    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.

    The Moopy result was 57% Corbyn in the first round. Let's see how accurate that is.

    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.

    Ben Bradshaw, you are no longer in the running to be Labour's next deputy leader. You must return to Exeter immediately.

    I should have guessed. As the old saying goes, Caroline Flint is a horrible horrible person who should not be trusted.
