PERSONALITY QUIZ: Which Conservative leadership candidate are you?

James Dawson

You could be a Boris Johnson or a Michael Gove, or maybe you’re more of a Hunt

After a brutal round of voting that last week saw three candidates chopped from the Conservative leadership contest and another drop out voluntarily, we’re now down to an all-male shortlist of six MPs vying to become Tory leader.

Jeremy Hunt, Michael Gove, Dominic Raab, Sajid Javid, Rory Stewart and Boris Johnson. Each with their respective takes on Brexit – ranging from “we need to leave as soon as possible” to “WE NEED TO GET THE FUCK OUT, EVEN AT THE THREAT OF CIVIL WAR” – and each with their own style of leadership.

To international outsiders accustom to presidential-style elections, it probably doesn’t make much sense that our country’s leader is going to be decided by a small group of coffin-dodgers and toffs. In fact, it doesn’t make much sense to the British public either. I guess that’s just democracy.

The good news, though, is that even if you can’t vote in the contest, you can at least find out which of them is your Conservative spirit animal thanks to this handy personality quiz.

Take it below.
