Will there be a new leader of the UK Conservative party before the general election?

Election means held, not called, just in case they're crazy enough to combine GE campaign and leadership election!

The election has been announced for the 4th of July. Seems likely that Rishi will manage to hold on until then.

The only realistic path to a new leader is for the 1922 to call a VONC immediately (before dissolution of parliament next week) and parachute in a new unity candidate, this seems extremely unlikely but I guess it's still possible.

Arb with this market (unless you think Sunak will be ousted as PM but not Tory leader or v/v).
