The competition to overcome watching paint dry as being the most boring experience has been challenged by the contest by the five candidates to become Leader of the Labour Party.
According to insiders one of the Miliband brothers is likely to win, although the voting system - not favoured by Labour for a General Election - means second votes could make all the difference.
'It is far from being a two horse race' Ed Balls declared as he poured scorn on the Coalition record in Government and predicted a hurricane. Weather forecasters are adamant that there will not be a hurricane so we should look out for one.
Diane Abbot as the only woman and only black candidate doesn't really expect to win but she satisfies the politically correct wing of the Labour Party by standing. Andy Burnham could might have been the dark horse if Diane Abbot had not stood.

Have the other David and his side kick Nick anything to worry about? Only if Vince Cable supports one of the candidates.
