If the Labour deputy leadership were simply being measured on Facebook performance then it looks like Alan Johnson is storming ahead. Currently Johnson is leading the pack with a massive 200 members in his supporter group, meanwhile languishing far behind in second place is Hilary Benn with just 59 supporters.
Other runners include, in third, Harriet Harman's with 22. Hot on heels in fourth is the still undeclared Hazel Blears outrider team with 15 supporters at the last count. John Crud-Ass doesn't appear to have got on the Facebook bandwagon as yet.
