Labour Deputy Leadership Contest.
As I am not a supporter of Labour I don't have any great objection to them shooting themselves in the foot. Deputy leader is a meaningless role that puts a millstone around the neck of the leader, nothing positive can be accomplished by the office although a great deal of harm can be done by an elected deputy who takes a different public stance from an annointed leader. Labour's best interests would be served by electing a unfailing yes man, or yes woman, who will agree with anything Gordon Brown says, someone so unprincipled that they will subsume even any pretence at independence. Hazel Blears is the outstanding candidate in my view.
