FORMER Labour MP Laura Pidcock announced today that she has resigned from the party’s national executive committee.
Writing on Twitter, she accused Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer of imposing “a barrage of top-down changes which is making it hostile territory for socialists.
“This leadership is devoid of ideas, lacking vision. I can’t and won’t negotiate with these people anymore. The summit of their ideas are just small tweaks to the status quo,” said Ms Pidcock, who is also national secretary of the People’s Assembly.
She said that the catalyst for her decision had been “the cheering of a Tory MP crossing the floor in the House of Commons,” adding that defector Christian Wakeford “has voted against everything we believe in.”
Current party rules mean that no by-election will be held to determine who replaces Ms Pidcock, with the runner-up in the 2020 contest taking her place instead.
