the rumor mill is already in full swing in the Uk after the Labour skrækvalg: Who will replace the much-criticised chairman Jeremy Corbyn?
One of the names that are brought into play, is Helle Thorning-Schimdts husband Stephen Kinnock - and she didn't do anything to silence all the rumors to the ground during an interview with CNN.
Friday was the former prime minister sat in the congregation of the famous CNN host Christiane Amanpour to talk about brexit and Labour's crushing defeat in the elections to Boris Johnson and The Conservatives.
"Anyone who loses so big, have to respect the voters and go," says Helle Thorning-Schmidt to CNN about the Labour-chair Jeremy Corbyn, who on Friday morning reported its departure, but officially still on the record.
It was Amanpour to ask the social democrats, on the Kinnock will stand up to fight for the presidency.
Thorning's reply was undviende - but not dismissive:
"you must ask him about."
Where the Labour party had the worst election result in 85 years, had Kinnock different success. He won a superb victory in the constituency of Aberavon in Wales and regained his place in the house of Commons.
Stephen Kinnock is one of the many Labour-profiles, which, after valgfadæsen has criticized president Jeremy Corbyn.
According to the Kinnock should Labour not have asked the voters a vote on british membership of the EU in the view.
if Kinnock had even wanted to remain in the EU, he has after the vote has been among the Labour politicians who have spoken for brexit implemented - and this can be an advantage in the battle to become Corbyns replacement.
"I don't think Stephen Kinnock to be underestimated," says Gisela Stuart to the Daily Express.
She sat in the house of Commons for the Labour party for 20 years and is a keen supporter of brexit - exactly as many of the Labour voters. Stuart believes, therefore, that Kinnock is trying to get Labour back on track in a time when the party's leadership, in her opinion, has forgotten to take into account ordinary people's concerns.
Peter James Stark, who is the communications adviser and former adviser to the Social democrats in the Danish Parliament and in the European Parliament, think Kinnock is a real bid on the Corbyns replacement.
"I definitely think it is a possibility. He is an outsider, but you must not abandon him," says Peter James Stark, who follows british politics closely, to TV 2.
Stephen Kinnock was in the 2015 election to the european parliament for the first time.Updated Date: 15 December 2019, 08:00
