Pro-Corbyn councillor and CLP chair Mary Foy has won the contest to stand for Labour in City of Durham constituency at the next parliamentary election.
Ms Foy’s victory continues a positive week for the Labour left in selections to replace retiring MPs and defectors. She will replace Roberta Blackman-Woods, who announced that she would step down at the next general election.
As the SKWAWKBOX reported, Foy once wrote to right-wing pressure group Labour First to protest against their decision to back her candidacy for Labour’s National Policy Forum, after the group attempted to muddy the electoral waters by including left-wing candidates in their list.
