Boris Johnson is the overwhelming choice among Tele readers to be the next prime minister.
We asked readers on Friday, following the news that Theresa May would step down on June 7, who they thought should be next leader of the Conservative Party.
As the party with most MPs in the UK parliament, the next Tory leader will become the prime minister.
Of 130 votes, a massive 33% backed Mr Johnson, the former Foreign Secretary and Mayor of London, to lead the country.
Mr Johnson was the clear leader, with Dominic Raab and Amber Rudd a long way behind in joint second on 13 votes.
Boris Johnson – 43
Dominic Raab – 13
Amber Rudd – 13
Michael Gove – 12
Andrea Leadsom – 12
Sajid Javid – 10
Rory Stewart – 10
Esther McVey – 8
Jeremy Hunt – 5
Penny Mordaunt – 3
Matthew Hancock – 1
Despite the big support he received, Mr Johnson – a noted Brexiteer – received only guarded praise in the comments.
One reader wrote: “Best of a bad bunch.”
Another voiced: “Hope he would get us OUT, FAST No deal favoured.”
Perhaps summing up the mood was Chris Hainey, who wrote: “Honestly like being asked if you’d like to be castrated using an axe, a shark, or a chinchilla. All terrible choices.”
The Tele also took to the streets of Dundee following Mrs May’s statement on Friday morning.
A tearful Mrs May said in a statement in Downing Street she had “done her best” to get her withdrawal agreement through parliament but stated she regretted that she had failed to do so.
The news of Mrs May’s departure was met with smiles by the people we spoke to.
Vanessa Gibb, 27, unemployed from Douglas said: “I’m glad she has resigned.
“I definitely don’t want Boris Johnson. Possibly Michael Gove because I think he can do a lot more than Theresa May can do.”
Barrie Johnson, 72, retired, from Forfar said: “I think she should never have been prime minister.
“I think Andrea Leadsom is a safe pair of hands.
“As for Boris I’m afraid he’s got a wee bit of a buffoon image though he’s trying his best to get clear of it.”
Mary McCabe 80, retired, from Craigiebank, added: “She’s had a hard time.
“I have a feeling that Boris Johnson is a certainty.”
Janice Larkins, 69, from Fintry, said: “We are going to end up with Donald Trump running Britain if Boris Johnson gets in.
“They are dangerous people. The whole Conservative Party should resign. I’m not a fan of any of the politicians. It’s going to be the inmates running the asylum.”
Ruby Bannon, 70, from the Hilltown, said: “I’m glad she has resigned. She is not good for the country.
“I think what Billy Connolly says is right, the fact that they want to do it should disqualify them.
“Michael Gove might have more experience than other ones, it’s the lesser of so many evils.”
The bookies’ favourite to replace May is former foreign secretary Mr Johnson, followed by former secretary of state for exiting the EU Mr Raab.
Former commons leader Andrea Leadsom, environment secretary Michael Gove, former health service boss Jeremy Hunt, Penny Mordaunt, home secretary Sajid Javid and secretary of state for international development Rory Stewart have also already announced they would stand for the Tory leadership. The race to see who will be the next prime minister begins on June 10.
Leader of the opposition, Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn, has called for a general election.
