Tory leadership candidates launch campaigns

And then there were ten: the Tory MPs left in the running to become the next Prime Minister.

Five of them held campaign launches today, although not Boris Johnson, whose team have kept him away from the media so far. Of course that hasn’t stopped his rivals from weighing in with subtle, and not so subtle, jibes at his fitness for office, compared to their own. Conservative MPs have their first vote this Thursday and will continue to vote next week until the whole party membership gets to choose between the final two.
