Long-Bailey has won the nomination of the Lexiter Bakers Union.
The Bakers Union also backed Burgon. Twitter has already done the weight related gags.

Anyone familiar with Warley CLP?
A little that's John Spellar's CLP, he's big on the Labour Right.
But they do have a Momentum mouthpiece or two involved.

Looks like it with that Burgon landslide. They are an outlier compared to the other early CLP nominations.

The comrades have organised the CLP nomination meeting in my village (a hotbed of Corbynites) on a Sunday afternoon. Its five miles to the nearest rail station and a lot of members who’d vote against RBL are in the Cambridge suburbs and don’t have cars. They’ve tried these stunts before but car ferrying is being organised.

It'll be interesting to learn what my lot have done: the village had a railway station until 1982 but the location is very rural. I'd be quite happy to put the Panzer to good use here for those seeking lifts to meetings.

The Telegraph;
Keir Starmer is pulling ahead in the Labour leadership race, with a new poll showing he is on course to win 63 per cent of members’ votes.
I could only read the first paragraph. I'm not signing up to read the rest. Anyway, I'll be happy if that comes to fruition. RLB til 2025 is too depressing to contemplate.

They’ve been posting a hatchet job on Starmer from that renowned socialist publication Spiked-Online. If that’s the best these clowns can do they may as well pack up.

Let me guess, "Aaaaah, but who were the REAL villains in the McLibel case?"
Starmer favours inquisitorial courts used by Johnny Foreigners. And Keir getting over-zealous chasing paedophiles at the DPP is going to harm him on the doorsteps. Really? Casting Central couldn’t come up with a better selling point than that. I think I'm right in saying that the Carl Beech debacle didn't even happen on Starmer's watch.

That's a pretty good description of Spiked.

'Yaaa booo silly mewling liberals, we're amazing by virtue of observing you're a bit wet and not really liberals, over and over again'. From what I've read, it's ultimately trapped in the same bubble as that which it despises: short-hand, easy sloganeering by the media, the hyperbole of social media, the knee-jerk opprobrium, the infusion of advertising bullshit into everyday discourse, etc etc. Good not to do those things, sure. But from a thoughtful perspective, only part of the story.

It's not a remarkable thing to say 'some liberals are fucking idiots', really, even as sometimes it needs saying.

This could backfire though.

Usual BTL wibble about 'corporate media', but unfortunately for his pet pillock it's that very 'corporate media' that can influence the hard of thinking.

I think Crabcakes nailed it. The likes of Fenton's anonymous friend don't want to win power, they want to take it. Sadly for them, we're not quite at the three missed meals stage.

If this is accurate from RLB:
Becky Long Bailey was strong on the A-Word: “I think for me we had some fantastic policies, I know because I helped write some of them, and really the message didn't resonate with our voters...
Then on one hand it’s poor - a fantastic policy is not fantastic just because you wrote it - and on the other arrogant, blaming the voters not your appeal (or lack of - and avoiding the elephant in the allotment there of exactly who that lack of appeal was embodied by).

I suspect she didn’t mean it to come over like that in either case. But that lack of skill in public speaking is one reason she would be such a weak leader.
