    As it is clear that there will be three candidates for Labour Leader who are you supporting or voting for? The labour leadership was triggered after 172 MPs said they had no confidence of Jeremy Corbyn as leader. Angela Eagle announced her challenge and not soon after Owen Smith also challenged the leader. It is speculated that the challenger with the highest amount of nominations from MPs will face Jeremy, as agreed with both candidates, but who are you hoping for to win?

    I thought there was a gentleman's agreement that only one candidate would stand against Jezza?

    Very uninspiring three. Glad eagle has gone though.

    Corbyn is inept I think, I don't think I even like him much from stories I've seen coming out. Look at Debbonnaire (Bristol West) and her scathing attack this week.

    I like what smith is standing for personally. I don't trust him though, I feel he is a career politician through and through. Think he's best for the party currently though realistically. Uninspiring for that reason.

    Smith is nothing spectacular but he seems fairly decent, good speaker, fairly charismatic.

    Don't expect him to win an election but I do think he might just stop the party from totally evaporating.
