Owen Smith Rebukes Labour Leadership Debate Audience For Laughing At Scottish Labour Leader Kezia Dugdale

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.”
