A piece by Sky News reveals that BoJo is in a commanding position in the Tory leadership contest

Johnson is said to have the support of 74 MPs, well ahead of his nearest challenger, Jeremy Hunt, who only has 32 MPs on his side. Michael Gove resides in third position with the support of 30 MPs and that is followed by Dominic Raab holding support of 22 MPs.

This will no doubt continue to feed into the notion that it's a matter of inevitability that we'll see Boris Johnson take over from Theresa May as the next British prime minister.
