Who would you choose to replace David Cameron as Prime Minister?

Prime Minister David Cameron is to step down by October after the UK voted to leave the European Union.

Speaking outside 10 Downing Street, he said “fresh leadership” was needed.

Mr Cameron announced shortly after 08:15 BST that he had informed the Queen of his decision to remain in place for the short term and to then hand over to a new prime minister by the time of the Conservative conference in October.

He would attempt to “steady the ship” over the coming weeks and months, but that it would be for the new prime minister to carry out negotiations with the EU and invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which would give the UK two years to negotiate its withdrawal, he said.

Who would be your first choice for Prime Minister?

I think I may have detected a flaw in your plan.

UKIP have just the one MP, Douglas Carswell. Farage has gone, and it now looks possible that Douglas Carswell will cross the floor and go back to the Tories.
.
As for the other two. Fascists based groups have never been able to contribute to a fair and balanced debate. I think we can forget them.

Although to be fair, fascist groups, as small as they may be, do seem able to keep the shops that sell black leather jackets, Doc Martens boots and megaphones just about ticking along.

I think that a coalition of Brexit MP's might be the best solution, at least in the transitional stage.
Labour and the wishy washy Lib Dems must never be allowed office ever again.
So, a new and serious challenger needs to chuck his/her hat into the ring.
UKIP, Britain First and Libertygb are all serious contenders, they are also anti-EU and against muslim immigration.

This MUST go to a General Election, we have voted to LEAVE the EU and one of the reasons for me was being governed by UNELECTED leaders.
We must have a vote to elect a new PM not have one foisted on us unelected by the electorate

Linda, I think you're correct. We had a man, elected as an MP, but not to the leadership. That was Gordon Brow. Strictly speaking he had no mandate to govern. (actually, he tried to rule!)

Whoever gets the Tory leadership will have no mandate to govern.

It must go to a general election. They must break all the rules and call an election during th summer recess. October, traditionally the earliest date at this time of year, is just too late!

In principle I agree however any general election at this juncture would simply muddy the waters. We need an MP from the out camp, not a remain as this would simply exacerbate the current media created void we have.
The general election is not too far off anyway.

I am not and never have been a Tory. Having said that, I have seen Angela Leadson on a few occasions during the referendum, in interviews/debates and I have to say I have been VERY impressed by her. I'd never heard of her before, but she made a big impression on me. She's cool, decisive, speaks the truth... most unusual these days and is keen to 'mend' the fishing and agriculture industries amongst others. She also says that we need our borders, enabling us to get the people we need to fill jobs. This doesn't make her, or me, racist before anyone suggests it. She loves her country and people. I was impressed how she stayed calm, answered all questions with integrity and without any rudeness in the debates, just like the girl next door. She would definitely get my vote, but doesn't seem to be getting the publicity of other nominees, even on Silversurfers list??

We've agreed on a lot of things Wilf, but I certainly, definitely disagree with your choice of George Osborne. Don't you think he's made enough of a mess of our country. He said he would lower our debt, throwing thousands of the less well off, disabled, etc into abject poverty with his cuts, but our debt has tripled to £1.7 billion. Please God, not George Osborne !!

I have to agree. As much as I didn't particularly like Cameron, I always thought him a bit too smarmy. I feel he would have been the best person to steer the country forward. There are as many negatives for all the other candidates as there was for Cameron. As for Labour, what would be the point in having them run the country, they are in complete disarray. The country would have been safer in the hands of the EU than them. I am not a staunch Tory supporter but in times of an economic downturn I would rather put my trust in them

Let,s face it, there does not appear to be any strong man or woman who would be able to keep control of his or her's particular party. There is so much internal bickering going on that it is just an explosive situation.
Although most readers will not like the idea of a military benign dictatorship, how can any one person bang these MP's heads together for the sake of the UK ? Except by armed force !!!

The various parties are split from top to bottom with the old grandees adding their not very "helpful" comments when they wake from their slumbers.

Perhaps if the MP's had their salaries witheld until they behaved themselves, then maybe sense would prevail !!

Further to below, we are so weakened as a nation, so cast adrift in the popular perception, if our exit negotiations don't serve us, then we stand in the place of a military coup.

It must be obvious there is now no love lost between politicians and the military thanks to years of cutbacks. We don't now have sufficient available forces to defend the English Channel against migrants if the French close the Calais camps.

Our government's first charge is to defend the realm. Our military's first duty is to defend the realm. If the government won't do that, then they will! It's their sworn duty, an oath made to the Queen, not the EU!

I don't think we may reasonably elect a single party to government. I posted below we needed a General Election but having thought about it much more I would now disagree with that earlier view.

Our three major political parties all shouted for the Remain campaign, so how may we now trust a party to negotiate the minefield of intricacies in extricating us from the EU with some honour remaining for us? How can we know Britain won't be sold down the river by them for their own preferment in the EU? It is, after all, the practice of the EU to buy people and most politicians come quite cheap by comparison.

I believe now is not the time for a General Election. The Conservatives are the sitting party of Government. They will elect a new leader, and of necessity he must have declared for, and publicly campaigned for, Brexit. Michael Gove would be a good leader; not a back slapping, toe tapping Tory careerist. On the contrary, he's quite unpopular in his own party.

