deputy dawg

24 Jun

It’s the big day. The Deputy Leadership of the Labour Party is announced today. Most of the blogosphere have come out for Cruddas, and he’s fought an excellent online campaign, but this blog, being an awkward so-and-so, backed Peter Hain.

So what do I think?

Johnson and Benn are favourites, but I think Harman is the dark-horse…

    Peter Watt, the party’s general secretary, will reveal which of the six candidates won the contest to replace John Prescott, at a special Labour party conference in Manchester at around 2.30pm.

    Well, the Hain team were approached (as you know). They didn’t grasp the chance to have a coordinated presence on the blogosphere, so we’ll see how they get on.I’d still like to see Hain win, though. Labour needs an internationalist alongside Brown.

    Not sure, because it´s really a role about enthusing the party and growing the membership rather than a government role – for this, mabye Johnson would be strongest, perhaps Hain – can´t see anyone getting excited by Harriet Harman who´s played the “Gordon´s pal” card too many times.

    I’m not a fan of Harman either. It’s was just a feeling.
