Comment from Jon Trickett MP on the resignation of Stephen Phillips MP

Commenting on the resignation of Stephen Phillips MP, Jon Trickett, Labour’s National Campaign Co-ordinator and Shadow Lord President of the Council said:

“Losing one Tory MP in a resignation over her policies may have been a misfortune when Mr Cameron stood down.  To lose a second one over her Heathrow policy was a significant blow. But now to lose a third only a fortnight later over Brexit amounts to a leadership crisis.

“It is a sign that the Prime Minister cannot provide the change which Britain needs.

“Labour will continue to press the case for a Brexit which works for Britain, putting jobs, living standards and the economy first.

“In the meantime, we are now faced with another costly by-election which will be more about Tory failure and in-fighting than what is in the best interests of the country. It’s clear that even Theresa May’s own MPs realise that she has failed to lay out a convincing plan to deliver for Britain.”
