CONSERVATIVE PARTY LEADERSHIP ELECTION RESULT. IT’S JOHNSON BY A TWO TO ONE MARGIN – 66 PER CENT TO 34 PER CENT.
He wins by 92,153 votes to 46,656, on an 87 per cent turnout – 159,320 votes cast in all.
It is not, repeat not, always right to “believe the victim” – precisely because, as in this case, the victim is sometimes not a victim at all.
The more centralised her decision-making became, the less control over events she actually had.
Johnson will want no distractions from Brexit this summer, but history suggests that he may get one – in the Straits of Hormuz.
Our final Next Tory Leader survey. Johnson 73 per cent, Hunt 27 per cent, say those members who have voted.
But because the ballot has been spread out over several weeks, earlier surveys may be a better guide to Tuesday’s result.
Johnson’s August 4) Who would run an election campaign? After yesterday’s Government defeat, the question is pressing.

Our survey. Next Tory Leader. Johnson 72 per cent, Hunt 28 per cent. 72 per cent overall have voted. On these figures, Johnson has already won.
If the survey is accurate, it would be reasonable to assume, on the evidence available, that he will gain between 67 per cent and 71 per cent of the vote.
71 per cent of Johnson supporters and 58 per cent of Hunt supporters have already voted, according to our survey.
All of which supports the view that a clear majority of Party members have already returned their ballot papers.
