Leadership election candidate MP support numbers: Hunt 27, Johnson 19, Raab 13, Gove 12, Javid 10

The arms race to name supporters has begun, and on balance we’ve decided to join it.

We have been compiling our own list for some time both of declared and undeclared supporters of possible contenders.

Some names will doubtless come off one column and be added to another…only perhaps later to revert to the original.

At any rate, here we go: as we wrote yesterday, what strikes us so far is how fluid the Parliamentary stage of the contest is presently set to be.
