Ed Miliband Defies Successor By Backing Owen Smith

Ed Miliband has defied his successor Jeremy Corbyn by backing Owen Smith in the Labour leadership campaign.

The former Labour leader joins a number of MPs looking to oust Corbyn as leader, although his efforts to do so may be as futile as his efforts in the last general election after new Labour members were given a vote in the leadership contest.

Miliband says his choice to back Smith is based on what the country needs in this “extraordinary time after the European referendum”, adding that we need a leader “who can rise to the challenges of this moment”.
