BREAKING: Toryleadership contest cancelled after all 11 candidates check into rehab.

Beware the pervasive consensus of the mainstream media commentariat that a Toryleadership contest changes nothing. Mrs May’s departure lifts a huge deadweight from British politics. We don’t know who or what will come out from under it.
