Debating the current Tory leadership race, an audience member has insisted that there is only one candidate who can unite the UK and deliver Brexit. Speaking on BBC Question Time, the man insisted that Boris Johnson is the candidate that should be elected as the next Prime Minister. The man admitted that we “desperately need” anyone who can unite the country as the UK heads towards the October 31 exit date and argued that Mr Johnson was the man to do it.
In a damning statement on the current state of UK politics, the man also stated that there aren’t many politicians who can do the job required.
Although the new Tory leader will not be elected until next month, Mr Johnson has emerged as the overwhelming favourite to take over from Theresa May.
The former Foreign Secretary received a mammoth 114 votes in Thursday’s second round of voting.
With Jeremy Hunt only receiving only 43 votes in second place, it is widely expected that Mr Johnson will surge to victory next month.

However, after winning on Thursday, Mr Johnson did issue a word of caution as he announced that there was still a “long way to go”.
Current Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, however, stated confidently that he is the man to take Mr Johnson on.
Mr Hunt added: “Boris did well today but what the result shows is, when it comes to the members’ stage, I’m the man to take him on.”
Meanwhile, Michael Gove stated that it was “all to play for” and that he was looking forward to next week’s TV debates.
