The Guardian reports:
Ben Wallace, an MP who was working on Johnson’s campaign, wrote on Twitter that Gove would be like Theon Greyjoy from TV series Game of Thrones, “by the time I am finished with him”. The character was tortured in a dungeon and had his penis removed.
Extraordinary to have one MP tweet this about another in their party.
But Gove may well not make the final two. Theresa May is almost certain to be one of the final two. The Conservative caucus vote on the five candidates, and the two highest polling go forward to a full membership ballot.
Andrea Leadson may get the second highest number of votes, which would mean teh final choice would be between two women.
