There are going to be televised Labour Leadership hustings after all


The dates for the leadership hustings announced are as follows: 

Cardiff: 7pm to 9.30pm Thursday 4 August.

Nottinghamshire: Wednesday 17 August – BBC.

Birmingham: Thursday 18 August.

Glasgow: Thursday 25 August.

London: Thursday 1 September – The Guardian.

On Wednesday the 17th of August, the hustings will be televised by the BBC. All events will be streamed on the Labour party's website, and the Guardian event will be streamed on theirs. 

One televised hustings seems like a disappointment. It's still a lot more than it looked like we'd get last week, and there may be more to come.
