The first in a ConservativeHome series of what the new Prime Minister must do in the month before Parliament returns in September.
Nicky Morgan: Our report on Alternative Arrangements holds the key to leaving the EU at last – and avoiding a general election
Those preparing to block No Deal should add our final report, to be released this week, to their summer reading list.
Mohammed Amin: I don’t like the term “Islamophobia”. But since we’re stuck with it, here’s my own definition.
I have intentionally used the structure of the IHRA definition of anti-semitism, since it has become an industry standard.
That newspapers may technically be open to proceedings over the Darroch cables highlights weaknesses in our legislation.
Iain Mansfield: Brexit by October 31. Stop using the Left’s language. And stand for skilled workers. Essentials for our next Prime Minister.
Which candidate can devise and push through the policies needed to unite the Tory shires with the Leave voters of the north?
Conservatism has long been far to hesitant about both reversing bad policy and cutting quangos. May offers her successor an easy place to start.
The veteran broadcaster put Johnson under severe pressure…but it’s very late in the day in the contest.
Paul Goodman and Mark Wallace on surveys, polls, reports, Dalloch, Andrew Neil – and what happens next.
Tom Tugendhat: The last two men left standing in this contest must resist the temptation to slug it out
While there is no shortage of ideas, there has been a shortage of leadership. We need a Prime Minister who will take us through Brexit and confront the challenges beyond.
The front-runner promised over a thousand Party members to employ “creative ambiguity” to achieve Brexit by October 31st.
Iain Dale: It’s shocking to see some Conservative MPs doing the Left’s work by slagging off the front-runner.
The Left, parts of the media and the EU will seek to get him out. The Right must unite, rally round him – and circle the wagons.
John Jenkins: Too many excuses are made for Iran – especially by the EU. We must get real, stand with America, and take decisive action.
I’m glad to see we’ve now had the guts to stop a tanker we believe is smuggling Iranian oil in defiance of sanctions on Syria.
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.
Who will get Brexit done? Who is best placed to defeat Corbyn at the next election? And who would do the best job of leading a government?
Rachel Wolf: The Birmingham schools gay relationships row. Religious conservatives won’t like it, but government must take a stand.
You can’t ignore the existence of couples and families that you’ve actively supported in legislation.
