Candidate of the day: Kate Hoey


Elected to Parliament in a by-election in 1989, Kate Hoey is one of the most rebellious in the parliamentary Labour Party.

Hoey is a rarity in politics – an MP who serves her constituents, not her party machine.

A pro –hunting Eurosceptic in favour of restricting immigration – it is often said that she would be more at home with the Tories, particularly since Ed Miliband took charge of Labour.

Frankly, it is irrelevant which political party Hoey is in. She is a maverick and will do what she thinks is right, not what her political party tells her is right.

The Conservative Woman thinks that Kate Hoey is a common sense, principled parliamentarian who will play a vital role in the debate over Britain’s relationship with the EU after the May election.
