    Corbyn hasn’t done the detail – why Labour scientists are backing Owen Smith

    Scientists for Labour members have voted overwhelmingly to endorse Owen Smith in the Labour leadership election. Our members voted to back Owen to be the next leader over Jeremy Corbyn by a margin of five to two2, with three-quarters taking part in the ballot.  I believe the landslide result was due to disappointment with Corbyn’s leadership, deep unhappiness over the EU referendum result, and an excitement that a credible alternative is being offered by Smith.  Jeremy’s leadership has disappointed many […]

    Labour’s Corbynsceptics will come together in a series of events in the run-up to annual conference in Liverpool next month. Billed as “moderate meet-ups”, the eight sessions across the country will see supporters of Progress and Labour First – two of the party’s anti-Corbyn groups – discuss issues that are due to be debated at the Labour conference. Among the topics given priority will be the two groups’ desire to defend current Labour policy in favour of Trident renewal and […]
