So, I've updated the thread title so we can use this earlier thread (originally on the 2016 Tory leadership contest) to discuss the fight for the Tory leadership and the UK Premiership in July 2019. The race began in earnest yesterday (10 June 2019).

So, to start things off, who would you like to see as the new Conservative leader and UK prime minister and why? Who do you expect to be in the final two that go before the Conservative Party membership?

Well at least it's done more democratically now than it was in the days of "the Magic Circle" when the leader emerged after consultations between leading Tory grandees. That process ended after Lord Home was chosen as leader (and the new prime minister) in October 1963.

Home created the new system for electing a new Tory leader under what is still called the Douglas-Home Rules. There have been some amendments to this since then, but it's largely the same system first tried out with the Tory leadership contest in July 1965 where Edward Heath was elected Tory leader.

Well, Sir Alec Douglas-Home is my favourite British prime minister so I do know a bit about him and that period. I just wish he'd been PM for a bit longer, but the choice of the electors did not work out that way, although he vastly reduced the majority of the victorious Labour Party to just four seats. That was no mean feat, considering that he ultimately had less than a year until the next general election was due.
