Margaret Hodge Has Lost The Plot

Therefore, she should lose her seat.

It is up to Marc Wadsworth whether he wishes to take down her, because of the racist difference between the Labour Party's treatment of him and its treatment of her, or whether he wishes to take down Ruth Smeeth.

Whichever against whom he chose not to stand ought to face a Palestinian opponent. As should whichever of Louise Ellman and Luciana Berger against whom Audrey White, who would make a superb Liverpool MP, chose not to stand, if she chose to stand at all.

If she did not, then both Ellman and Berger ought to face Palestinians at the polls. As should Ian Austin, Chris Leslie and Chuka Umunna. There may be more.

Emails are already crossing continents. I have seen them. Although who knows to what, if anything, they will come? Vote for one of our people if available. Vote for whoever was in second place if not.

By the way, Chuka, I remember when the Labour Party really was institutionally racist. In 2003, the then Chief Whip, Hilary Armstrong, absolutely refused to countenance a mixed-race District Council candidate in her constituency.

John Woodcock is likely to go down anyway, one way or another. Alas, though, such people are going to be numerous within the Parliamentary Labour Party for some years yet. But another hung Parliament is coming. We need our people to hold the balance of power in it.

In addition to the foregoing, that means that Jess Phillips must be defeated by George Galloway. Only Roy Jenkins has ever been an MP for all three of Britain's largest cities of London, Birmingham and Glasgow. Much of his Stechford constituency is now in Yardley, where Phillips is the MP.

But Jenkins did eventually lose his Glasgow seat to Galloway, who has now been both a London and a Glasgow MP, as well as a Bradford one. With its close ties both to Ireland, and to the Islamic world in general and Pakistan in particular, Birmingham is a city made for Galloway. He needs to be the next MP for Yardley.

And I need £10,000 in order to stand for Parliament with any chance of winning, at a General Election that it is now worth emphasising might come at any moment.
