Tory leadership candidate Rory Stewart posts awkward video of him meeting three guys in east London

“I don’t fuck with politics, bro”

Conservative MP Rory Stewart is one of several British politicians vying to replace Theresa May as Prime Minister.

So far, he’s managed to set himself aside from the pack by insisting that a no-deal Brexit is unthinkable, and that the UK needs a more realistic approach towards leaving the European Union.

He has also been doing an awful lot of walking around the UK, showing up in various locations and chatting to citizens — or in some cases, Irish people.

Over the weekend, Stewart shared a video of him running into three guys originally from Dublin on Brick Lane in east London.

When asked what he’s filming for, Stewart explains that he’s standing to be Prime Minister, prompting one of the lads to say “I don’t fuck with politics, bro” and another to say “I’m gonna go get some Nando’s, nice to meet you, sir”.

In the end, Stewart shared the video with the caption “You can’t win ’em all.”

The video has picked up over 2,000 likes on Twitter since it was posted yesterday.

At the moment, Stewart has an outside shot of making it to 10 Downing Street. Paddy Power have him at 20/1, well behind Boris Johnson, who is favourite at 1/2.

As far as the odds are concerned, Jeremy Hunt and Andrea Leadsom are also well ahead of Stewart in the race to succeed Theresa May.
