If Johnson was incapacitated for some time I think the Murdoch mafia would want their man Gove in the driving seat rather than Raab or Hancock.
Despite all his cunning, Gove has the misfortune to resemble many people's image of a nonce.
He's also pretty weak on rhetoric, and liable to be handed his own liver by Starmer in any straight up debate.
Murdoch will have a hell of a job spinning Gove into something electable, I've no idea what trait of his you could even promote. Being a sensible moderate perhaps? But even that is laughable compared to Starmer.
Hancock may fancy himself but if he had any credit/excuses at the start of this pandemic, they long evaporated the moment he was smirking about some appalling statistic on a live TV interview. I doubt he'll be detoxified enough before 2030.
I get that machismo strongman vibe from Raab, which they may well fancy putting forward after Bumbling Boris' Buffoonery and inability to control anything without looking like an insecure toddler.
