Double Danczuk in Commons? Karen Seeks Selection in Bury

Karen Danczuk is seeking selection as a Labour candidate in Bury North, Guido can reveal. The ‘selfie queen’ of politics – who was married to Rochdale MP Simon – submitted an application for the seat last week. A source close to Karen points to her work as a prominent campaigner on child abuse and regular media experience as preparing her for a bigger role in public life:

“Karen connects with people, she’s a poor girl done good, and she’s a local girl. She’s serious about getting selected.” 

Karen was previously a Labour councillor in Rochdale. The first husband and ex-wife combo in parliament?

UPDATE: As many of you have got in touch to point out Gordon Prentice (Pendle, 1992-2010) and Bridget Prentice (Lewisham East, 1992-2010) were married in 1975, split up in 1997 and divorced in 2000.

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
