But his appeal is one of morbid curiosity rather than trust and admiration. He's totally unrelatable.
I think he could end up being the Tory's equivalent of Corbyn. A cult following, crystal clear and admirable views, but no real outreach to middle ground voters and no credible street level perspective.

As such it would be a mistake to make him a leader. However, as somebody to have around to stir things up and challenge people's views and kick start ideas he is quite useful. If the Torys are smart, that's where they'll keep him.

As Labour should have done with Corbyn.
