As predicted after we heard that the Rt Hon Colonel had transferred her favours to Gove, Hunt will be the other contestant in the finals of the amateur league tiddlywinks competition currently happening in London.
Gove got 75 MPs – just two votes short of Hunt’s 77.
Mr Johnson, considered the favourite in the race, was backed by 160 Conservative MPs, so more than half.
So presumably our Ruth will offer her vote to Jeremy. Which means of course that Boris will be tiddlywink champion for the next 6 months. But fear ye not, Ruthie will simply change allegiance as she thinks fit in order to best serve her ambitions.
