Owen Smith’s Lies and Right-Wing Policies

Mike last week also posted a piece disproving Owen Smith’s claim that he was not part of the Chickencoup trying to overthrow Jeremy Corbyn. Mike points out that Smith resigned with all the others plotting against Corbyn, that he voted ‘No Confidence’ in him the following week, and is standing against Corbyn for the leadership of the Labour party now. He also reports that John Mann states that he was approached to back Smith as leader six months ago.

See Mike’s article at: http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2016/07/14/dont-believe-owen-smiths-claim-that-he-wasnt-part-of-the-chickencoup/

Mike’s also put up a graphic showing just how right-wing Smith’s policies are:


He supported the Iraq invasion, the privatisation of the NHS, the Private Finance Initiative and the academisation of our schools.

In other words, he’s a bog-standard Blairite privatiser like his fellow contender, Angela Eagle, who should have no place in any Socialist party.
