Michael Meacher to fight Brown

It is good news that Michael Meacher has confirmed that he will fight Gordon Brown for the Labour leadership. Although John McDonnell was always going to ensure that there would be a contest, at least now there is something of a middleweight, if not a heavyweight, to stop the thing being all but a coronation.


  1. He still needs the nominations and its far from certain he can get them.

  2. It's perhaps good news for the Lib Dems but not for the socialist faction inside the Labour. Meacher is standing in the interest of new labour as a spoiler candidate against John. Good blog though. Not your fault you're a Lib Dem. No-ones perfect.

  3. Thank you for your comments, Jonathan. I am great admirer of your campaign against racism. Couldn't you equally say that John is standing as a spoiler against Michael?
