To me, Andy Burnham looks like someone who's just come second in a Jason Manford lookalike contest and is about to burst into tears.

He does always have a defeated look about him. I think that's important.

Decided to vote for Corbyn. Fuck it! We'll do it live! Once more unto the breach dear friends.

1. Flint 2. Creasey for the DL. I'm a bit pissed off Watson is apparently a cert. Those two would make a much better contrast with Corbyn and I prefer them to Watson anyway.

For me Watson is far too much of a loose cannon.

Just interested in your reasons for saying that. Why do you think that?

Stella can be a bit strident which is double edged sword for that role. Still an impressive candidate and a good choice. I went for Ben Bradshaw as second choice because of his electoral organising skills and a good understanding of the seats Labour has to win.

For better or worse, I've gone Cooper then Corbyn for leader and Watson then Creasy for deputy. I do hope we get it right.

I have finally received the email allowing me to vote. Suddenly it's become serious.
