Another Useful Owen Smith BBC Connection

pienaar

Owen Smith is a bit of a BBC luvvie having worked there as a producer for ten years, and his handy connections to Auntie don’t end there. Oily’s campaign team includes Olivia Pienaar, a Labour aide who is organising his support from within parliament. Olivia is by all accounts a talented young staffer who works as a bag-carrier to Rachel Reeves. However her appointment ruffled some feathers among Labour moderates who whined that she only got the gig because her dad is BBC deputy political editor John Pienaar. Guido dreads to think what the Corbynistas will say when they find out this family link between the Beeb and the Smith campaign. Don’t tell The Canary or we’ll never hear the end of it…
