UKIP Seeking to Take Advantage of “Oily” Smith

UKIP are rolling their tanks onto Labour’s lawn after Owen Smith said he would try to block Brexit if he becomes leader. Yesterday “Oily” Smith went viral after he pledged a second referendum and admitted it was “tempting” not to trigger Article 50. UKIP leadership frontrunner Steven Woolfe tells Guido such a move would turn the north purple:

“Owen Smith’s disdain for his own voters is frankly disgraceful. My message to the millions who have been left behind by Labour’s sneering and condescending political class is simple – UKIP will speak for you. We are your new home.”

Smith’s rhetoric might appeal to Europhiles in the PLP, but 70% of Labour MPs represent seats which voted to Leave. This graph from Professor Matthew Goodwin shows the Leave vote in Labour areas:

A new, northern, working class UKIP leader versus an oily, Surrey-dwelling Europhile Labour leader? It’s obvious who UKIP want to win the Labour leadership – Owen Smith is the kamikaze candidate…

Quote of the Day

Philip Hammond uses a trip to Berlin to mock the Foreign Secretary:

“A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece. Wise words with some applicability to the Brexit negotiations although I try to discourage talk of “cake” amongst my colleagues.”
