In this week’s New Statesman: Pakistan special

William Dalrymple: The military and the mullahs | Ed Miliband interview | John Pilger: Why we must d


This week's New Statesman is a special issue devoted to the world's most dangerous country -- Pakistan. In our lead essay, William Dalrymple looks at how the country's history of nurturing jihadis as a means of survival is beginning to backfire.

Elsewhere, Fatima Bhutto denounces Pakistan's political elite for abandoning the nation in its hour of need and Samira Shackle reports from Bradford on the uncertain future facing the city's Mirpuri community.

Also, don't miss a revealing interview with Imran Khan and an exclusive short story from Aamer Hussein.

In British politics, the Labour leadership candidate Ed Miliband tells Jason Cowley and Mehdi Hasan that he won't be defined by the right-wing press and reveals, for the first time, that he would never work with Nick Clegg. Meanwhile, ahead of this weekend's Australian election, the Labour MP Caroline Flint asks why Britain has no Julia Gillard of its own.

All this, plus John Pilger on why we must defend WikiLeaks, David Blanchflower on the growing risk of a double-dip recession and Maurice Glasman on how the Tories stole Labour's language.

Which CLPs are nominating who in the 2016 Labour leadership contest?

The race now moves onto supporting nominations from constituency Labour parties: who will emerge the strongest?

Jeremy Corbyn, the sitting Labour leader, has been challenged by Owen Smith, the MP for Pontypridd. Now that both are on the ballot, constituency Labour parties (CLPs) can give supporting nominations. Although they have no direct consequence on the race, they provide an early indication of how the candidates are doing in the country at large. While CLP meetings are suspended for the duration of the contest, they can meet to plan campaign sessions, prepare for by-elections, and to issue supporting nominations. 

Scottish local parties are organised around Holyrood constituencies, not Westminster constituencies. Some Westminster parties are amalgamated - where they have nominated as a bloc, we have counted them as their seperate constituencies, with the exception of Northern Ireland, where Labour does not stand candidates. To avoid confusion, constitutencies with dual language names are listed in square [] brackets. If the constituency party nominated in last year's leadership race, that preference is indicated in italics.  In addition, we have listed the endorsements of trade unions and other affliates alongside the candidates' names.
