    To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them.

    Watching the video just now. Sarwar comes over as glib neoliberal electoral cancer trained in the Blair school of bullshitting.

    If he wins it will be a disaster.

    Gotta be honest though, Leonard doesn't particularly come over well either. Corbyn has this naturalness to him that made him stand out from the professional class, but Leonard appears to be part of it even if he has more left-wing politics.

    Leonard has won the Scottish Labour leadership! https://www.theguardian.com/politics...-labour-leader

    This means there's another pro-Corbyn member on Labour's ruling body, the NEC, and as they're also likely to win the three member-elected NEC positions he will have an outright majority, enabling him to accelerate that purging of Blairite elements from the party bureaucracy and speed up democratization efforts.

    Any thoughts on this Demo?

    The result was:

    R. Leonard: 56.7%
    A. Sarwar: 43.3%

    It will depend a lot on whether the MSPs let him lead him of course. Hopefully if nothing else this will force the SNP further left though.

    Ignore the bullshit frame by the neoliberal journalist that expanding democracy is an evil Stalinist plot: Jeremy Corbyn Tightens Grip On Labour's NEC After Move To Neuter Party's Student Wing

    By the only polling company that called the general election right: Labour open up eight-point lead over Conservatives in latest opinion poll

    Meanwhile Blairites are saying Labour is doomed and they should be much higher. Is it any wonder that their stranglehold over the party bureaucracy is finally being broken? Every week there's a new story of Blairites losing their grip on the party machinery. By next year's conference they'll be almost fully purged.
