Voting in the Labour leadership election begins Monday.
Some Labour Party members have taken to social media to post an image of their vote but I am still waiting for my online voting email to arrive.
The time-scale is such that full members are balloted before affiliates and later this week postal votes go out.
That belt and braces approach means that every person entitled to vote should be covered probably this week.
But while I wait for an inbox notification that my voting papers have arrived up pops one from leadership challenger Owen Smith MP.
Calling him a challenger makes it sound like a boxing match but to be fair the Labour Party is in the throes of a huge fight.
So what did Owen or rather his campaign team have to say Monday?
As voting begins this week, we face the most important decision for this generation of Labour supporters.
I received a similar email from London Mayor Sadiq Khan Sunday. It too included buttons to click on and show your voting intention. As always I did not click through.
It is a brief polite email but here is the thing Owen.
I do not believe you.
You do not have the credibility Jeremy Corbyn has.
You may or may not win voters over or you could lose more than you win over.
If you win you may or may not become party leader and remain in post for sometime. Then again you may be a stalking horse; you could be telling tall tales; the plotters may remove Mr Corbyn and then remove you with or without your approval. That could put a right-wing of Labour politician in the frame; Corbyn could be kept off the ballot; we could be back to square one.
Fair enough I doubt that scenario is on the cards but this is the problem Labour supporters and in particular those who support Corbyn have.
Who to trust and who to believe?
Too many Labour MPs have painted ghastly portraits of themselves during this orchestrated coup.
You Owen may be a good guy who at one time may have received my vote but your behaviour during this coup has forever tarnished your reputation for me.
Sadly that is true of others.
It will take the plotters a great deal of time and hard work to win people back.
Additionally your emailed promises offer me nothing new or extra to Jeremy Corbyn's election promises.
Yes you hint or perhaps claim that Corbyn is not electable in a General Election but what makes you think you are?
This party member is a loyal indivdual.
So when my ballot papers arrive I know who will get my vote and it will not be you
All things Corbyn
