That's a remarkably coincidental statistic. Quality BBC trolling.

It follows a consultation with 190,000 people, of which 52% were in favour of reforming or abolishing free licences.

That protestor seems perfectly happy to quite forcibly take the stage from a leadership candidate and violently shout his views, but quite anxious that no-one invades his personal space and security by touching him.

Seeing the candidates pics all lined up on BBC News earlier reminded me of a police 'most wanted villains' line up.

Hoping McVey will be the first to be eliminated, utterly spiteful woman.

Speaking of which, i'm tempted to do a Tory Leadership Eliminator! Then again, maybe not.

Nobody would bother voting, except Denster.

So it’d be just like the actual race for the new PM.

It beggars belief that these 10 are the very best the country has to offer as the next PM.

Maybe it’s Theresa May leaking all of these stories so she can remain as PM

I watched most of Matt Hancocks launch speech this morning whilst at the gym. Can anyone clear up what his position is on Brexit, does he just want May’s deal or is he saying something similar? I can’t work it out.

I think he wants to try and re negotiate.

banana split somehow manages to look sexually intimidating whilst at the same time looking as though he's been dead for a couple of months.

There was a twitter thread comparing all running candidates to taxidermy. I wish I could find it.

Edit - Found it. Pretty funny.

I fail at adding tweets so a URL will have to do.

I dunno actually, if a dealer said 'Well you could have the coke or you could take a bag of MYSTERY POWDER' then not going to lie I'd be conflicted.
