This is an entertaining one. We know that whenever the leadership of one of the big two parties is on the line, an amazing array of no-hopers thrust themselves forward (Andrea who?): even a 1-500 shot of becoming PM at a stroke is too much for a mere mortal to resist, still less a venal MP.
But whom do we reckon has a serious chance?
For what it's worth, I'd say Hammond is on maneouvres in a big way. He never seems to feature on shortlists, so maybe the true insiders know of some absolutely fatal feature in his background. That apart, surely he's the safe-hands candidate by a country mile.
What do we think?
