Thank you very much to everyone for coming back, I was hoping that we would get a really good crowd back and that too many of you haven't just gone to the pub, which I think my dad has done, which I was tempted to do, I tried to ring him but I think he is two pints deep. Is he happy. We had a good debate this morning for the leadership hustings, it was very camaraderie and friendly and lively so the pressure is on guys to play nice. The 40-second rule we brought in in the earlier event seemed to work quite well, so initially for the first questions we want a 40-second answer and I will be hurrying you along when that comes to a close. Then, after a certain number of questions, we will move to a two-minute final summation, which will close the show. So, we have been going back through questions, we tried to vary things up, because this is a different role and tried to focus on people who are very specific about deputy leadership questions. These are the things I have have been told to say, that I have to say. Candidates drew lots half an hour ago to decide which will stand at which podium. The results mean that Angela Rayner will go first, followed by Dawn Butler, Richard Burgeon, Rosena Allin Khan and, Ian Murray. If you could keep on top of that, that would be great, because numbers are not my thing, or just basic logic. So each question will be asked to every candidate, when the candidates come out we will have no open statement and no candidate will be permitted to interrupt or heckle their owe poniesent, but a bit of light banlter is helpful. If you want to dive in and say things that is fine, but keep it nice and friendly. Shall we start? My first question is from Jennifer Corcoran in Southport. In front row, very brave! It's not a stand up gig. What key message from your campaign can I deliver on the door step to inspire our voters old and new. So it's about the key message of what you want to bring to the position that Jennifer can deliver on the doorstep. ANGELA: Thank you for your question, I did visit Southport during the General Election campaign and the key message is utilising every inch of our movement, our fantastic movement, energising and bringing it together to sell what socialism is about, what the Labour movement is about, that is our greatest thing and that is reaching our full potential as a movement and making sure that everyone can do that. I think, actually my role and my back story talks about how we can unify the party to make sure we get behind our leader and we win the next General Election because I can't think we can wait any longer. (APPLAUSE). LIAM: Excellent timekeeping, Dawn, same question to you, what key message from your campaign can be trifr delivered on the door step to inspire voters old and new. DAWN: Whenwe can wait any longer. (APPLAUSE). LIAM: Excellent timekeeping, Dawn, same question to you, what key message from your campaign can be trifr delivered on the door step to inspire voters old and new. DAWN: When I knock on the door what I want people to say is "oh, yes I know what Labour has delivered for us, Labour has delivered locally and a metro mayor or a crime commissioner and Labour will deliver to us from Government." Labour has made my life better, my family's life better, my children and grandchildren's life better. I want people to understand that socialism is about aspiration, it's about making sure you have a solid foundation in your life, that we build your life, we make you better, we are a part of you and that nobody gets left behind. When I knock on the doors that is what I want to hear them say to me. LIAM: Thank you, Dawn. The same question to you, Richard. RICHARD: Thank you very much, Jennifer for that question. I will be on the door step with you as a campaigning deputy leader. I want a people-powered campaign so I want to strengthen our campaign and message by focussing on ten key policies in partnership with the members and the Trade Unions to sell on the door step. I remember when I joined the Labour Party back in the mid 90s being very taken by the way John Prescott used the role of deputy leader as a campaigning role. I see it in the same way, not a leader in waiting, not a mischief leader in waiting but a team player working for all of you to get Labour back into Government. LIAM: Ian, are you going to be a mischief maker. IAN: Certainly not, but I want to speak to Jennifer about how she managed to get the Labour vote up 7% in the last election, because my main message about standing for deputy leader is to go out and stand in the seats we won and lost and the seats we will never win and listen to the public and reflect on what they are telling the Labour movement on what we have to do to get into Government. We have a Conservative majority, it's a disaster, the only way we can transform the country and places like south port is to listen to what the public are telling us, change it and get us back into the Government so that the people of Southport get the Labour Government they deserve. The first stop is to listen to the seats that we won and lost and listen to people like Jennifer who managed to put up the Labour vote up by 7% for Liz Savage in Southport. LIAM: Thank you. Rosena, what about your key message? ROSENA: Thank you very much, Jennifer and thank you everyone for being here today. My key message are of hope and unity. As the daughter of a single mum who had to work three jobs to put food on the table, as a mixed race child, growing up in poverty under Thatcher and Major I was written off. The Labour Party believed in me, I am the embodiment of what can happen when the Labour Party believes you in you, I now work as a doctor in our NHS. I want to knock on doors and say the Labour Party believes in you, our future generations, let's join together, rebuild from the grassroots and rebuild organisational capacity and take the fight to the Tories and show future generations through hope and unity we believe in them too. (APPLAUSE). LIAM: So, this was a very popular question and I am making no further remarks about it. It is how would you support the leader and how would you overcome any