Jeremy Corbyn's first wife backs rival for Labour leadership


"The main charge against Jeremy Corbyn is not just that his strategy is undesirable because it makes the party unelectable".

GRASS ROOTS: Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn leaves his home in London on Wednesday, the last day of the Labour Party vote.

Labour could be permanently locked out of power if Jeremy Corbyn remains party leader, Alastair Campbell has said.

"That is only half the story".

"Stop obsessing about the party issues and devote your considerable talent and experience to the one thing that really matters - the fast-approaching catastrophe of Brexit", pleaded commentator Polly Toynbee in The Guardian, a newspaper read by many Labour supporters.

Opponents of Corbyn did celebrate securing a narrow majority on Labour's National Executive Committee with the new reserved seats for the Scottish and Welsh Labour parties.

Mr Smith said he entered the race to be leader because he wanted "to see a Labour government again" as he warned of the "untold damage" that could be done by the Conservative administration's "hard right agenda".

"Nationalisation cannot be the answer to everything; anti-austerity speeches cannot explain everything; corporate taxation cannot pay for everything".

"It doesn't add up".

Miliband also used the article to criticise the current state of the Labour Party, which, he said, had not been further from power since the 1930s.

Chief Executive Officer John Stumpf also sent an e-mail to customers on Wednesday apologizing for the actions. Tolstedt received a pay raise in March, after getting more than $9 million in cash and stock past year .

"I think the ability to unite the party and to have a longer term post-Brexit vision, I think that's something that's been missing", she said.

Mr Corbyn is expected to be re-elected as Labour leader when the results are announced on Saturday.

On Mr Corbyn's foreign policy, he said: "The half-hearted message about Europe is a betrayal of millions of working people".

In a statement following the close of polls, Mr Corbyn said: 'As far as I am concerned, the slate will be wiped clean this weekend.

But he has promised MPs who have disagreed with him that he will "wipe the slate clean" after the divisions of the summer.

Jeremy Corbyn has already pledged to "reach out" to Labour MPs if he is re-elected as leader.

Ms Smeeth, the MP for Stoke-on-Trent North, fled the launch of Labour's anti-Semitism report earlier this year after one of Mr Corbyn's supporters accused her of colluding with the right-wing press.

Many Labour MPs resigned from the shadow cabinet in June in protest at Corbyn's leadership, arguing that he performed weakly in the failed referendum campaign to keep Britain in the EU.

However, challenger Mr Smith, former shadow work and pensions secretary, has said a victory for Mr Corbyn would only divide the party.

"All Labour party members and MPs have a responsibility to work within the democracy of our party and respect the leadership of whoever is elected".
