And so it seems I was right; the treacherous bastards are trying to stitch up the Tory leadership contest to remove Andrea Leadsom, the Brexit candidate, from the ballot to be put to party members. The significance of this is quite obviously an attempt to render Brexit a stillbirth by installing Theresa May as PM and delaying the enactment of Article 50 indefinitely. This would be a round-about way of defying the democratic will of the 17 million people who voted Leave in the referendum.
Gove simply must get out of the race at some point this week and pledge his support to Leadsom. If she can just make it onto the ballet to be put to Tory party members, then there is a chance she will actually make it into Number 10.
