Late news just in

A mannequin dummy finished fourth in the Labour leadership election on Saturday night:

For the real mannequin effect, you have to click on the pic to enlarge it.

I guess that does explain why the mannequin in the Liverpool defence these past ten plus years supported him in the leadership election.

Andy B's office was just around the corner from our place in Manchester. I think he failed not because he looks like a mannequin, but because he looks remarkably like the young Paul Whitehouse and makes us feel sad that the Fast Show isn't on any more.
PS, where the office was is now inaccesible to mere mortals as they are filming Captain America there. Apparently N4 Manchester looks more like Brooklyn and the Lower East Side than Brooklyn and the Lower East Side do. Plus I guess Samuel L can get a better coffee at Drip.

The Lower East Side is all scrubbed up now, but there are parts of Brooklyn which still look like stills from a seventies movie.

I don't think Burnham necessarily looks like a mannequin 24/7 but that picture is rather unfortunate. You can guess that the pic wasn't from one of his official press releases.

He's actually too good looking to be leader of the Labour Party. Some members have long memories and they haven't gotten over the betrayal of Ramsay Mac.

Just imagine if that hair was grey and he was sat in a pub. "Leader of the Labour party? Hardest game in the world, that. Did it for 10 years man and boy. Took a cracking chub down the canal last saturday."
