Not to be left behind in furious campaigning to see who is beaten least by Jeremy Corbyn in the last days of the race, Andy Burnham was quick this morning to trump Yvette Cooper. Cooper has increased her former bid for 10,000 migrants to 50,000 - and not to be left behind, Andy Burnham called this lunchtime to increase this to 100,000. Liz Kendall has yet to bid, but is expected to call for a quarter of a million Syrians when she speaks to the press later today.
The only leadership contender not to call for large numbers is, erm, Corbyn. He is also the only candidate standing who voted against Blair's War in 2003 - the event that started the instability in Iraq that has led to the present crisis. Burnham and Cooper voted enthusiastically in favour.
