The leadership contest is hotting up now that we have all four candidates – Andy Burnham, Yvette Cooper, Jeremy Corby and Liz Kendall – who will be on the ballot.

But what do you think should happen after one of these four triumphs? Do you think it should be easier for the party to get rid of an underperforming leader? Some have floated the idea of implementing a three year break clause whereby a current leader asks the party whether they still want them to serve in the position. Tell us what you think here.

Following Labour’s catastrophic defeat in Scotland, some figures have called for the party to have a complete rethink of their strategy in this part of the country. This has included suggesting that they set u party independent from Labour in an effort to win back votes from the SNP? Not everyone, however, is happy about this prospect. What do you think?

The government are considering implementing plans to restrict the voting rights of Scottish MPs. This would limit their rights to vote on England-only legislation by  giving English MPs a veto over legislation only affecting England. However Scottish MPs have said that it would create a two tier system. What do you think about this potential change?

Our weekly survey closes at 11am on Tuesday. Tell us what you think here.
