    I don't really give a monkeys so I won't give you a hard time about it, but would be interested in yours (and other LP members) thoughts.
    Starmer and Rayner both seem OK. None of the candidates exactly have an air of incipient messiah-hood about them, which is probably just as well, after first Blair and then Corbyn.

    TBH I'd be happy with anyone who can go on the news without looking like a prat, is going to offer some decent socialist policies and not just warmed-over Blairism, and has never been on fucking Press TV.

    Fair enough. Starmer is inevitably getting some flack from my lot for various things he did not do in relation to spycops and prosecuting the copper that did for Iain Tomlinson.

    Which I would freely admit is pretty marginal in terms of big picture politics stuff and probably won't do him any harm. Unfortunately.

    I guess what I would like would be someone who will make Boris shit his pants before each PMQs.

    And it absolutely has got to NOT be someone who thinks Labour needs to jettison a commitment to internationalism and anti-racism in order "listen to the working class", if "listen to" is taken to mean "indulge/patronise/pander to", and "working class" is taken to mean "reactionary white boomers in small towns in the north of England who think the NHS is struggling because of too many foreigners and that you can't even say 'happy Christmas' these days in case it upsets a passing Muslim".
