Penny Eliminated, Liz and Rishi Through to Membership Vote mdi-fullscreen
  • Rishi Sunak: 137 (+19)
  • Liz Truss: 113 (+27)
  • Penny Mordaunt: 105 (+13) OUT

Only eight votes between Truss and Mordaunt – an incredibly tight contest and it seems predictions about Kemi’s backers switching wholesale for Liz were off the mark. Bad news for Andrea Leadsom’s prospects as Chancellor…

Looking at Rishi’s performance it’s poor compared to previous final round frontrunners:

Rishi: 38% of Tory MPs
Boris: 66% of Tory MPs
May: 60% of Tory MPs
Cameron: 45% of Tory MPs

Penny Lame/the Penny’s dropped/Penny well spent: pick your own.
