Ready4Raab gets primed for launch as Theresa May's leadership limps on

Fans of ex-housing minister Dominic Raab have been buying up online real-estate to support his expected Tory leadership bid.

Variants of the slogan 'Ready For Raab' have been bought up as web domain names this week in anticipation of the troubled Theresa May premiership coming to a sudden end. 

The purchases were confirmed on Monday - just as the PM secured changes to her Brexit deal to take back to the Commons for a doomed second vote. But they expire in a year - so the secretive customers clearly expect a Tory leadership race to be done and dusted very soon indeed. 

The addresses registered include readyforraab.com and ready4raab.com - plus the same variants using the .co.uk ending.

Total Politics understands the domains were not bought up by the former Brexit Secretary himself, while the supportive Ready For Raab Twitter account also denied involvement.

Which begs the question: is anyone truly ready for Raab?
