Oh dear, not a good start.
There's only a week or so until we'll all be receiving our ballot papers!
I can barely contain myself.
Remember if you're a member of a Trade Union or any other socialist society - you can vote for Hazel more than once!
Whatever happened to that old fashioned concept of one man one vote. Oh, sorry, I forgot. This is the Labour Party we're talking about.
A list of affiliated socialist societies can be found here.
How helpful. Move along now.
I thought you might be interested in this Times article which details Hazel's route to the Cabinet Table. As I am sure you are all aware, Hazel Blears has placed her working-class origins at the heart of her campaign.
Er, yes. Since she waxes lyrical about her bus driver brother at every opportunity...
Hazel was also on Newsnight last night debating alongside the other Deputy Leadership candidates.
Damn, missed it.
It was a very heated debate and Hazel gave a strong performance as usual.
Natch. But not as strong as Alan Johnson from what I hear...
She stressed her belief that the Deputy leader should be a campaigner in chief for the party, as well as a voice for the grassroots at cabinet level.
But not Deputy Prime Minister, eh?
View the debate here Don't forget to vote for Hazel in the online poll!!!
How could we?!
Best wishes,LynneI feel positively tired after that. Well done Lynne!
