'watson?johnson?' i saw tom watson talking at maryport and wasn't particularly impressed in terms of his analysis and new labourishness. however, he does seem a decent sort and would probably be an efficient and conscientious organiser - so i voted for him on that basis, with jeremy corbyn to provide the direction and policies. (and hope!)
it may not be jeremy corbyn but maybe some of the more adaptable labour mps will be encouraged to let their more positive instincts lead them to do the job they were elected to do. from them we may find some newish talent emerging to give an invigorated labour movement real confidence to take on the tories.
alan johnson has not been interested in the job before and has made it clear that he doesn't like corbyn (or socialism). he is not the man to take the party forward.
