they Competed until the end and the five managed to overcome the first phase in the race to succeed Jeremy Corbyn at the front of the labour that has concluded this Monday. Four women (Rebecca Long-Bailey, Lisa Nandy, Jess Phillips and Emily Thornberry) and a man, Keir Starmer, have obtained each the support of more than 22 deputies. Now comes the most delicate phase: to convince the half a million that affiliates have a project to overcome the historic defeat of last December 12.
in The same way that its major internal critical blamed, above all, the personality of Corbyn for the failure of election of December, the beginning of the battle for his succession seem to be more focused on the character, popularity, and origins of the candidates in their general vision for socialism british in the TWENTY-first century. None dares to raise a comprehensive review of the corbynismo in this first phase, much less to resurrect the flag of europeanism when the general consensus points to that was the warmth with respect to the Brexit that sank the party in the “wall of red” from the north and centre of England.

Keir Starmer, of 57 years and 89 guarantees, has been the winner of the first phase of the contest. But, as happened with the primary conservative, is not the same to convince the members of the parliamentary group that the militants of basis. This lawyer defender of human rights was a headache for Corbyn, and forced him to the end to accept the possibility of a second referendum on the exit of the Uk from the EU. Today it rescues the photos in which he embraced the veteran leader of the left-wing and defends the “radical” (in the words of Corbyn) of the last electoral programme, labour.
Rebecca Long-Bailey, 40 years of age and with 33 endorsements, is the favorite of the corbynistas, and supposed to bet more clear for business as usual in the forms and the message. He said that he would give a 10 to the leadership of his up to now head.
The deputy Jess Phillips, of 38 years, and so extreme in their proposals as fresh and in the media, could be the surprise of this competition. In the first phase Phillips has obtained 23 guarantees. Their humble origins, their determination in parliament, her feminist approaches and her clarity of ideas will enable, but deployed to Corbyn a animosity that we might not forgive the bases. “In the nineties, the labour needed to form a coalition between the middle class and working class. Today the problem is the opposite. The more working class has an electoral district, the less popular it is the labour,” he wrote recently in The Observer.
Emily Thornberry, —other lawyer of the north of London, according to his critics, of 59 years, he managed to at the last minute 23 guarantees, the same that Long-Bailey, and remained in the race. But it has garnered too many internal enemies as for hope of success.
Lisa Nandy, of 40 years and with 31 guarantees, was the only contender that was always against a second referendum on the Brexit.
The race will be extended until 4 April.Updated Date: 14 January 2020, 09:00
