Hand on heart, I do not want to be Labour leader | Jon Cruddas | Comment is free | The Guardian .

I like Jon Cruddas and have got to know him a bit over the last couple of years.

I like what he says here. And I admire him for saying it. His recipe is right. I think he' also right to say he's not the man to lead the party. But it has to listen to him.

His conclusion is spot on:

Labour has a chance to be bold. And at our boldest, we are Britain's best hope for a freer more just country. The next few months will decide whether the party is ready to grasp that chance.

I hope they do.
