On the bright side I'm looking forward to Madam Shadow Secretary starring Diane Abbott as Tea Leoni
OT: This is possibly my favourite Corbyn-related story of this entire campaign.

Sadiq Khan's not so bad and at the very least it's not 3 white men who've won the nomination.
Also, dare I say it, ... kinda hot.
Why does the colour of their skin matter?
In a city as ethnically diverse as London, it's good to have at least one candidate who reflects that.
Meanwhile, my old school chum (and also kind of hot) Marvin Rees has been chosen as Labour candidate for mayor here. He narrowly lost to Independent George Ferguson last time on a very low turnout. But Ferguson is really quite hated here now, so I think Rees has a better chance this time around. I don't think any other party has declared candidate yet.
Will Tooting be the first by-election of this parliament?
It's looking like a Corbyn win in the first round
Exciting times AHOY
The Moopy result was 57% Corbyn in the first round. Let's see how accurate that is.
I hope poor dear ANDY doesn't get 0% of the vote
We need have a new topic for LONDON MAYORAL ELECTION.
Old Mags Beckett looking like she's chewing a wasp. Nothing new there then.
I was just thinking she suits her hair up
I'm also hoping for Stella deputy, but that seems unlikely.
How could you not vote for this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXXJ3NrjplY
It's a HARRIET HARMAN HOORAY!
Are Kezia and Carwyn there?
It seems like the deputy is going to be Tom Watson. I don't really like him, but I'm excited that he might drop some HOT PAEDO EXPOSES with his parlimentary privelges.
Sadiq has a loud clap.
I have subtitles on for some reason - Sadiq just thanked Andy, Jeremy, Eva and Liz.
It's like the Sheffield rally all over again.
I wish the camera would stop wobbling.
Oh don't read out all the numbers. Just announce the name with a DRAMATIC ELONGATED PAUSE like on all good TV SHOWS
COME ON STELLA
Ben Bradshaw, you are no longer in the running to be Labour's next deputy leader. You must return to Exeter immediately.

Well I certainly won't be giving him a standing ovation.
Why do they never straighten their ties?
GET HIM OFF
I wonder if that was a hint that Angela Eagle will be shadow Chancellor.
Go FUCK YOURSELF TOM WATSON AND YOUR BAKERS UNION LOVE IN.
Fucking idiots - who has done his make-up and chose this lighting?
YAY for a SUPER FUCKING INSULAR SPEECH and a SUPER FUCKING INSULAR RESULT :daf:
I should have guessed. As the old saying goes, Caroline Flint is a horrible horrible person who should not be trusted.
Will Penny be making a speech at this?
