Oona King Quits Politics For Silicon Valley

Oona King has ended her 25 year career in politics to work for YouTube in Silicon Valley, citing Jeremy Corbyn as one of the reasons behind her decision to leave Westminster. At a send off with Labour MPs last night, the Baroness was asked if the current state of the Labour leadership had made it easier for her to go:

“Yes, to an extent. I joined Labour because I wanted Britain to have a Labour prime minister. Until we change our leader I don’t think that’s a possibility. Anyone who believes in democracy knows you need a strong opposition. It’s desperately sad, not just for Labour, but for the country.”

She says the move to San Francisco is “an amazing opportunity to go where the most exciting ideas are coming from”. Well they ain’t coming from Jez or Owen…
