The Telegraph reports:
Left-winger Jeremy Corbyn is on track to top the ballot in the Labourleadership contest, according to a poll.
Research by YouGov for The Times has found the backbench MP is the first preference for 43 per cent of party supporters – way ahead of bookies’ favourite Andy Burnham on 26 per cent.
Shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper was on 20 per cent and Liz Kendall just 11 per cent.
The wisdom of having the members elect the leader!
This will replace Michael Foot’s manifesto as the longest suicide note in history.
The problem UK Labour has is that it has lost so many members, that those remaining are hard core activists who are in no way representative of the actual people who vote Labour.
