    I'm not a member but:

    I like Abbott, Balls and Ed Miliband for different reasons.

    If I was able to vote, and had only one vote, it would likely go to the latter.

    I can rank them all I think. Not read up on the different electoral systems in a long time but I would hope I can remember this much.

    Well aye but it's effectively the same thing. In the first round you "vote" for your 1st preference; 2nd round your 2nd preference, and so forth. Thus, knowing that you want Ed Miliband to win the thing you put him as 3rd preference.

    Playing the system, of course.

    No, actually, just he never struck me as the type of character you'd warm too. I used to be a big fan of his, but it was more out of respect than warmth.

    Ah, well, what he stands for and the posts he has already held in the Labour party just makes me confident he is the sort of person who would fight for the things I believe in.

    Angelina, no doubt.

    Anyway, on to policy, would the Labour Party support the banning of private healthcare? (I've asked the socialists the same)

    It's a polarising issue, to be sure, but the question of private healthcare is much more clear cut for me as there are things that should be done privately: cosmetic surgery (as opposed to plastic surgery linked with burns treatment) for example. By transferring this to private clinics the NHS can get on with treating life-threatening illnesses, disease, and triarge without being burdened with the matters of flippancy such as boob jobs.

    I agree completely - and I've actually been drafting a Bill withdrawing cosmetic surgery from the NHS.

    However, if one believes in banning private schools, why not ban private healthcare? Is it not the same principle - equality of opportunity. Many young people won't have the same opportunities as they have to wait longer for their healthcare than their richer counterparts.
