We've got another election. ...the shortlists are in for the Oscars. But we're going to talk about the Labour leadership. What should we call these? The Jeremies? The Jeremies. Let's call them the Jeremies. Excellent. And we've got all our major players here to help explain what's going on. And of course, until April - don't get too excited, folks - because until April, Jeremy himself remains leader of the opposition. But there are lots of people vying to succeed him and to be deputy leader of the Labour party, which is also its own elected position with its own mandate. So we've got Jeremy benignly watching over it. Yes, absolutely. Let's put him up there. We'll put him up here, watching benignly from the allotment. And down here, this sort of large, shadowy figure of Len McCluskey, head of Unite, the union. Has been incredibly powerful as a backer of the Corbyn regime in the Labour party. So he's here because he obviously wants to retain this giant influence. He's got a lot to lose, hasn't he? Will he be able to? And Jeremy Corbyn's office was stuffed full of McCluskey allies. He had Karie Murphy. He had Andrew Murray. He had Jenny Formby as the party general secretary, and Seumas Milne as well. So he's probably got as much of an empire to lose as Jeremy Corbyn. Absolutely. We've learned who's in the running, who's got through the initial stage of being nominated by the MPs and MEPs. And so far, Len McCluskey's organisation has not yet declared who it's officially backing, but we think that it will be Rebecca Long-Bailey, who is the Corbynite left candidate. She's been desperately trying to say she's not the continuity Corbyn candidate. What's Barry Gardiner doing here? Barry Gardiner... look. We were cutting out all the faces. At the point where we were cutting out the faces, Barry Gardiner was thinking about standing. He didn't make it. There will be no Gardiner's question time, sadly. Say bye bye, Barry. Rebecca Long-Bailey, shadow business secretary. Very, very close to Jeremy Corbyn. But she's not out in front. No. When this contest began, when it was clear that Jeremy Corbyn lost the election, the left of the party, the Corbynites, needed a flag-waver. Rebecca Long-Bailey had been in place for a long time as their next-generation candidate, a protege of John McDonnell. She was the one they were all pinning their hopes on. But it did feel like it's come a bit too soon for her. She's only been in the Labour party for 10 years. Only been in parliament for five. She's perfectly able, but she is still learning the way, and she hasn't fizzed out of the blocks, which means, therefore, that the front-runner in the polls so far is Keir Starmer, who is the shadow Brexit secretary, the man who led the Remain argument within the Labour party. The fact that he is the front-runner may not be entirely coincidental to the fact that all of the Corbynite left is saying what they need is somebody who's not from London, not a man, and not a Remainer. So you could see that in a run-off between these two, those criteria would favour one candidate. They would. They would. They would. But I think we should just emphasise quite how far out in front Keir Starmer is at the moment. When you look at the nominations from the... You were specifically told not to make this prep sheet visible. God, I'm a reporter. You are defying the producers. I've got a notebook. What do you want me to do? Keir Starmer has got 89 nominations from the parliamentarian. It's 102 isn't it? Yeah, but it's plus the MEPs as well, remember? Rebecca Long-Bailey has 33. So they are the two front-runners. But you can see the scale of the challenge if the leader of the opposition was voted on just by the parliamentary party. But of course, it isn't. And of course, that is roughly the level of nominations that Jeremy Corbyn got when he stood. He only just squeaked over the line. Most of the MPs were against him. So support from the MPs themselves is certainly no guarantee of victory. Although, as you were saying, the only poll that's been conducted... have I got to this poll too early? Yeah. As you were saying...- Park it. Park it. Lisa Nandy. Park the poll, because I want to talk about Lisa Nandy. He's my personal favourite. I know we're completely unbiased, but you'll like her very much. And also, Jess Phillips got through. Let's clear the deputy leadership candidate. Yeah. Let's get the deputies out of the way. Leadership candidate's down. Len. I'm putting you on the floor for a minute, Len. Don't take it personally. Clive didn't make it, either. Clive. No, but talk about Clive, because you liked him. I like him, personally. I think he's interesting and clever. He's a former soldier. He could have been an interesting candidate for the Labour party, but he's fighting for a lot of the same left space that Rebecca Long-Bailey and, to some extent, Lisa Nandy were fighting for in that Corbynite, soft Corbynite place, and he just didn't make it. So I'm afraid he... Bye, Clive. Bye, Barry Gardiner. Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye. Out. Now, Lisa Nandy. She got 31, which is not bad if you consider that Rebecca Long-Bailey, who's the official left standard bearer, as you said... for Lisa Nandy to get 31 and to be safely through is quite good. Jess Phillips and Emily Thornberry. They just made it through. 23. 23 apiece. ...each. And in fact, even on the morning of the day the nominations closed, Emily Thornberry looked like she might not make it. So that's quite a victory for her. So if we ranked them in MP order, it goes like that, doesn't it? We've got Keir Starmer seen as, possibly, quite sober, prime ministerial, and attempting to say, let's put factionalism behind us. I've got people in my campaign from both the left and the right of the party. Let's put the divisions behind us.