His first act ought to be assemble a Cabinet from Brexit people from all three parties, and others who may serve this nation well, M.P's or not! A War Cabinet, as Churchill did in 1940. All solid Brexiteers. Not a coalition, no, but a government charged with negotiating the best exit package for us, and for good measure, plus twenty per cent!

May I suggest some office holders? Dan Hannan and Nigel Farage to lead the Exit team, (they know where the skeletons are!) with Rees-Mogg for EU legalities, David Davis for trade, Gisela Stuart to confront the German/French axis. (she knows what's in a few European closets too!), and Duncan Carswell taking the Foreign Office. Boris Johnson heading Home Affairs with IDS, Leadsome, and a few others heading ministries under his oversight. In the Commons there's a former Colonel in the British Army, time served, war hardened in the Balkans. He'll take Borders and immigration.

I'm struggling this evening to remember a Socialist leading light in the Brexit campaign, other than Gisela Stuart, but if there were any, we'll find a spot for them too. As for the Liberals, Greens etc., they are sidelined for at least five years while this job is done.

Further, the top and middle echelons of the Civil Service who have been so politicised by Cameron will be shown the door without a redundancy package.

Well, that should shake things up a little!

Not too difficult, haven't lived in North Yorkshire for twenty years. In a very remote part of Suffolk now.

Just as an aside, the Practice Nurse in our nearest surgery is an absolute dragon. She had a charisma bypass and really needs a ten year full time course in inter personal skills - that's what they call just being pleasant these days, isn't it?

For what it's worth I'm neither heavy smoker nor drinker. A pint of foaming home brew and a puff to end the day. And I learned to brew in Yorkshire!

You obviously take great interest, think deeply and weight up all the arguments. I have followed your 'conversation' with Roof Top Crow (I think his name was), prior to the referendum and agree with everything you say.

Nanabet, you rate me too highly. I was a farm worker, a postman and truck driver, and later a care worker. An ordinary bloke with an extraordinary background I rejected.

If I ever were to be an advisor then I'd sack most of them and call on some sensible people, people like you, ordinary, without wealth and privilege because there is more of us than there are them.

Just maybe things would come right.

But I do thank you, sincerely, for the compliment. It's one I don't deserve but one I will treasure. Thank you.

With affection and the deepest of respect to you both, I'm not a headline character. What with a speech defect and acute shyness I cannot and never will be a front line man.

No, I've much of my life alone on farms, in trucks and as a postman. Time to think, to see truth from a lie. Time to reflect on what was, what is and what might be.

I'm no sage sitting in a cave but having worked with pigs sheep and cattle for twenty five years the BS is rather obvious. I can smell it a mile off, and there's been a good deal of that this last three months. I know it!

Nan abet, I'm not more knowledgeable than you, no, please don't say that.

I chose to work alone on farms, as a postman and a truck driver. I stammer and am very, very shy. But that loneliness, as some would call it, has given me the opportunity to weigh things in the balance, to think about things and sift truth from the so very many lies fed us over the years.

Please nanabet, believe me, I am not more knowledgable than you. No I am not. It's just as said, my chosen life style allowed time to think, reflect, remember and generally mull things over.

I have no advantage over you, and nor do I want one. But I may say, with a speech defect and shyness, writing is a good outlet. You can't see me or hear me.

Above is my long considered opinion - the UK is so deeply mired in insolvable difficulties it will take more than the gathered minds of a single party to resolve our difficulties.

You cannot be serious??? David Cameron had the presence and intelligence to gain people's confidence? He'll go down as THE worst PM in history. He has ruined our country along with Gideon Osborne and ruined the lives of thousands of people. He certainly didn't gain my confidence cutting our Police and Armed Forces to the bone (whoever gets in next might want to think about trebling both) and he didn't gain the confidence of the sick and disabled when he took them off the unemployment records, cancer sufferers included. He is just one horrible self-serving person... that's why we need someone like Angela Leadson, a woman of the people!

They have such a short shelf life. It's the only job I know of where you can get away with not having to really prove your capabilities or experience or qualifications to the people you are going to be answerable to. In this current instance, once again, it's not our choice.

Yes Andrea would be excellent. I saw her on Question Time a week ago. She was excellent and would make at the least a brilliant chancellor. Apparently she has a background in finance

I am glad that we are leaving thEu. There isnt any candidate who stands out. Theresa May could be a candidate, Boris is very popular and his appearance belies the fact that he is a very intelligent man. Unfortunately this referendum has opened a huge rift within my family and a lot ofname calling and unpleasantness from the remain side.

A significant role must be found for Jacob Rees-Mogg the best brain in politics ,there are no female contenders except Protti Patel .Theresa May has been a disastrous Home Secretary !

I have just seen Boris on TV. he was quite the statesman. Still needs a haircut but maybe that will come. He has charisma which is key for a major politician

It has to be Boris. he is a bit of a wild card but even though he is a rich Tory lad he seems to be able to get on with anyone on the street and people do love him. The only thing is is he a bit batty to be PM??
