For today’s @IrishTimes politics podcast, I’m joined by @fiachkelly & @Jennifer_Bray to discuss the @labour leadership contest and whether ‘otiose’ (h/t @PatLeahyIT ) is the correct term for the current government formation process.
All the Labour candidates have tacked to the left, but do they really mean it? Here’s my state of play for the Labour leadership contest
Just had an interesting phone call with someone about the Labour leadership. Conclusion was that the Labour party needs to get a proper grip on what this contest is: it's not about recapturing the heart of the party, but about it being a party at all, which it currently isn't
It's nothing short of hypocrisy for the Tory government to claim 16 and 17-year-olds aren’t mature enough to vote in elections, but not apply this rule to its own leadership contest.
As Tory leadership contest heats up, the UK’s most popular political figure is urged to throw his hat into the ring.
It’s an overused word but this leadership contest really is surreal. The contenders who understand Brexit know they can’t tell the truth about it without losing so they’re aping the buffoonery of contenders who don’t understand anything. The only challenge is telling them apart.
BREAKING: Toryleadership contest cancelled after all 11 candidates check into rehab.
I'm on the ballot paper in the Labour Partyleadership contest.
