the Scylla and Charybdis of no deal or no Brexit”.

Dominic Raab

Raab has promised, like Johnson, to take the UK out of the EU on 31 October regardless. He has even hinted he could override the will of MPs to carry out Brexit without a deal, saying it was difficult for parliament to legislate against it. He also stressed that he was a “lawyer” and a “details guy” – which appeared to be an attempt to contrast his own credentials with those of Johnson.

Matt Hancock

Hancock is determined to do a compromise Brexit deal and would not pursue a no deal policy. To do this, he said a new prime minister would have to be clear about the trade-offs “between sovereignty and market access to get a deal through this parliament”. His big pitch to MPs is that he would avoid the need for a general election any time soon until Brexit has been delivered.

Rory Stewart

Stewart is the softest Brexiter running, saying he would want to leave the EU with a deal and then move on to tackle pressing domestic policies. He stresses the importance of the union and would appoint a new secretary of state to defend it, so is not a fan of a second referendum. Stewart has also caused trouble for Johnson by suggesting that the former London mayor is privately not keen on a no-deal Brexit.

Andrea Leadsom

The former leader of the Commons, whose resignation helped May on her way out of No 10, is another Brexit pragmatist, preferring a deal but prepared to go for no deal at the end of October – like both Johnson and Raab. “I think any policy needs to be that [31 October] is the date of our departure,” she said.

Esther McVey

McVey has the hardest Brexit position of the lot, after holding out against Theresa May’s deal throughout the various votes. She would take the UK out of the EU without a deal regardless, saying; “The withdrawal agreement ship has sailed and needs to be put out of its misery.”

Yet to declare

Sajid Javid, Steve Baker, James Cleverly, Graham Brady, Priti Patel, Penny Mordaunt.

We would look even bigger fools than the Americans. Boris is an absolute joke, there is no plausible excuse for him as PM. Are there no other idiots available? I can never forgive his limerick aimed at RTE. Totally unprofessional.

Even Boris does not come close to the buffoon Trumpty, but that aside, Boris is more likely to deliver a no deal Brexit, which many believe will be the best for the country.

Let Boris become PM and hopefully a no deal Brexit will come to fruition and then finally we will see who was right and who was wrong.

Re: New PM

You missed Tony Bliar, oops sorry - Blair.

Quite an interesting spread of views amongst the "candidates". Personally, I voted to leave and that is what I expect to happen. I think there are far too many people about who keep banging on about "deals". We were not told when we voted that there just might be certain provisos added at a later date.

We should have been out one or two months at most after we voted. It must have cost this country a fortune in the period since the vote until now. Never mind going on to 31st October.

So a consecutive PM gets appointed with no mandate from the public

Re: New PM

With respect Maisie , we were told that a deal , the easiest deal ever , would be in place before a withdrawal agreement would be put to Parliament .

That is now seen as the greater lie , reiterated repeatedly by leave .

Well that was before our politicians saw fit by a huge majority to activate Article 50 & then some of those very same MPs spent night and day trying to thwart it.

I wouldn't want any future PM to be a converted remainer, been there done that. Quite rightly JC has yet again called for a GE, the only folly of that is, both mainstream parties could well get a tanking..........truly deserved IMO.

Re: New PM

A deal was promised , deal first then leave , otherwise the liars win , fair enough if it is good enough for you , but acceptance of lies , by people like you is the reason they continually do it , and get away with it .

Deal first , then leave .

People like me? I gave my vote & have stuck by it, MPs gave their votes and then once elected became turncoats to the electorate which includes ME.
By all means blame the people, then look at tonight's EU MEP results, AGAIN democracy has spoken. Are people still saying we didn't know what we voted for?
Yes we can blame the government & these results reflect that but what's Labours excuse, why have they lost seats?
