Voting’s opened today for Labour members, still over a month before the results though.
It's much too quick, they should look across the pond for inspiration on how it should be done...
'And in tonight's leadership caucuses from the *Dunny-on-the Wold constituency, the winner is... Well, it seems they're still counting the vote. The vote. So let's go back to the studio for another week of analysis and over-paid waffle while we wait for the thrilling non-event of the Great Dunny, Little Dunny, Nether Dunny and Dunny-up-the-Spout primaries on "Somnolent Sunday".'

There's a suggestion that there might actually be an obvious winner by the end of this week with the expectation that around three quarters of voters will have put their vote in by the end of this week. Frankly, the sooner the better. I'm not a Labour voter or supporter but the UK needs an effective opposition and we haven't had that for too long.
Corbyn’s final PMQs today, a subdued and surprisingly constructive occasion due to current events. Arguably no better ending for his tenure as Labour leader could have been imagined than his advisors being evicted from the Commons press gallery (because they broke the no photos rule).
Following Mr Starmer's recent shadow cabinet appointments, I am hoping that this will be a new start for Labour. We have desperately needed an intelligent and strong opposition for a long time. It will of course remain to be seen whether the new team will be able to become a government-in-waiting.
