Lammy and Sadiq Back Corbyn

Two hours until the noon deadline for Labour leadership nominations, and Jeremy Corbyn is edging closer to the 35 votes he needs to get on the ballot:

Sadiq Khan is also┬ánominating someone he doesn’t think could win Labour an election:

“After a defeat of this scale, the Labour Party needs to have the widest possible debate. I won’t be voting for Jeremy Corbyn and I don’t think he can lead us to election victory in 2020. But I do know that across the Labour family many share Jeremy’s views on a number of matters – I believe these should be heard and tested in a democratic process. That’s why I will be nominating Jeremy, in the hope he makes it onto the ballot.”

Corbyn backers say expect a flurry of late nominations…
