GUEST,Fred McCormick BS: electing a new labour leader (311* d) RE: BS: electing a new labour leader 19 Aug 15


Ahh, the horns of the dilemma. I'm definitely voting for Corbyn as party leader, with Andy Burnham as my probable second choice.

Regarding the choice of deputy, I first thought of Tom Watson - campaigner on several important issues such as child abuse and phone hacking. But then he voted in favour of the Iraq war, and has subsequently voted against holding an inquiry into the same. Just in case Watson has forgotten, the Iraq war is precisely the reason why so many Labour stalwarts left, and was a major contributory factor as to why the party is in the state it's currently in.

But having read the campaign literature of the others, and watched them in action, I can't see how one could possibly slide a fag paper between Eagle, Bradshaw, Creasby and Flint.

To put that another way. Does anyone know of a single left wing credential among any of them?
