Who could be Britain’s next prime minister if Boris Johnson is ousted?

The ousting of Boris Johnson has unleashed the ‘hounds of hell’ and has sparked a bitter leadership race that will see Tories ‘shredding each other to pieces’, Nadine Dorries has warned as hopefuls gear up to replace him. The culture secretary – one of the Prime Minister’s most stringent supporters – warned colleagues that they have to ‘keep the cabinet sailing steadily and keep the government running smoothly’. Her plea for stability came amid fears that the race to replace Boris Johnson will turn into a ‘Grand National’ or become akin to eleven businesses competing for the same contract. ‘People will shred each other to pieces in the media. It’s going to be a bloodbath,’ she said. One leadership hopeful, Liz Truss (centre left), will pitch herself as the female Boris Johnson in the Tory leadership race – a candidate who can win seats both in the South and the Red Wall, supporters said last night. The Foreign Secretary is among more than a dozen MPs preparing to launch bids to be the next Prime Minister within days. Others in the running include Rishi Sunak (top left), Sajid Javid (second from top right), Ben Wallace (second from top left), Nadhim Zahawi (bottom left), Penny Mordaunt (top right), Suella Braverman (centre right), Tom Tugendhat (second from bottom left), Steve Baker (second from bottom right), and Jake Berry (bottom right). While the events of this week appear to have cemented the Prime Minister’s demise, the race to replace him has effectively been going on for months.
