Meacher 'to declare leadership run'

Newsflash: Reclaim Labour is tonight reporting that Michael Meacher will formally declare his candidacy for the Labour leadership tomorrow.

If confirmed, this would be a disastrous development for both McDonnell supporters and the left as a whole. Old Nine Homes is certain to pick up enough MPs to make it impossible for McDonnell even to get on the ballot paper. Kiss the campaign goodbye, comrades.

We all know Brown is going to get the job anyway. It's just that now we won't even have the tactical opportunities arising from a token hard left challenge.

I reckon the devious fingerprints of Socialist Action are all over this one. Bastards.
