Owen Smith is once again embroiled in a sexism row.
In an interview with The Mirror, the MP for Pontypridd referenced his younger days when he took his A-levels at a school with an incredibly high ratio of boys to girls.
Smith, 46, joked: “Yes, 1,200 boys, three girls and I pulled Liz. So I must have something going on.
“That must be leadership.”
The remark has not gone down well in light of recent comments he has made about women.
