Doing it again, with brief comments:

1922: Ramsay Mac - the anti-WWI candidate
1935: Attlee, obviously. As if I'd vote for Mandy's grandad or a pre-war George Brown.
1955: Nye, although I quite like Gaitskell in some ways.
1960: Wilson, if mostly for factional reasons
1961: Greenwood, ditto.
1963: Wilson. George Brown as Labour leader...I mean if you think Corbyn is doing a bad job.......
1976: The go-to "look at how there were more heavyweights in the old days of politics!" leadership election. Probably Foot, definitely not Woy.
1980: Shore, then Foot. Quite like Healey though.
1983: Maybe something like 1. Heffer, 2. Shore, 3. Hattersley, 4. Kinnock out of bitterness.
1988: Benn, definitely.
1992: Probably a sympathy vote for the oddball Gould.
1994: Prescott, Beckett, Blair. Quite easy.
2007: Johnny Mac had he been nominated. But I was glad that Blair was finally gone. Meacher actually attempted a run here btw; must be the British equivalent of Gene McCarthy 1992.
2010: Supported Abbott at the time, but in hindsight it would have been 1. Burnham, 2. Balls, 3. E Miliband, 4. Abbott, 5. D Miliband.
2015: Actual vote was 1. Corbyn, 2. Burnham, 3. Cooper, 4. Kendall.
2016: Actual vote went to Corbyn, would rather he'd have stepped aside in favour of Johnny Mac though (but that wasn't really an option).
