I agree with you about Lewis. He seemed to have more going for him, but obviously there was something the party thought made him unsuitable as a leader.From last year's leadership contest, you mean? Pretty much all of them except Jess Phillips, TBH. Lewis was the stand-out candidate in terms of vision and political programme, but he didn't make the ballot. Thornberry's much more relatable. Long Bailey's genuine and her politics reflect the membership and the movement but she seemed easily bullied. Nandy's a tough item whose depressing reactionary Blue Labour pitch was where Starmer's gone anyway in terms of positioning - might as well have had the real article.
