Labour leadership: quick quiz

Can you guess which candidates have smoked cannabis, or who is always late?

This week's New Statesman (out today) features exclusive interviews with all five Labour leadership candidates.

As well as the main interviews, we asked each candidate to fill out a short questionnaire. See if you can guess who said what:

  • Which candidates admitted to smoking cannabis?
  • Who says they would have been an actor if not a politician?
  • Who is always late?
  • Who says they can't tell jokes?
  • Who says their most prized possession is a special gift from Gordon Brown?
