Who will be voted off the Island? The Daily Telegraph handicaps them for you.


That's Boris. Haven't we seen this picture someplace else before?



Who could be the next Tory leader if Theresa May is ousted? All the runners and riders detailed
[www.telegraph.co.uk]

From Boris Johnson to Sajid Javid to Michael Gove to Jeremy Hunt to Gavin Williamson to Jacob Rees-Mogg

Here's a sample from the Telegraph article for
Michael Gove
The Environment Secretary has played his cards very, very carefully in recent weeks.

While privately he has raised significant concerns about Mrs May's Brexit policy and even ripped up a page of her customs partnership plan during one meeting, publicly he has been far more reticent.

His interview with Andrew Marr at the weekend was a case in point, backing the Prime Minister's plan as a "proper" exit from the European Union.

While he said the Chequers compromise was not what he had hoped for, he added that he was a "realist". His comments are in stark contrast to those of Boris Johnson, who described the Brexit plan at Chequers as a "turd".

There remains a significant level of mistrust between the two men after Mr Gove stabbed Mr Johnson in the "back, front and side" during the last Tory leadership contest, and many Eurosceptics still view him with suspicion.

However he has been actively courting fellow MPs and speaking at innumerable think tank events. As Environment Secretary, his war on single-use plastic is one of the few genuinely popular domestic policies and Mrs May has put it at the heart of her agenda. Could his political renaissance take him all the way to the very top?
