Owen Smith said:
We’ve been keeping the banks afloat in this country. It’s time to start keeping the people afloat in this country.
Facts Owen Smith might want kept quiet:
- The Deficit: Owen Smith said: “There have to be tough decisions on tax, spending and pay, but without jobs and growth we won’t get the deficit down.”
- Work Capacity Assessments: Owen Smith said that Labour could not pledge to scrap the WCA because this would make Labour appear weak on benefits in the eyes of the media and compromise Labour’s general-election chances.
