Labour Leadership

Now that is not bad. I have been writing my blog for nearly two months and no mention of the Labour Leadership! Well, time to put that right. With the announcement this week that Michael Meacher MP is to run following on from the announcement some months ago that Jon Cruddas MP would be running at least there should now be a contest. The only problem is that they both need to collect about 44 signatures from fellow Labour MP’s just to have their name put on the ballot paper. I very much doubt they will both manage this feat. Even if they do I think that the very left wing agendas they are both promoting would be unlikely to capture more votes in Labours complex electoral college system for electing their leader than the left wing agenda of Gordon Brown……assuming he stands?
