Why I Shall Be Voting for Yvette Cooper

This was not an immediate choice. As readers of this blog will probably know, I was initially enamoured by the thought of Mary Creagh as leader, although she lacked the aquired nominations.
What I like about Yvette Cooper is that she is aware of the immense challenge that Labour faces, and yet can appeal to all sections of the UK, both Left and Right, and remain consistent! Yvette also has cabinet experience, experience of life outside politics, and has the necessary combination of charm and toughness needed. Rachel has put it far more eloquently than me in this blog piece of hers
I am still unsure of whom to back as Deputy, but I do feel that if we stick to Yvette, or at least the arguments I have just made, then we are on the long road back
