Danbo Says No: Jarvis Not Running For Labour Leader

A source close to the ex-Para tells the Mirror he’s out of the race:

“Dan wants to help Labour in any way he can but he needs to put his children first.”

That sound you can hear is 2020 Tory hopefuls breathing a sigh of relief…

UPDATE: Jarvis speaks:

“I’m ready to serve in that rebuilding process as part of the Labour team. But I can’t do that as leader at this moment and I won’t be putting my name forward in the coming leadership contest.

It’s not the right time for my family. My eldest kids had a very tough time when they lost their mum and I don’t want them to lose their dad. I need some space for them, my wife and our youngest child right now, and I wouldn’t have it as leader…

We must never go into an election again giving communities like Carlisle and Pudsey the impression that the Tories were more serious than us about spreading wealth across the country.

We should equally ask how we allowed ourselves to be perceived as not on the side of wealth creators. Never again can we allow ourselves to be painted as having a problem with people eager to work hard, get on and succeed. They should know that Labour will always be their champion.”
