The more I see of Smith the less I like him. I can see nothing to suggest that the reasonably leftish tone he's currently taking is anything more than expediency to catch the prevailing mood of the party. I want to see a government based on social justice and that is simply not going to happen if the Labour Party is led by a sexist xenophobe privatisation lobbyist. The PLP's immediate and complete refusal to work with Corbyn is far more to blame for Labour's current problems than Corbyn's weaknesses. Yes I'd like to see Corbyn take a stronger line on the EU but I think Corbyn has a better chance of scuppering the worst excesses of Brexitism by strongly challenging the detail than Smith does by taking an all-or-nothing approach.
