    Cameron resignation presents new opportunity

    What we need is a beneficent property owner who has been very successful and consequently is very rich

    £250000 would be a mere drop in the ocean

    Now I wonder who that LL could be!?

    But I agree the C24 process is doomed

    Just not enough LL know or care or are prepared to pledge

    Many will he bankrupted because of their refusal to engage with the process.

    I'm afraid the law is for rich people

    We've just lucked out cos we are poor!

    Justice!!!!!???

    Not in the UK there isn't

    I read - that to avoid the "Jeremy Corbyn" issue of a £3 mutanty of the party.
    Specificaly to stop a Boris Johnson bandwaggon.

    That no new members can vote on the next leader; see here.

    Its a proposal in the article, so maybe if you sign up fast! But the 1922 Comittee has met, so then again..

    Boris Johnson has just announced that he has ruled himself out of the Conservative leadership content.

    Michael Gove and Teresa May have put themselves forwards.

    It's good Borris saw sense and stepped down. He is not cut out to lead this country especially at a time when the country needs firm descions to be made. Just the thought of him trying to negotiate deals with the EU is a funny sight.

    Theresa May has my vote! She is the only one that seems as though she has her head screwed on, and who knoes, maybe it's time for another female PM!

    Boris will clearly stand and win at the next election...

    I think we need someone who wholeheartedly supported Leave so the rest of the EU know they can't just make minor concessions and get an agreement as they did with Cameron. So Gove or Ledsom.

    Interesting article that looks at potential housing policies of Tory leadership contenders:

    Theresa May

    The favourite for the leadership is much less of a known quantity on housing and there are mixed messages as to where she stands on new homes.

    Recent posts in the housing and development category on her website welcome new market and affordable homes in her Maidenhead constituency. Go further back, though, and the posts are all about supporting local objectors to new homes and protecting the Green Belt. And look at the web address and the whole housing category is titled ‘over-development’.

    In her leadership pitch she made big play of social mobility:

    ‘Because Britain still needs a Government that is capable of delivering a programme of serious social reform and realising a vision of a country that truly works for everyone.’

    Alongside disadvantages that flow from wealth or class or gender or race:

    ‘If you’re young, you’ll find it harder than ever before to own your own home. These are all burning injustices, and – as I did with the misuse of stop and search and deaths in police custody and modern slavery – I am determined to fight against them.’

    Note that the ‘burning injustice’ in housing is not being able to own your own home rather than not having one at all. She goes on:

    ‘But the mission to make this a country that works for everyone goes further than fighting these injustices. If you’re from an ordinary, working-class family, life is just much harder than many people in politics realise. You have a job, but you don’t always have job security. You have your own home, but you worry about mortgage rates going up. You can just about manage, but you worry about the cost of living and the quality of the local school, because there’s no other choice for you.’

    Life may be harder than most politicians realise but May seems unaware of the millions of people struggling to pay their rent as well as their mortgage.

    Andrea Leadsom

    She is the most unknown quantity in the race because she’s never been a Cabinet minister. Leadsom has attracted support from UKIP after pledging to invoke Article 50 (the mechanism to leave the EU) as soon as she becomes prime minister but only three years ago she said Brexit would be ‘a disaster’.

    The former banker attracted controversy when she was appointed economic secretary to the Treasury over the tax affairs of the buy-to-let company she founded with her husband. Her responsibilities in this job, from April 2014 to May 2015, included Help to Buy. Following the 2015 general election she became a junior energy and climate change minister.

    The planning section of her website includes many examples of her acting against ‘excessive development’ in her South Northamptonshire constituency.

    However, at the launch of her leadership bid on Monday, she signaled that housing would be a bigger priority if she wins:

    ‘I will appoint a key minister for housing and try my hardest to keep him or her in the job for the rest of the parliament. I want a minister who thinks of nothing other than how to use a bigger housing budget to deliver on the aspirations of the working people of this country.’

    It is now certain that we will have a female Prime Minister again occupying No.10 Downing Street, the last and only one previoulsy to do so was Margaret Thatcher.  She became leader of the conservative party in opposition in 1975, going on to become Prime Minister by winning the General election in 1979.

    Teresa May won the majority of the votes with Andrea Leadsome second.  The ballot takes place on 9th September.
