corbyn vs smith

Sky News will host a debate between the two Labour Party leadership contenders: Jeremy Corbyn and Owen Smith. This will be preceded by a one-hour documentary about the current state of the party.

The debate starts at 9pm on September 14th. It will be hosted by Faisal Islam in front of a studio audience of 200 Labour members and voters and will be the final hustings before the leader of the party is announced in Liverpool on September 24th.

It will be preceded by a one-hour documentary about the current state of the party. This will be hosted by Sky News' senior political correspondent Jason Farrell, and will profile both Corbyn and Smith, with exclusive interviews with Labour MPs plus former party leader Neil Kinnock.

Esme Wren, head of politics at Sky News said: "This final debate will be the last chance for both potential leaders to outline their vision for a party in crisis." She added that the documentary preceding it will "allow Sky News viewers to really understand what issues the party is dealing with as political turmoil engulfs it.

"The debate, headed by Faisal, will promise to be lively, noisy and I hope a chance for Labour party members to ask the potential leaders face to face how they are going to deal with some of the biggest political issues of our time."
