“Blair was a ‘winner’ and these fools think that trick can be repeated again and that is why they are going to pick him.”

Sir Keir is considered to be the “safe” Labour leader vote and according to bookmakers is expected to win the race.

Both candidates Lisa Nandy and Jess Philipps have argued voters should make the brave choice and vote for them for change.

While speaking at a rally in Wigan Lisa Nandy argued now was not the time for the party to play it safe.

She added the Labour Party “deserves to die” if it refuses to change from its previous course.

During her speech, the MP also reflected on the “devastating” election failure in December and how she believes she is the right candidate to turn it around for the party.

She said: “After this bruising few years in the Labour movement and after what was a shattering, devastating electoral defeat in which we lost good friends and colleagues who deserved so much better.

“People around the country lost good Labour MPs and they deserved so much better, I say to you that despite all of that, now is not the time to steady the ship and play it safe.

“Because if we do not change course a Labour movement we will die and we will deserve to.

“So now is the moment to up our game and recover our sense of ambition.”
