Pathetically no journalists allowed in the room for the One Nation hustings of Tory leadership candidates... they're only deciding the next PM in there

Stopping Farage the main concern so far. Sajid Javid says: "We will not beat the Brexit Party by becoming the Brexit Party"
Saj has said he'll keep no deal on the table but tells 81 MPs at One Nation hustings (mostly Remainers) that "a deal is sensible and responsible"
Rory Stewart claims 2.2 million people have watched his Twitter videos

“Telling the truth is enormously popular. 2.2 million people have watched me tell the truth about no deal Brexit. We have to be honest to hold the Party together. We’ve chased unicorns we can’t catch.”
Rory Stewart says he won’t pull out of the race despite limited public support from colleagues. Claims “the truth” is he can win

“I’ve been straight from the beginning and told the truth. That’s what’ll get me to the end. I’m in it to win. I don’t feel pressure [to withdraw]”
100 MPs now in the room for Boris. He says:

"In order to be successful we must get ready for no deal. The more determined we are to pursue no deal the less likely we will have to deploy it. I do not want it. But to have an orderly exit from the EU it is vital you prepare."
More Boris at One Nation hustings:

"I would immediately step up no deal preparation but I do not believe that is what will happen. It is not in the EU's interests."
Boris clearly states no deal prep will be ramped up from day one if he enters No10

Says it's not his desired outcome but argues the best way forward is to properly prepare
Boris rules out general election

Rules out deal with Farage and says he must be "put back in his box... I can take on Farage and win back the voters being won over by him"

Rules out second referendum "with every fibre of my body"
Andrea Leadsom promises to do a monthly phone in with the general public and town hall events if she gets the job
NEW: Andrea Leadsom tells One Nation MPs she has consulted the clerks of the House about proroguing Parliament to force through a ‘managed’ no deal
Leadsom said after speaking to clerks she didn’t think proroguing Parliament would be easy and the civil service would push back

Also didn’t say whether she’d do it

Saj completely ruled it out
Second source says Leadsom has in fact ruled out proroguing Parliament
