    The bar is described as 20,000 competing for work that might just occupy 10,000 and with most work done by around 4,000. I've worked alongside enough solicitors and barristers to know that, outside the big practices and flashy sets doing planning etc it's no easy living.

    Whilst I agree that a Labour Party leadership contest might be a good idea, why do think that it will start soon?

    Len McCluskey seems to have a lot to say for himself. Should we look for a safe seat for him?
    And dragging Seamus Milne into the daylight of public opinion might be interesting, too.

    Edit: McCluskey not McClusky

    Emily Thornberry starting to put distance between herself and the current leadership. Firstly by coming out clearly in support of Remain after the local elections, now by criticising the party for attacking whistleblowers. Not a good move for somebody trying to curry favour with the boss so maybe she's looking to the future?
