1704, PH: We'll leave it there, although we'll have more reaction on Coffee House shortly.
1702, PH: I've already forgotten Miliband's final line, although it involved the phrase "new generation". Not a great speech, but some turnaround for him over the course of the contest.
1658, PH: So far, the speech is just a series of thank-yous. Harman is the latest on the list: "the best deputy anyone could hope for".
1656, PH: The Tories tweet that there were "cheers" in CCHQ when the result was announced.
1655, PH: Big cheers as Miliband pays tribute to Ed Balls' campaigning skills.
1652, PH: Miliband begins by thanking the party. He says that the "first thing" he needs to do is "unite the party".
1650, PH: It was the unions what won it for Ed. He got the union vote by 60-40.
ED MILIBAND IS THE NEW LABOUR LEADER
1650, PH: FINAL ROUND RESULTS:
David Miliband: 49.4 percent
1649, PH: THIRD ROUND RESULTS:
Ed Balls: 16 percent
(Ed Balls out)
1648, PH: SECOND ROUND RESULTS:
(Andy Burnham out)
Diane Abbott: 7.4 percent (of the total vote)
(Diane Abbot out)
1643, PH: ...although David now looks a bit brighter than Ed.
1642, PH: All of them have grins plastered across their faces. No tell-tale body language yet.
1639, JF: Harman just put David first, Ed second in her thanks to the candidates
1637, PH: Now we're getting the serious stuff from Harman. She says Labour needs to repel the idea that "a recession that started in America was somehow our fault".
1636, PH: A jokey start from Harman. She grins about a "Harman Institute for Political Correctness."
1635, PH: Ok, so here's Harman now - and the result is only a few minutes away.
1632, PH: Another video. Then Harman. What fun.
1630, PH: Now we're getting the gospel according to Gordon: "markets with morals," etc.
1628, PH: A few veiled attacks on the Blairites and their attitudes towards MiliE, I think. Brown says that he will do nothing but support whoever is made the next leader.
1628, PH: Now he's saying that he "takes complete responsibility" for Labour's election defeat - and that the party must move on from the blame gain.
1627, PH: Brown describes Labour as "the only progressive party in the country".
1626, JF: Brown pays tribute to the Freedom of Information act which Blair panned in A Journey.
1623, PH: Brown on unusually snappy form. Now he's jokingly thanking the press. It's still quite grim, though.
1619, PH: Oh look, it's Gordon stepping out onto the stage - with Sarah in tow. He gets warm applause from the audience. Just bizarre. Brown kicks off saying that he "will always be Labour".
1613, PH: Ray Collins points out that Brown "cancelled the debts" of developing countries. He adds that the "greatest debt" we owe Brown is for his actions during the financial crisis. I can't help but think of another debt: the national debt.
1611, PH: Ray Collins describes Gordon Brown as "one of our greatest politicians". Whoops and applause from the audience.
1610, JF: Video ends with "Don't let anybody say we didn't make a difference".
1609, PH: A heavy dose of the old religion for the Manchester crowd. A video has just played showing party achievements. Now, Ray Collins, general secretary of the Labour party, saying that the result will pick "the next Prime Minister".
1604, PH: Oh dear. Gordon Brown is set to address the crowd for about ten minutes before the result is announced. Just what the new leader would want...
1558. JF: One other thing to watch is who comes top of the non-Miliband section. If Balls comes third, it’ll cement the boost that his campaign has given to his reputation in the party. But if he doesn’t, the result could undo some of the progress he’s made in the last few weeks. Also worth noting that Balls is doing the Politics Show on the BBC: will he lay out a hard economic position or wait to see which way leader Miliband wants to tack?
1542, JF: We are now into the over-interpreting body language stage of proceedings. One DM backer who may know the result looking chipper. But as someone just pointed out to me,
that's just their normal countenance.
1531, PH: Worth checking out Adam Boulton's schedule of events. One thing to note is that the five candidates should already know the result at 1600. They will have to maintain poker faces when they step out onto the stage just after 1630.
1530, PH: Stay tuned for live coverage of the Labour leadership result from now onwards. We're expecting to hear the actual outcome around 1640 - but there should be plenty to report in the meantime.
