The "slanging match" between Andy Burnham and Yvette Cooper

On Channel 4 News this evening reference was made to the "slanging match" between Andy Burnham and Yvette Cooper in the Labour leadership contest:  http://www.channel4.com/news/

Why have relations between the two candidates deteriorated so badly?

Is it possible that they had a secret agreement?

Perhaps that each would urge their supporters to give second preference votes to the other?

Is it possible that Yvette Cooper's team have delivered on that promise, and now learn that the Burnham team have not, and yet they cannot denounce the Burnham team because the deal was squalid and secret and would make everyone look bad if it came out?

The existing Labour party must have been canvassed by now - the only new canvassing is of the last-minute surge of supporters (widely assumed to be pro-Corbyn).

Has Burnham deviousness just scuppered the Cooper and Kendall teams?
