Nominations for the leadership of the Labour Party close at lunchtime. Labour MP Hazel Blears and Estelle Morris, former Labour Secretary of State, discuss the different candidates' prospects.
Estelle Morris criticises that "for a lot of other very able colleagues it takes a lot longer" to get to a position to stand for party leadership if at all.
Hazel Blears believes we are "far too much dependent on patronage in politics".
