As he jostles for position against a phalanx of Brexiteer leadership rivals, Jeremy Hunt has been on a secret mission to persuade Conservative colleagues he is not just a re-Leaver, but a be-Leaver. “It’s going to take someone with a lot of charm, and shed loads of experience, combined with a very thick skin and nerves of steel. The current crop of candidates have some of these attributes but no one can yet point to one who has them all.”

Being one who has voted Tory. Most of his life I want this current crop crushed under foot.
