Laura Smith, the Labour MP for Crewe and Nantwich, has called for a general strike to help bring down the Conservative government – if there isn’t a general election.
Rebecca Long-Bailey, Shadow Business Secretary, was asked on BBC television this morning if she supported the call for a general strike. She said it wasn’t official party policy, but she “really liked” Laura Smith, and thought she was a “great public speaker”. Long-Bailey is tipped as a leading contender to become party leader after a female leader is made compulsory once Corbyn steps down. Predictably, she was selected from an all-women shortlist.
