She looks incredibly attractive on that platform. Did you know she was the partner of Greg Davies from the Inbetweeners?
Yeah! What a lass.

Such bland answers about personal qualities.

Kendall and Corbyn showing a clear divide on the economy/deficit and defending their beliefs. Burnham playing to the left, Cooper playing to the center.

Burnham being a bit marginalized with Cooper taking the ground I thought he would.

He gave the best economic answer though.

Corbyn was about perfect for the socialist wing, did very well even if I don't think I agreed with a single thing.

Kendall's not the best speaker but was unashamedly Blairite.

Cooper and Burnham pandered and basically agreed with audience members.

If he wins the election I might just go to Zimbabwe; that economy will probably be better run

In fairness dead air would be better than Grimshaw so that's not saying much. Besides, radio two is all about Ken Bruce.

I miss my radio show :moon:
Bruce is the real weak link in R2's daytime lineup, with Steve Wright not great either. Evans, Vine and Mayo are all excellent.

And to be honest, I'm only center right, and pretty liberal. I don't actually like Churchill or Thatcher very much *gasps*, more of a Major/Blair man myself.
What can I say? Labour moving to the right, Tories to the left. We'll be one blobby mass soon!

Labour Leader's debate in 15 minutes. Anyone backing a particular candidate?
Kendall, although I'm not watching.

Going to have to stomach my pride and join Labour as a supporter or whatever it is to back Corbyn.

Wrong - Popmaster is amazing and Chris Evans is annoying.

Cheers! I'm good thanks, how are you? Congratulations on becoming Speaker by the way, I don't think I ever said! You're doing a great job
Good thanks. Thank you for the kind words! It certainly is an interesting learning curve being Speaker.

We're starting to see some mobilisation of Conservative members who will be joining Labour for £3 in order to vote for him. That should tell you something.

Conservative leadership election only gives party members the vote, whereas Labour operates under a One Member One Vote system that includes affiliated members. Given that the cost of standard Tory membership is £25, it'll be a lot more expensive for Labour to sabotage the leadership election than it is for the Tories (£3 is nothing ) to do it to Labour. If Corbyn has the grassroots support that he's said to have, the necessary numbers for the Tories will be even lower.

£25? There's a surprise

He might win the first round, but after that I would imagine transfers wouldn't favour him, and should he win he may get to experience the annual confidence votes and find himself out of a job should he perform as badly as I fear.

You say that, but most parents probably can't tell you exactly what it is they are supposed to dislike. With Corbyn, people know he's a radical.

I support Gove as the next leader as things stand.

Well, I'm among the thousands of Tories considering funding labour for the possibility to brutally murder them with Corbyn. It's not against party rules, the way labour define it, and I wouldn't be surprised if the party approve, especially if it works.

The Tories can VERY easily win the next election for less than half a million.

£5 for students

Conference is also extortionate, but only 25 for students, more than covered by all the free alcohol, that's the main reason we go.
