Corbyn Miles Ahead, Eagle and Smith Crash and Burn

Jeremy Corbyn is more popular than ever with Labour members and is set to comfortably retain the leadership, while Angela Eagle and particularly Owen Smith have crashed and burned, according to a new YouGov poll. 54% of Labour members eligible to vote say Jez will be their first preference, way ahead of nearest challenger Eagle, who is second on 21%. Smith, who Tom Watson and the ‘old Right’ Labour establishment want as the sole candidate, has bombed with the membership. A pitiful 15% would back him. In a one v one run-off Corbyn would beat either candidate by over 20 points. If you were Angela or Owen looking at these numbers, would you even want to be on the ballot?

Former Governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King…

“There are arguments for remaining in the EU and there are arguments for leaving the EU. But there is no case whatever for giving up the benefits of remaining without obtaining the benefits of leaving.”
