The idea of a peripatetic chap constantly seeking a bed for the night reminded me of this classic from 1977.....    "The Upchat Line"

Wonder if he will go for London Mayor?

Interesting if he does. I suspect he will appeal to a lot of metropolitan Tories, particularly as the offical candidate is so unimpressive, but also attract some Labour voters who see Sadiq Khan as having been pretty ineffectual, and the Lib Dems, who approve of anyone that owns more than one pair of walking boots. Probably not enough to win outright, but if he then picks up the second choice votes he could give Khan a run for his money.

The official Tory candidate is Shaun Bailey.  A man who proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the word "Gammon" is not a racist term.

In some ways I like Rory Stewart but I went off him when he started to regurgitate Brexit misinformation and propaganda. I don't know how he lives with himself as he is more than intelligent enough to know the truth.

He does talk sense on some subjects though, and I do think his efforts to connect with people are commendable if sometimes it doesn't quite work out.

He's a coward. If he had any guts he'd be banging the drum against Boris Johnson. Instead he's playing a side show pointlessly contesting an election. I have no sympathy, the guys out for his own payslip first and foremost.

The butler has been keeping his sawn-off handy ever since this was announced, should he dare to show his wonky face near Larrington Towers.

I bet Rory's butler is bigger than yours.
