ANDREA LEADSOM’S RESIGNATION from Theresa May’s government narrows the playing field for those in the running to be the UK’s next Prime Minister. 

The latest departure from May’s cabinet has left the Prime Minister – who is expected to set out a date for her departure tomorrow – floundering after a last-ditch attempt to rally MPs behind her Brexit plan was roundly rejected by both her own party and the Labour opposition. 

Leadsom was the runner-up in the Conservative leadership contest when May became leader in 2016 and until yesterday served as Leader of the House of Commons.

With May’s resignation on the horizon, the Times newspaper in the UK has put Tory MP Boris Johnson as the front-runner to succeed May with former Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab in second. 

So, today we’re asking: Who do you think will replace Theresa May as Prime Minister? 


Poll Results:

Boris Johnson (5619)
Other  (1621)
Michael Gove (1110)
Jeremy Hunt (934)
Dominic Raab (830)
Sajid Javid  (500)
Penny Mordaunt  (257)
