One cannot help but enjoy a certain amount of schadenfreude – glee at Gideon’s discombobulation.

He thought he was a shoe-in but the general public – and Tory supporters as well – prefer BoZo or even the Terrible May over him, and the appalling deficit figures for October won’t have done him any good either.

George Osborne’s hopes of succeeding David Cameron as the next Tory leader have been dashed, according to a new poll that shows Boris Johnson and Theresa May ahead of the Chancellor among Conservative supporters.

The Mayor of London now leads among Conservative voters and the general public, with the Home Secretary second in both categories.

An Ipsos MORI poll for the Evening Standard found that Mr Johnson is the favourite candidate for leader among a third of Conservative supporters, a quarter back Ms May, while the number of Tories who prefer Mr Osborne has slumped to 23 per cent, slipping from first to third in the space of six weeks.
