The six remaining Conservative Party leadership hopefuls have unanimously sacked specialist Damian Broadbent after the advice he provided on the first round of questions.

‘All I could hear in my head when I was asked ‘what’s your biggest weakness’ was his advice ‘cocaine and hookers’ said Michael Gove today ahead of this evening’s second debate.

Rory Stewart said he was fearful of trick questions, like ‘what did you eat for breakfast?’ ‘Christ, I’m still changing my mind over that answer,’ he said.

The only PM hopeful not bothered by the questions is Boris. ‘I probably won’t turn up, and if I do, then I’ll just lie. And that’s the truth. Or a lie, I can’t decide.’
