Field: I Am Considering Standing Down

Frank Field has told BBC News he is going to consider standing down as an MP altogether, after moving to sit as an independent over the anti-semitism, intolerance, nastiness, and intimidation in the Labour Party.

“Over the next few days that is clearly a question that I will have to think about… I will be in Birkenhead, people will be talking to me, coming up to me in the street to see whether they want me to have a by-election or not.”

If he does go, Momentum will have their first scalp. It won’t be the last…

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.”
