Emily Thornberry has made an urgent plea for nominations as she faces the possibility of being knocked out of the race to become Labour’s next leader.
The shadow foreign secretary made a lengthy appeal to party members on Sunday, arguing that she “raises the game” of the other candidates and asking twice for members to “give me a chance” and “get on and nominate me”.
Emily seems to be a leading light of the NVP (Not Very Popular) wing of the party so her chances appear to be less than wafer thin. Yet to my mind she could probably stuff Labour further down the plughole of political history and she could do it in an entertaining way. Come on Emily!
