Owen Smith says abolish the DWP, but Jeremy Corbyn had already decided to do so! Smith says he would abolish the DWP and create a Ministry of Labour
Owen Smith said today at Orgreave made famous for the battle during the Miners Strike that he grew up in South Wales during the miners' strike. "That's when I came alive politically".
He said "we’ve been a weak opposition, and worse than being a weak opposition, we haven’t laid out in anything like enough detail a credible prospectus for government." The simply fact of the matter is MP's within the Parliamentary Labour Party there exist a systemic
On a personal note as Chairman of Respect For the Unemployed & Benefit Claimants - the son of a Scottish miner who left school the same year as the miners strike in Thatchers Britain & joined my father on the picket line. I knew poverty & deprivation, having to eat out Hillards food dumps prior to Tesco skips to survive. Ever since I have a deep understanding of politics & community solidarity & collective responsibility. An Injury to One is an Injury to All runs through my veins & continues in ethos within the campaigning strategy of Respect for the Unemployed. We have known Jeremy for the last 25 years. We know him, trust him & know that he will help build a better a society thats respects its people (all the people). We the people need 'a Jeremy' in 10 Downing Street.
Power Corrupts And Absolute Power Corrupts AbsolutelyOwen it's very easy to promise so much when seeking great power, we the unemployed, disabled & benefit claimants have witnessed first hand betrayal from both political parties for failed policies. You have been in parliament for six years, in our opinion that is simply not long enough to lead a party based on promises with no track record. On the other hand Jeremy Corbyn Entered the House of Commons on 9 June 1983 before the Miners Strike - with a track record second to none.
It was Jeremy that invited striking miners into the House of Commons gallery in 1985 who were expelled for shouting "Coal not Dole" of which as a teen I remember well.
The miners knew & today's generation are all to aware that nationalisation of industries was not an option, hence unless they voted #brexit "there is no political independence without economic independence"
