Labour leadership: Phillips and Nandy secure nominations”

The party has confirmed three other candidates have reached the number of MPs and MPs required to pass the first round of the Labor leadership competition.

Ms Phillips now has 15 backers before Monday's deadline.

Shadow business secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey, the favourite of the left, and the backbenchers Lisa Nandy and Jess Phillips have also passed the threshold.

With a significant numbers of MPs yet to decide who to back, Ms Thornberry said at the weekend she was "fairly confident" of making it but Mr Lewis admitted getting the numbers was "hard".

"I had those conversations around the shadow cabinet table".

The Labour leadership frontrunner vowed personally to take charge of the fight to stamp out anti-Semitism in the Labour Party if he wins the race to succeed Jeremy Corbyn.

Sir Keir stretched his lead over the course of 24 hours by securing 59 signatories - up from 41 on Wednesday.

Shadow worldwide trade secretary Barry Gardiner has also confirmed he is "considering" a late bid for the Labour leadership.

Shadow worldwide trade secretary Barry Gardiner has confirmed he is "considering" a late bid for the Labour leadership.

"I am now clear that at this late stage I can not secure sufficient nominations to proceed to the next round", he said in a statement.

As of Friday afternoon, Starmer led the way with 63 nominations, according to the Labour Party website.

The two frontbenchers have until 2.30pm on Monday to secure the 22 nominations from Labour MPs and MEPs they need to go forward to the next stage of the contest.

Early front-runner Sir Keir has already been backed for leader by Unison, the country's largest trade union.

Sir Keir would not be drawn into personal criticism of Mr Corbyn, although he said that it was right that he was now stepping down after Labour's "devastating" general election defeat.

Referencing to the decision to expel former spin doctor to Tony Blair, Alastair Campbell, for supporting the Liberal Democrats at the European elections, Sir Keir added: "It seemed to me that if you have been chucked out of the Labour Party for supporting another political party, you should be chucked out for being anti-Semitic".

"I am not going to get into ranking Jeremy Corbyn out of 10".

It gave him no more than two out of ten points for combating anti-Semitism, but top marks for his ability to inspire the labor movement.

"Losing an election is probably the most important thing by which you would measure a leader and obviously we lost very, very badly", she told Sky News.

"On that basis, I wouldn't give him anything out of 10. What else could I do?"
