You can't pick a fight with him and win.  You will end up walking away.

He will be unscathed, you will look like an idiot for starting it and not winning. 

 

That's his charm for me.  He won't get rattled, he knows his stuff, he's a brick wall. 

 

Don't forget, the next election isn't about turning people into socialists, it's about turning weak Tories and LD's into Labour voters.  You don't do that by scaring them. 

You are probably spot on but I still can't warm to him. Comes across as very self-serving.

Starmer gets USDAW , which looked like the only available top 5 union for the lesser lights , so Extremely Annoying Phillips and San from the Fat Slags now need 33 CLP's or a mix of CLP's and a few smaller unions. May be a 3 horse-race pretty soon.

Rumblings GMB may not back Nandy now. She could face a struggle to get on as well if that’s true.

Whoever it is, it's going to need to be a two term appointment as unless there's some sort of national breakdown like a recession, I don't see Labour overturning the Tory majority in five years. If the Tories do win the next GE, another Labour leadership battle would be bad for the party.

 

The need to get the right leader this time is absolutely crucial.

Apparently that was enough to get him onto the ballot.

Yes, Barry, I believe any of the top 5 unions reach the full level on their own.

 

The original soundings at the weekend were that Starmer had 2 in his pocket, RLB one , Nandy was expected to get GMB & USDAW were the only one that was unresolved and the last real hope for Thornberry / Phillips.

 

Obviously Sugar Ape's post re GMB potentially ditching Nandy , and USDAW going to Starmer could potentially leave it as a 2-horse race ( Assuming GMB of course don't go for Thornberry or Phillips )

Could see Phillips seeing the writing on the wall fairly early and stepping down to fall behind Starmer.

Rumoured to be pulling out of the race today.


I saw she said this week she was going to stop appearing Prime Ministerial (?!) just to try and win, instead going back to being honest.
 

Getting ahead of not having enough nominations to restate her position as uniquely genuine truth-teller extraordinaire, who can’t with all conscience stay involved given how the leadership race is proceeding, incoming.

Someone described her on Twitter as the primary school bully who moves up to senior school and quickly realises she isn't in Kansas anymore.

You can tell a lot about a candidate by the people who wanted her to win. She would have been a disaster. 

Spot on there!  But they now want RLB to win.

Interesting , if a bit contradictory , musings from the YouGov poll of 1005 Labour members that gave Starmer the 63% lead at the weekend.

 

Corbyn very popular even though Phillips is noted as the highest-rated of the five candidates ?

 

You Gov , You Goving, with the attack on Momentum while ignoring the fact that it is far more popular than Labour First . Progress and LFI in the table provided.
