I got an email this week saying I’d better watch out the same doesn’t happen to me as to Jo Cox. It’s pretty awful.It's appalling that Mr Smith has had death threats and I can't condemn such vile actions by obviously sick Individuals strongly enough.
“Jeremy Corbyn shrugs his shoulders and says he also has death threats. That’s not good enough. He’s not doing anywhere near enough to stop this happening.”
But to make such a statement and then appear to apparently dismiss climes that Mr Corbyn has had similar death threats is low for Owen Smith .
To Nr Corbyn credit Jeremy Corbyn has not linked the threats against him as coming from Mr Smiths supporters. So it is really for Owen Smith to linl Mr Corbyn in ant way ti the threats made against himself.
Jeremy Corbyn is not responsible for nutters who may not even be a member of the Labour party ;
Does Mr Smith know where the email came from and has he reported it to the Police ? He has a duty himself to see that these threats are dealt with and an apparent death threat should be dealt with by the law immediately.
According to the Wasting Mule
Owen Smith was born 46 years ago in the Lancashire resort of Morecambe but grew up in Pontypridd.Which is odd as the Wikipedia page on him says that
As a lad he enjoyed playing rugby at Coedylan Primary and careering through the streets with his pals.
The town is also the constituency he has represented as its MP since 2010.
He was brought up in Barry, Wales, and attended Barry Comprehensive School.The Mule goes on to say
Mr Smith is the son of the South Wales miners’ official historian Dai Smith, and his family was Labour to its boots.
His grandad Jack became a miner at 13, lost his job in the 1930s Depression and later went back down the pits again.
He retired just as the 1980s strike was about to begin, when there were 13 pits round Pontypridd. Now there are none.
Remembering that period, Mr Smith said:
“Margaret Thatcher’s efforts to smash the miners felt like an effort to smash communities.“The strike was a disaster, but it was bloody heroic - people standing up for themselves.”Maybe Owen Smith should look at his Dad's book on the Fed and the list of Pit closures under the "Labour" Government of 1966-70 and 1974-79
If Mr Smith at 46 can evoke his own youthful memorise then this writer approaching 63 can also remember that
that was that . What Thatcher did was arguably carry on the process started by Harold Wilson
Mich more drastically of course but the Miners and the Working Class in their entirety have been betrayed by the Labour Party Time and Time Agana
I winder if Mr Smith will be showing "The Blue Scar" which he got on a school trip with his
