Labour's deputy leadership debate

And an impressive debate it is, with weighty contributions on both sides.

Here is Andy Burnham making a nuanced case for Prescott to continue in office:
"I feel very strongly that John Prescott has done an excellent job for this government and he has been an excellent deputy prime minister. He has my full support in the job."
Some, however, have put much thought into whom they should support in Prescott's place:
David Kidney, MP for Stafford, reported that he would back “whoever Gordon [Brown] wants”.
