The thing is, none of the resigning tories have suddenly woken up and grown a conscience, they just realised that the abhorrence of the party has reached its tipping point for the general public and are all getting out now while they still have a choice so they can claw back some pretence of ever having any morals.

12 days “work” … £115,000 per year for the rest of her life.
The system is absolutely broken.

50% are people of colour
50% are women
50% are under 45
50% have a non upper class background
100% of them are ultra right wing bastards
Every single one of these candidates supported Priti Patel’s anti immigration laws.
They’re vocal in their transphobia, making it a main part of their platform.
A lot of them were part of BoJo’s cabinet, which oversaw hundreds of Britons having to choose between heating and food.
They attack those in poverty for relying on benefits but do nothing to stop the living crisis.
The Conservative Party’s leadership race is a brilliant example of how diversity quotas are meaningless if their politics are the all the same.

A fortune teller dubbed "Mystic Veg" as she predicts the future using asparagus believes that Ben Wallace will be the UK's next Prime Minister.
Jemima Packington, 66, previously foresaw Brexit, Boris Johnson becoming PM four years before he took office, Prince Philip's death and Harry and Meghan stepping back from the Royal Family.
She makes her predictions by tossing spears into the air and interpreting how they land on the ground.
Now Jemima says the spears are pointing towards Defence Secretary Ben Wallace to take over as leader once Mr Johnson resigns.
She also believes 100/1 outsider Nadine Dorries could also be in with a shout of taking over as PM - and is a more likely candidate than Rishi Sunak or Penny Mordaunt...
Jemima, who is the world's only Asparamancer, said: "The asparagus has come up with two front-runners for the next Prime Minister.
"Ben Wallace, which would not be the biggest shock given his prominence with the war in Ukraine but also Nadine Dorries.
"It is pointing more towards Mr Wallace who appears to be the Tory's choice so would make more sense, but we could be in for a surprise candidate.
"I don't think it will be a bookies favourite who will take over, it could be more of a shock.
"With Dorries it could have been her keeping your friends close but your enemies closer, she may well have been playing a game.
"The spears are telling me who it definitely won't be as well and it won't be Rishi Sunak or David Davies.
"In terms of a cabinet it has been rather unclear, but the asparagus has told me there may well be a place for Nigel Huddleston, the MP for Worcestershire.
"The rest of the cabinet would be like throwing darts at pictures of politicians, not even the spears can give me any indication.
"Just a few days ago they were telling me Boris would try to stay and cling on - and that's exactly what he did do.

Update, July 13th, 2022: Today -- three days late -- I caught the story that Ben Wallace had opted not to run. Maybe Mystic Veg should try using turnips instead of asparagus?
