Newsnight Deputy Leadership Debate

If only they had used solid lecturns, then Hazel Blears could have stood on a box or something. As it was she looked like Wee Jimmie Krankie peering over a sweet counter.

The whole debate can be seen on the Newsnight site but here are the responses from the six candidates to the first question Paxman asked:

"Is there any one of you who would say, knowing what you know now, if you'd known it then, who would have voted against the war?"

For me at any rate, there were only two credible candidates left after these answers.
