Do Labour MPs advocate stuffing the ballot box?

I raised an interesting question on twitter. How many votes could an individual theoretically cast in the Labour leadership election. Apparently up to 32 (anyone want to go higher) if they (however unlikely) were an MP a member of various Unions and also a member of all socialist societies.

Iain Lindley has written on the subject here, however I have a very simple question. Will all Labour MPs commit to only voting once in their leadership election? Surely as believers in democracy they don’t think their vote should count more than someone else. Also will all leadership contenders back such a policy to suggest all Labour members only cast one vote in spite of possibly being eligible for more? A fair question?? Surely they don’t think an individual should be allowed to stuff a ballot box?
