The Tories are putting this audio clip about as a helpful contribution to the Miliband debate. Recorded speaking at a CLASS conference fringe event, Shadow Welsh Secretary Owen Smith twists the knife:

“We’ve got to be much bolder. That is the bottom line. We’ve got to be much bolder. Tim’s [Roache – GMB officer] pointed out the movement’s dying – he’s absolutely right. To be honest, I said it to him before he got up to speak. Unless we are much, much more vigorous, then we will not attract a new generation of people to fight in this country and if we don’t do that then we are lost.”

Quote of the Day

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
