This is the laughometer from today’s Labour Party hustings in Manchester.
As usual, tiny chuckles weren’t recorded.
We maintained our rule that to score, you had to get a proper laugh from a significant portion of the room.
The laughometer was close to breaking point under the strain of the hilarity today. On todays appearance Diane may be making her way to Edinburgh next week.
Diane Abbott – 6
David Miliband – 2
Ed Miliband – 4
Ed Balls – 3
Andy Burnham – 2
The results were taken by an experienced laughometer operator, who knows the difference between a titter and a roar.
