Owen Smith To Fight For Labour Leadership

"They want Labour fighting the Tories, not among themselves".

He will join fellow MP Angela Eagle in trying to wrest the party leadership from the veteran socialist, who has refused to quit despite a major rebellion by his MPs.

Morning Star Online said Corbyn received a rapturous welcome from a crowd of more than 150,000 at the event, demanding he stays on as party leader.

During a long meeting on Tuesday night, the party's National Executive Committee (NEC) decided in a secret ballot that Corbyn, who comes from the party's left, has the right to appear on a ballot and defend his leadership if challenged.

"If Corbyn wins, he will face the prospect of being a lame duck opposition leader - a man who is unlikely to be effective given that he has few friends or allies in Westminster", Klaas said.

Michael Foster, a former parliamentary candidate, is lodging an application with the High Court in a bid to overturn the ruling made by Labour's governing body. "If anyone anybody is engaging in any form of abuse and they say they're in the name of Jeremy Corbyn, they're not". We are now looking forward to the leadership contest.

The letter was circulated to all the Labour members on the authority by councillor Patrick Kitterick who was looking to muster support for the party leader.

"The north branch have a vote this Friday".

"But I hope and I expect it will be me".

"There seems to be growing support for Jeremy Corbyn".

"But I think a lot of people I know are now saying to themselves, 'It wasn't the right decision.' A lot of people are angry that they were quite clearly misled by the Brexit campaign". But I am still a bit anxious about his ability to unite the parliamentary party together.

Announcing his leadership campaign on Wednesday, Mr Smith said Labour needed someone "radical and credible" in charge.

In an interview with Politics Home, Mr Flynn said: "You wonder if we've passed the tipping point".

Labour MP and leadership hopeful Owen Smith was caught on camera telling the female leader of the Welsh nationalists that she was only invited on TV because of her gender.

"This is a moment of deep peril for Labour, if we carry on as we are the party I love will end up in a disastrous spilt".

Respondents were more likely to believe that Mrs May would make a better Prime Minister than David Cameron, by 36% to 21%, while more than half (52%) said she would make a good premier in general.

He vowed: "I will never split the Labour Party". "And I am determined to win it".

The poll was conducted before former shadow work and pensions secretary Owen Smith joined the leadership race.

East Leeds Labour MP Richard Burgon, praised for his staunch support of Mr Corbyn, said to cheers: "The Establishment is coming out in force and is going into overdrive".
