    RLB will get the job because the other contenders and their supporters will be subject to intimidation from the corbynistas and his mafia....

    It is about time the Labour Party had a female leader.

    So it will be a comfortable win for Sir Keir Starmer then.

    Jess Phillips for me, the only one who can re-connect with Labours lost voters. Simply because she is the only one who can open her gob and speak honestly and with conviction.

    Long-Bailey propped up by Momentum's Jon Lansman (Labour leader?), a guy who with one look at his coiffed hair, designer specs and floral shirts will send any cradle to grave northern Labour voter running away as fast as he/she can. Plus she makes Boris look honest.

    Starmer, he's blown it right now! He may or may not end up Labour leader but he'll lose the next election, he cannot nail his colours to the mast, any colours or any mast, and that is what caused voters to not vote Tory at the election, but to vote not-Labour.

    Is the question who we think will win or who we want to win?

    Either way it doesn't matter, none of them will have any influence whatsoever on British politics over the next 20 years...

    Watched Newsnight last night with the last 4 candidates and there was only Lisa Nandy in the real world, she was saying on the doorsteps past Labour voters were saying they didn't trust Labour on Brexit and they were also concerned on the lack of control with regards immigration.
    Even as a daughter of an Indian immigrat she said she could see their point, next one to talk about immigration was no other than Sir Keir Starmer, saying under him it would be a free for all, they have just had the biggest kicking in the bollocks from the electorate and they still churn out the same old policies.
    Emily Thornberry who when she opens her gob makes me instantly dislike her actually got it right, the last general election was all about Brexit but Labour had a wishy washy will we won't we policy the electorate couldn't vote for them, even with free broadband thrown in, well I ask you what was that all about a deal breaker, you have to laugh.

    I have not been taking much notice of the race for the next Labour leader to be honest.

    I do like my politics, but just think I am suffering from overkill with all the brexit talk and recent General Election.

    Not sure who the party will turn to, but whoever they do, has a massive and thankless task in my opinion in turning around the popularity of this once proud working class party.

    Even though I have always voted Conservative since 1979, the country needs a strong opposition party, and there isnt even a hint of there being one in the near future.

    Lisa Nandy was head and shoulders over the rest on newsnight, Doubt she will win though, Momentum will decide who will win it

    That was a bit of a bolt out of the blue Sajid Javid resigning, having said that I can understand his stance with regards sacking his team.
    Andrea Leadsom was a bit of a surprise, but he's surrounded himself with pro brexiters which I dont think is a bad thing, its going to be a very interesting 11 months ahead if they stick to their promises.

    Wrong Daily has the brown shirt behind her. Anyone who speak ill of Corbyn and Corbyn without a beard will be vilified on social media and hounded round the country by this lot.

    Anyone notice how there are no kids sleeping on hospital floors now we are not in the run up to an election?
