The vote for who leads the Labour Party to victory at the next election has begun. The decision of the Labour Party to allow votes from newly signed up supporters, many of whom have turned out to be opponents of the Labour Party at the last election including members of Left Unity, the Greens and many others on the far-left of British politics may skewer the result.
It is vital that Labour puts forward a leader that can win a general election.
It's no good having so called "principles" if they can never be put into practise. You have a choice:
Achieve something or achieve nothing!
The country cannot afford yet another Tory victory.
Stand on street corners selling newspapers and shouting at passers by has not and will never achieve anything.
Already the survival of trade unions is at stake, as is the future of the NHS, welfare, our rights, our homes and our futures.
Vote Liz Kendall for Leader:
"We must build a Britain where everyone earns enough to have a good life and prosperity is shared by the many, not the few.”
Liz Kendall 29 July 2015
Please use all your votes and transfer your preferences to Yvette Cooper or Andy Burnham.
Caroline Flint for Deputy Leader
"The Labour party exists to win elections to improve lives and make the world a better place. But if the shock of our crushing election defeat is beginning to fade, the scale of the challenge facing us is only just beginning to dawn. It is no exaggeration to say that we now face a fight for the very survival of the Labour party. It is a fight in which I wish to play a part, and why I am standing to be Labour’s next deputy leader."
Vote Liz Kendall for Leader, Caroline Flint for Deputy
