The candidates for the next leader of the Conservative Party are set to take part in a live televised debate tonight, with the show called − shudder − Our Next Prime Minister. It8217;s a hugely significant event, and our guide reveals everything you need to know to watch the Tory leadership debate on TV and online, wherever you are.
The candidates are Environment Secretary Michael Gove, International Development Secretary Rory Stewart, ex-Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, Home Secretary Sajid Javid and, who could forget, front-runner Boris Johnson.
As was the case for Channel 48217;s Sunday evening debate − which Johnson brazenly swerved − the candidates will be tasked with skilfully avoiding answering a series of questions from a host of probably not-too-happy individuals – Tory and not – as they connect via video link across the country.
