If Corbyn isn't on the ballot then it is proof a large section of the PLP has forgotten what democracy actually is #LabourLeadership

Watch out for a whole new level of coup with the way this Labour NEC meeting has been called tomorrow. Updates to follow. #LabourLeadership

@David_Cameron We now must have an election.We the people don't want an unelected PM deciding our future. #ToryLeadership #LabourLeadership

I'd love to see a General Election called so we can punish quislings at Westmjnster but it won't happen. This is the establishment winning

Wind of change

The world of UK politics has been in a state of flux over the last few weeks and today is no different.

Current Home Secretary Theresa May is on course to be the next prime minister after Andrea Leadsom pulled from the race to be Conservative Party leader.

Both Teresa May* and Leadsom are trending at the moment and here is the current reaction. *With a spelling correction thrown in for good measure.

Theresa May

So Theresa May is new Prime Minister & trending on Twitter as "Teresa May" if the UK public cannot spell her name right what hope is there

I'm just waiting for Bobby Ewing, to get out the shower, to tell me this is a dream. #Leadsom #Eagle

Beginning to think that social media & 4G aren't fast enough to keep up with modern politics #Brexit #Leadsom #Omnishambles

Wonder in the park

After a weekend of sport, it's time for music to take over.

Stevie Wonder performed his classic Songs In The Key Of Life album in full at London's BST festival on Sunday.

Referring to recent outbreaks of violence, the veteran US singer asked the audience to "choose love over hate... kindness over meanness, hope over no hope at all."

Over 17,000 tweets have been posted so far. Here's a selection.

Stevie Wonder

In lift + Louis Walsh 1am. 'good night?' Me 'superb, I saw Stevie Wonder' LW - 'I'm here to do X Factor' Me 'Practically the same thing!' 😉

Stevie Wonder was truly phenomenal every song has meaning every melody speaks to you feel blessed to have seen him

My mum saw Stevie Wonder last night and described it as a spiritual and healing experience. Sounds very superstitious if you ask me

listen to Songs In The Key Of Life by Stevie Wonder. A fitting score for this time of uncertainty, and a message of hope we urgently need
