Soundbites from BULS members on leadership:
Ken Livingstone wants to push through money-making and environmental reforms that local councils across the country could benefit from.
I don`t live in London, so I don`t care as long as the mayor is Labour. (thanks Ben)
Oona King is a faux labour, über Blairite, war supporting opportunist. And being a Blairite IS a bad thing because he`s a war criminal and didn`t stay true to Labour`s values.
King is the Labour of the future, Ken is the past. Blair never lost an election, and you can`t get anywhere on ideology alone (see: the 1980s). Also let`s wait for the report to conclude on whether or not he`s a criminal.
Blair had a time and place, but now the public want a fresh, more ideological Labour. Go Ed Miliband!
