Labour sources say Dodds also on way out after sacking of Rayner
After the sacking of deputy leader Angela Rayner as party chair and the reported removal of Lisa Nandy as Shadow Foreign Secretary, Keir Starmer is now set to sack Shadow Chancellor Anneliese Dodds, according to Labour sources.
Dodds has previously been lined up to take the fall for Starmer’s disasters, but was reprieved after anger from women MPs. This time, it appears Starmer’s need to divert blame for his electoral catastrophe trumps his fear of women MPs and the opinions of women voters.
