Supporters have until 5pm to secure a vote in the Labour leadership contest


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.

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.

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

But not everyone's convinced it's right still.

Only a few hours to go now.
