    Jeremy Corbyn

    Favourite to become the Labour leader........who would have called that one?

    I knew Labour had to move to the left to become electable outwith Scotland but did not think it would happen that quickly.

    Fingers crossed that he wins. Labour will be unelectable as a government as a result.

    Re: Jeremy Corbyn

    I think a lot of Labour supporters don't necessarily see Corbyn as the ideal sort of leader, but they want to see the version of Labour ideology he espouses represented in the debate. The other candidates are all centre or centre-right and are more like the professional slippery politician with flexible and purchasable ideology that occupies the ranks of the Toey party and which many people despise.

    Shame on those in Labour who do not want this debate to happen or who want to deny what is clearly the will of a large share of the party. Shame on the other candidates who have not better recognised this crucial aspect of Labour.

    As for going back to the 80s, if that is to a time when Labour does not support faking documents to start unnecessary wars which destabilised the Middle East, doesn't support stealth privatization of the NHS and punitive PFI contracts, and won't support of the City leading to an economic meltdown, then I can't wait to get back there.

    Wot he sez.

    Labour will have returned to the days of Kinnock & Foot... we need viable opposition, irrespective of who's in govt, if only to stop the excesses of whoever is in power. Equally, a working majority to stop irritating gnats like the SNP - get it, (g)NATS... i'll get my coat.

    Labour are probably unelectable for a generation anyway, so I hope he gets elected. Will make things a little more interesting to have actual opposition.
