As Tory leadership rivals get their campaigns up and running – and start to work out how to torpedo their rivals – Game of Thrones returns to our screens. Now in its final series, the back-stabbing/front-stabbing fantasy drama sees various characters fight and plot their way to the Iron Throne.

'I'm not alone in backing Arya. It's never the favourite.'
With Raab currently 8/1 to be next Tory leader behind Boris Johnson and Michael Gove, what ever could he be getting at?
