So far the Labour leadership contest has failed to excite the wider public. (How unlike...)
The greatest point of interest has been this - Liz Kendall's "the country comes first" reply to Andy Burnham.
But, writing in the Evening Standard, Andrew Neather remembers another side of her:
She’s always seemed doggedly party-focused to me, devoting years of her life to pursuing safe Labour seats before landing Leicester West.
Before that, in 1996-97, I worked for Labour: just after I’d started at Millbank, I slagged Tony Blair off to Kendall, who lived near me. The 24-year-old loyalist promptly grassed me up to my new Policy Unit boss.
