Community union nominates Owen Smith in leadership battle

She believes tens of thousands of new members denied the vote want to see Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn take the party "back to its social democrat, working-class roots".

"Today we have seen how powerful an idea that is, with our policies on ending the gender pay gap, investing in affordable childcare and tackling violence against women and girls being adopted by Labour leadership contender Jeremy Corbyn".

The meeting was organised by local Labour Party members with support from Momentum Teesside and chaired by Fens and Rossmere ward councillor Alan Clark.

"He very plainly can not lead a party and his continued presence as Labour leader makes our ability to build an election winning, social movement, the likes of which was saw in the late 90s and early 00s, harder not easier". People don't want to be blackmailed in that way.

Father-of-two Mr Smith, who has not seen his two daughters for five years, said he is angry with Jeremy Corbyn for his stance on shared parenting.

Donald Trump on Hillary Clinton: 'I don't think she's all there'
Donald Trump also said the United States has to rethink its alliance with nations who don't pay their share of defense costs. Jack Kingston, a Republican from Georgia and adviser to Trump, dismissed the survey in an interview on CNN Friday.

The Pontypridd MP said: "Jeremy, I'm not having that because you know, you know Jeremy, that I wasn't part of any coup in the Labour Party". He is one of the most ambitious career politicians I have met.

Corbyn defended his record, saying, "When we work together we win".

LABOUR paid zero corporation tax a year ago - despite being in surplus by £4.3million - the party's accounts revealed yesterday. "I don't recall that".

Four other unions, the Communication Workers' Union, the construction workers' union UCATT, and the rail unions Aslef and TSSA have backed Mr Corbyn. "I don't think our leadership has been strong enough about stamping it out", Smith said.

On Smith's warning of a Labour split, McDonnell accused him of attempting to blackmail Corbyn voters into supporting his campaign, and dismissed the claim as the "wrong tactic in a leadership election".

Syrian Opposition Says Government Siege Of Aleppo Broken
The Manbij Military Council, a key component of the SDF, said fighting was continuing near the town centre, however. Also on Saturday, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces alliance handed a major defeat to IS in Manbij.

The incumbent leader is expected to outline 10 pledges to mend Britain's "broken" economic model and deliver "richer" lives for all.

A spokesman for the Jeremy for Labour campaign said: "Under Jeremy Corbyn's leadership, hundreds of thousands of people have joined the Labour Party and a large proportion of them have been young".

"We could all be living richer lives in a sustainable, more prosperous and more caring society".

For Labour to really win for working people, it has to be bold.

"We're reaching out to every community in every part of this country", he told the crowd. At the centre is a previously-announced plan for £500bn in public spending via a new national investment bank, to help create a hi-tech and green-based economy.
