    Well it took the Guard 5 mins to go back to old school.

    The new Labour leader has to be a woman, that'll do it.
    Somehow...magically

    Well they've never had one while the Tories have had two but much more important probably two of the best are women.

    Nothing wrong with BAME but much wrong with Lammy. The next leader of the Labour party should be the best person for the job. Not a tick in the box albeit a woman, black aisan, ethinic minority that supports x or y sky fairy ffs....

    Blair2 is the only option.

    Hence why the Labour Party are dead.

    Hard to compete with oligarchism with a veneer of nationalism.

    Both ways look fairly bad for Labour at the moment.

    So can we all finalky agree Sadiq is a self promoting waste of space.

    Everything he promised four years ago has epically failed.

    House building...fuck all
    Crossrail...3 years and counting late.
    Rail fares...epic fail
    Make London safer....mega epic fail.

    I'll give him making an attempt at air pollution.

    I can get behind that if you can do the same for BoJo and Trump too.

    There's little difference between them other than skin colour - brown, white, orange.

    No..Trump has come through with most of his election promises...the wall has been blocked over and over again, but they have actually started it recently.
    Black and Hispanic employment at record levels..economy still climbing, significantly lowered taxes....strangely succesful at keeping out of wars.. many trade deals reworked or in progress.

    Oh and turned the left on itself.

    Amazing how you know so much about a place you loathe.

    Infact, I think you should be arrested for self hate.

    Crossrail is a success compared to similar projects around the world; the cost overrun is only 5%, compared to over 40% on average around the world (and it wouldn't even be 5% against the original cost estimate; the government cut the cost after the project started). Yes its a bit late, but that's absolutely unsurprising given it was digging through several thousand years of history; you're going to dig up the odd undocumented plague pit here and there.

    As for fares, doesn't TFL have a fares freeze at the moment? Don't remember any other London mayor doing that.

    The crime thing has been discussed here before; the London government is subsidising against massive and sustained police cuts by the Tories, without Khan injecting money in the police would have been cut in London by 30% over the last decade. He's kept it to "only" 21%.

    House building... not just London is it?

    Are any of them non self serving cunts? (Honest question, I don't know all of them and those I do know are self serving)

    I mean as an actual leader...not head bubble.

    I like the fact she was the only one on the ballot, so looking at the numbers:

    40,000 Members
    7395 Participated
    70.4% Supported RLB as leader.
    52.1% Supported AR as deputy.

    Surely that means even though just over a fifth of the members replied and she was the only nominee she still only got 70.4%, I mean normally when you use such a process in dictatorships you get 95%+ :p

    Yeh - I saw that ballot paper. I'm surprised they didn't change the 'No' option to say 'No I am a Tory class-traitor who will be first against the wall'.

    That's because Momentum are scarier to wealthy people than Britain First.

    More likely because for the majority of the country they represent a cancer inside Labour which will make them unelectable for decades to come.
