    My first preferences (i.e. my votes on principles) will go to Diane Abbott, my second prefences (i.e. whom I hope will win) will go to Ed Miliband. I say votes as I, in keeping with many Labour activists, have more than one.

    I answered it in the post. Principles. As someone on the Labour Left-wing, my political principles most closely match those of Abbott.

    Oh sorry I was expecting more than a one word justification. So you don't mind supporting someone on principle when they lack principle themselves?

    She has principles even if those on the Right despise them. Although I do wonder why you're quite so interested in my views when the other Labourites seem to be flocking to David Miliband which may give you a better story as to why they desire a continuation of New Labour codswollop.

    My personal view is that the Pope can either pay for his own visit or **** off back to Rome. The British State should not be giving preferential treatment to religious leaders of any denomination.

    speaking as an atheist and someone who is strongly thinking about joining the NSS:

    I think the Pope should not be granted a state visit, I dont think he is recognised as a head of state even.

    if he wants to come here, he or his institution or whatever can pay for it IN FULL, no public money wasted on him
