Top Corbynista Sam Tarry Parachuted in to Hull West

As Guido reported yesterday evening, top Corbyn campaign chief and hard-left TSSA union official Sam Tarry is being parachuted in to Hull West:

Guido can reveal the final shortlist of candidates to be interviewed by Labour’s NEC selection panel today. They are:

  • David Prescott: Red Prince and son of John, aide to Jeremy Corbyn. Has the benefit of actually being local and not being a southern carpetbagger.
  • Sam Tarry: Corbyn campaign chief, Momentum man. He’s from Brighton. “Has he ever even been to Hull?” asks a local source.
  • Darren Hale: Local councillor, another Corbynista who gave a pro-Jez speech when he visited Hull.
  • Emma Hardy: Supposed moderate though considered soft and susceptible to Corbynista charms.
  • Sarah Hayward: Moderate, leader of Camden council, southerner. Though she went to Hull Uni.
  • James Anthony: Member of Unison’s National Executive Committee.
  • Josh Newlove: Blairite councillor, works for Mandelson’s think tank Policy Network.

Candidate in place by Friday. The locals would probably be happy with anyone but Tarry…

UPDATE: Emma Hardy wins the selection. Corbynistas Prescott and Tarry defeated…

Quote of the Day

Dominic Raab wrote in his letter of resignation…

“This is, at its heart, a matter of public trust,” he told the PM, concluding: “I cannot reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election… I believe that the regulatory regime proposed for Northern Ireland presents a very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom. I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
