Of all the names being tossed about as potential replacements for Theresa May (generally viewed as being kaput), the frontrunners appear to be David Davis, Boris Johnston and even Amber Rudd.

The impressive Ruth Davidson in Scotland also gets a passing mention, but what about Sajid Javid, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (left)?

Unusually for the Tories, Javid, the son of a Pakistani bus driver, has no problem showing his human side. Not as posh as Boris, not as wooden as May, much more likeable than Davis... the one to watch?
