Labour is in trouble – no matter who they pick as their leader.

The Labour party leadership campaign sees four unique individuals jostling for the leadership position. Things have already begun to heat up with Keir Starmer seemingly covering his flank from Rebecca Long-Bailey by skewing ‘further left’ on his policy pledges during the most recent hustings in Cardiff.
