How courageous of you to post such allegations anonymously. Let me guess, you'll be a Blairite?

Thank you John for stnding. Whilst I don't like you lots, as a pluralist, I appreciate the importance of labour representing a wide variety of views.

Who were you thinking of voting for, Adele (obviously assuming your favourite candidate runs)?

Erm my favoured candidate would be sum1 slightly to the left of Brown like John Denham.

I will vote for Brown if he shows me some kind of evidence that it won't just be business as usual.

John Denham's to the left of Brown? I presume you mean because of his stance on the war?

I read that as Jim Denham to start with.

Jim for leader!

Would John Denham encourage people back into the Party though? Whatever John McD polls in the end, his campaign could well revive the Labour Party's flagging membership and level of debate.

It may even encourage trade unionists to take a more active role again.

Good luck to him.

Yes, good luck to McDonnell I think he will get people back in the party. He more leftie than myself but as trade unionists will get a vote, he should do ok.
