Jess Phillips has indicated she wants to lead the Labour Party – and make it in her image. Her reactions on election night must be seen by Labour members who will vote in that contest
Jess Phillips has given a strong indication that she intends to stand for election as Labour leader – and was filmed on election night talking repeatedly about her popularity. Her opponents in the West Midlands have nicknamed her ‘Mimi’.
But as the grim results came in, she also appeared on Channel 4 – and host Krishnan Guru-Murthy asked “How are you feeling as these results unfold?”
Her reaction – which included more talk about how people like her – must be seen by every Labour member who will vote in the coming contest:
Ms Phillips did wear a sombre expression in other parts of the interview and talked about the ‘devastating’ results and their impact on local people – but her merriment on a grim night for Labour and millions of vulnerable people must not be forgotten.
It’s essential that Labour members not only stay in and ensure the party is not dragged back to the ‘all the same’ right – but also recruit friends and family to make the party even stronger for the long fight ahead.