differences? That is from Elaine owe Callaghan in Liverpool. We will start one on that one, Dawn. DAWN: Thank you for that. So, look, people talk about unity, but I have walked the walk of unity. It's great that everyone is talking about being united but I have walked that walk, I have served under two Labour Prime Ministers and they don't come around that often, but we need to get us back there again and we need a Labour Government and I have served in the Shadow Cabinet. I will never, ever join a coup, because nobody votes for a a disunited party. It's a united party that wins elections, so don't just talk about unity, let's show unity, let's show it and so I will take us to the finishing line and we will have another Labour Prime Minister. LIAM: Richard, same question to you, how would you go back supporting the lead what if there were differences between the two of you. RICHARD: Well, whoever wins leadership election, whether it's Becky who I am supporting in this campaign, whether it's Emily, Keir, Lisa or Jess, I will be a team player, lacer focussed on working with and for them to deliver a Labour Government. We have to support our elected leader, I was under great pressure to do the wrong thing, which was wrong for the party when people were trying to get rid of our elected leader, I of course refused to go along with that and I am proud I took the position position. The Labour Party has always been a broad coalition of socialists like myself, social Democrats and Trade Unions, it needsgreat pressure to do the wrong thing, which was wrong for the party when people were trying to get rid of our elected leader, I of course refused to go along with that and I am proud I took the position. The Labour Party has always been a broad coalition of socialists like myself, social Democrats and Trade Unions, it needs to remain like that, as Howard Wilson says "a bird needs two wings to fly" and we can fly together, turn around this defeat and get back into Government at the next election. LIAM: Ian, how do you see that role. IAN: Well the role of deputy leader is to support the leader of the party and not only that but the entire Labour movement. I have already pledged as one of my five pledges to be the voice of the Trade Unions, the affiliates and societies that are part of the Labour family and to be their voice in the Shadow Cabinet and to the leader. I also think the role is to organise, organise, organise and get the party into a fit state in the country to take the policies forward and take the views of not just the leader but the entire Labour movement forward. I think there is one thing that is critical in that is to be a critical friend of the leader. In times gone by every single leader of the Labour Party has surrounded themselves with everyone who agrees with them and I think you need to be a critical friend to reflect the voice of the Labour movement and take that forward so we can have a strong leadership team. LIAM: And you, Rosena, in terms of differences and also working together with the leader. ROSENA: The number one role of the deputy leader is to support the leader. I fundamentally believe that and actually I am the only the only deputy leader who hasn't nominated a cand dealt because I will work with anyone. We haven't been as united as we could have been and should have been at leadership level. I have been proud to serve on Jeremy's front benchs but I had to take some tough decisions about Brexit, but I picked up the phone and I am honoured to call him a friend and I said it whats I need to do, will you support me on that. It's always been respectful because the only way to go forward is to unite and walk the walk and not just talk the talk at a leadership level. LIAM: Everyone is sticking nicely to the time frame, also found my dad over there. He is back from the pub. I was keen to make a few of the other questions we selected to the relevant.... I told you I couldn't remember the order of things, sorry, Angela, same question to you, apologies, how do we see the role in terms of working with the leader and potentially ironing out differences? ANGELA: Well, I think you can't be a leader in waiting, you have to be a support to the leader and I made a conscious decision to stand for deputy leader because my strengths are in organising and supporting our leader. Jeremy will tell me I have always been a friend who has not been shy at saying what needs to be said, but you will also now in my four years I have never been anything but pluralist and supporting our party and our movement. So that is why I have received so much support so far and so much nomination and I thank everyone for your support, but I promise you I will be a campaigning deputy leader that will not do anything that takes us away from power and will make sure that we do get that Labour Prime Minister next General Election. LIAM: So as I say, wanted to select some questions that were pertinent to where we were in Liverpool. One of the main issues facing the city at the moment is that there is a desperate need for a new hospital in the Royal Liverpool Hospital that is going to be five years late following the collapse of Carillion, we did a story saying that the overall cost is £1.1 billion now. One question here which is saying that this person's biggest fear is the continued privatisation of the NHS, can you give your view as to how we can stop this and also reverse it. So, we are starting with Richard on this one. RICHARD: I think the kind of campaign that is going on in Liverpool in support of our NHS and in support of the hospital is the kind of campaign rooted in our communities that as deputy leader I would support. I am proud that the Labour Party has a commitment to public ownership, I think we need to further deepen that and when we analyse our devastating election defeat we have to make sure we don't throw out the baby with the bath water. That means no retreat on our commitment to public observe ownership, no retreat from defending our health service from Donald Trump and his counterparty in this country, Boris Johnson, so I salute the campaign and I will support that in any way I can.
