Today is the final day for people to register to vote in the Labour leadership contest.
After Angela Eagle pulled out the race (and offered her to support to Owen Smith), it's now an all-male contest between him and current leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Honoured to get the opportunity to make my case to Labour members and supporters for a radical, credible vision for Labour's future

The deadline to pay the £25 in order to secure a say in the leadership of the party is 5pm.
A last-minute surge of supporters signing up is expected in the final few hours before the electorate is finalised.
I'm supporting Owen Smith for Labour leader. Register before 5pm tmrw so you can vote for him. Here's why you should https://t.co/27npu1Qzf3

People (mainly Corbynites) are urging each other to pay the money even if they're skint/stubborn/don't think it's worth it.

to new (not New) Labour members, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pay £25 and register by 5pm today. It's so important we show them Corbyn is worth it

But not everyone's convinced it's right still.
The labour party wonders why its lost the working class... just look at the £25 democracy tax theyve rattled new members with.

I'm so mad I have to pay £25 to vote in the Labour election this is so annoyin and undemocratic!!!!!

Would genuinely pay £25 to vote in Labour leadership election if they presented an alternative; as it stands Corbyn will probably win anyway
