Andrea Leadsom wants to be Tory leader. Does she really think that’s a good idea?

Oh dear. Another Tory blunderer wants to make a bid for the top spot in politics.

Andrea Leadsom actually ran for the Conservative Party leadership – and to be prime minister of the UK – back in 2016, but withdrew in order to allow the coronation of Theresa May to happen unopposed. We all know how that turned out!

Now, according to some political commentators, she fancies her chances again. Here‘s the Huffington Post:

“Asked if she would run this time, Leadsom said:  “Yes, I am seriously considering standing. I’m disgusted at the fact that nearly three years on and still we haven’t left the EU.”

Is it a good idea? Well, let’s consider some of the things Ms Leadsom has said in the past:

That seems conclusive; she appears to be a female Boris Johnson.

And of course there is also the question of whether she is a homophobic bigot:

Just think: What Mr Johnson did for the Conservative Party’s race relations, Ms Leadsom could do for relationships… It doesn’t bear thinking about, does it?

    She’s unquestionably stupid enough to think she’s intellectually capable and emotionally suited to being PM,

    Let as many as possible throw their hats in then the fights and squabbles can start and bypass the set time they have to put a PM in place and thus force a GE

    Leadsom or Johnson? Worst or Worstest? Johnson often speaks out of turn so I doubt our spy chiefs and business leaders will want him to lead the Tories whether their base wants him or not. He’d be privy to far more secrets and could blurt out anything and give the party a mortal wound. May is bad but she knows how to say nothing.
