Labour Replacing Jared O’Mara With All-Women Shortlist Selection

The Labour Party has as of today begun the process of selecting a new candidate for Nick Clegg’s old seat of Sheffield Hallam, following former Women and Equalities Select Committee member Jared O’Mara’s resignation from the party in July.

Following O’Mara’s rampant sexist and homophobic comments, the Labour Party have decided to impose an all women shortlist on the seat. Do they think if they allowed their Sheffield Hallam members a free choice they’d end up with another O’Mara?

O’Mara, who despite not turning up for work for months and now sitting as an independent MP, has so far resisted calls to resign and force a by-election, although he did suggest that if he were a Conservative MP, he would have resigned.

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.”
