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 nominating 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…

Ruth Davidson on working with PM Boris

“I have worked with him when he was Foreign Secretary. I will work with whoever the Prime Minister is. I haven’t had a phone call yet to ask me to run his campaign in Scotland. I am not expecting the call. But I will genuinely judge him on the same criteria as I judge any of the candidates.”
