It looks like stabbing Boris Johnson in the back and getting him out of the race has done little good for Michael Gove, who has been kicked out of the Tory leadership race after the latest round of voting.
Gove finished a distant third with 46 votes in the latest round of voting, finishing behind Home Secretary Theresa May and Energy Minister Andrea Leadsom with 199 and 84 votes respectively.
Voting for the next leader of the UK’s Conservative Party has commenced, with Home Secretary Theresa May winning the first round of voting.
May won the first round with 50% of the votes ahead of Andrea Leadsom and Michael Gove, who finished a surprising third.
The Conservative Party in the UK are in a warzone currently, as a group of candidates vie to be elected as the party’s leader post Cameron and thus in effect, it’s next Prime Minister.
Interestingly, whilst the candidate’s fight to be chosen, it seems like one of their own party’s oldest and most respected MP’s has very little faith in them.
