John McDonnell - Will he get the nominations?

The Labour party now has lists of which Labour MP's have nominated which candidates for the leadership of the Labour party.

So far Gordon Brown has 282, to John McDonnell's 27, some 18 short of the 45 he actually needs.

Gordon Brown has made it clear that he will not lend any nominees to McDonnell. There are 352 Labour MP's with 43 left to nominate of which McDonnell needs 42%.

I can't see him doing it. My £20 is safe!

The BBC has this.

Mike, no Andrea is your man for that!

Anonymous, From my perspective you are missing the point. There will be no show trial because Gordon Brown will not risk it.
