Now I know this is the wrong time to post this, and all things being equal it will disappear off the bottom of the home page faster than I can remove my socks. But.. Why is Michael Meacher standing (note to our US friends, standing not running) for the Labour leadership when he hasnât a cat in hellâs chance? He's promised to stand on an Old Labour, left-wing ticket. Only two MPs turned up to his launch, neither of whom promised to vote for him. He has no support, so what it is his real agendum? I am genuinely puzzled.
