As the Labour leadership campaign gets underway it looks to be a three and half horse race. Among the candidates who have passed the first hurdle of getting the nominations of 22 MPs and MEPs Keir Starmer leads the way with 68 nominations. The Jeremy Corbyn continuity candidate Rebecca Long-Bailey trails by some distance with 26 nominations – not entirely surprising given Labour MPs were always far more sceptical of Corbyn than the membership.
