    It’s not that they haven’t ‘declared’ or that they’re ‘undecided’ it’s that they haven’t ‘nominated’.

  2. Editor says:


    No, this is a list of those MPs who have neither nominated a candidate officially nor declared their support for any of the candidates.

  3. Rose Clarke says:

    Thank you. Can we also have (appended) “declared for but have not nominated” since that further group is potentially relevant for other candidates as well as those they are supporting.

  4. RightToBeMediocreToo says:

    And will they put a woman on the ballot paper – lets hope they are not more worried about their parliamentary careers (poor dears) than giving us a wider choice.

  5. Derek Bunce says:

    I suspect we will see quite a flurry of activity tonight after the PLP meeting. I just hope they widen the debate to include the other nominees. What’s the point in supporting candidates already nominated?

  6. LutonPete says:

    OK… but Keith Vaz has nominated Diane Abbott but is listed on your list (scores on the doors) under David Miliband…
