Labour is in crisis, but Owen offers us the chance not only to reunite, but to be a strong opposition again.
Owen Smith is the unifying candidate in this leadership election. Owen Smith is our candidate to be the next Labour Prime minister.
I’m voting for Owen Smith as Labour leader.
Labour is in crisis, but Owen offers us the chance not only to reunite, but to be a strong opposition again. Post Brexit Britain is a frightening place.
Incompetent right wing Tories are daily appointed to positions of power whilst Labour’s voice is weak and ridiculed. Owen is the alternative to Theresa May. He shares the values and principles of Jeremy Corbyn, but he has the aptitude and ability to connect with the electorate.
Let’s not kid ourselves, winning safe by-elections and a lack-lustre showing in local elections does not make us an electoral force. As MP for Pontypridd Owen knows only too well the UKIP threat that is flourishing in our Labour heartlands.
Owen Smith won’t lose another Scotland on his watch!
And let’s exam his pedigree. He is from socialist South Wales, provincial not metro-centric. His father Dai is a chronicler of the struggle of the Welsh miners and biographer of Aneurin Bevin. Former MP for Aberavon, Hywel Francis (son of a Communist miner’s leader) was a mentor in Owen’s early political career.
Kim Howells, former Labour minister and ‘84 strike activisit says of Owen "He's always been intelligent, courageous, and he needs that now because this is going to be a battle for Labour's future”. Owen truly is a product of Labour’s left. He wants a socialist party in government.
Owen has experience beyond politics. His time as a Radio 4 journalist gives him a valuable insight into how to communicate our message to the electorate. He knows how pharmaceutical companies can be brought to deliver free quality health care under the leadership of a strong NHS.
What is the point of socialist dreams that will never become government policy under the present leadership? He will be able to make the ambitions of a socialist party relevant to the lives of the general public and therefore electable.
Owen will not just preach to our army of members, he seeks to create the millions of Labour voters we need.
Both Angela Eagle and Jeremy Corbyn recognise Owen’s motivation is the future of our party. They both respect his mandate.
For a united Labour Party championing socialist policies with a realistic chance of helping those in need, vote for Owen Smith. http://www.owen2016.com/news
