Labour Brexiteer MP Kate Hoey has said she could remain in the House of Commons if the UK has not left the EU by the time the next election takes place.
In July the long-standing MP said she was resigning as an MP and would not seek re-election as a Labour candidate when the next election is called.
But she now had a changed her mind, telling talkRADIO she “didn’t want to leave parliament until we’re out of the EU”.
Instead she could stand as a candidate for anything but the Labour Party, fuelling speculation she could run as a Brexit Party candidate.
“Certainly I wouldn’t be standing as a Labour candidate but I would consider something else perhaps,” she said.
Hoey said she was angry that Jeremy Corbyn had “rolled over” on the matter of Brexit.
She said: “The Conservative Party particularly know that they’re going to need support from the Brexit Party if they’re going to win enough to get a majority in the next parliament.
“Labour of course is going to find it very hard up in the north and the midlands where people are just so angry at the way a leader of our party who was a strong believer in leaving the EU has just been rolled over.”
