Brexiteer Hoey not seeking re-election as a Labour candidate

Staunchly pro-Brexit Labour MP Kate Hoey has announced that she won’t be standing at the next election for the Labour Party.

In a statement today she has said: “I have decided that after 30 years as the MP for Vauxhall I will not seek re-election as a Labour candidate.”

Hoey is one of the most principled MPs in Westminster. If only the country had more like her.
