Response to Ironing Man (Reply #3)

Fri May 8, 2015, 01:13 AM

4. NOOOOOOOO!

Too much of a Blairite, and lacks experience. Jarvis would be a singularly bad choice.

Ed Balls is too associated with the failings of Brown and Miliband. The British media would have a field day attacking him and he wouldn't be able to turn things around.

Chukka Umuna doesn't stand out for me, and the less said about Tristan Hunt and Rachel Reeves the better.

The name that stands out for me is Andy Burnham. He's been an effective opposition spokesman. The trouble is, his Blairite record in office has to count against him.
