Owen Smith told off Labour members for laughing at the party’s Scottish leader, Kezia Dugdale, during Thursday evening’s leadership debate.
Smith went head-to-head with Jeremy Corbyn at the debate in Glasgow. Dugdale has endorsed Smith and said Corbyn can not win the next general election.
Smith told the audience in Glasgow: “I think Kezia is doing a brilliant job, I think she is fantastic.”
However his comment was met with mockery. “I am really worried that I am hearing a Labour audience laughing and jeering at the leader of Scottish Labour,” he admonished the crowd.
“If we are worried about entryism, I presume you still support the leader of the Scottish Labour Party? Because I do. I think she is doing a great job.”
