THERE are not many Members of Parliament TCW will be sad to see the back of. But there is one: Kate Hoey.
She stands heads and shoulders above her colleagues – Labour and Conservative. There is not a woman MP to match her in any of the parties.
As she said in her moving valedictory, she has always put country before party:
Would that other MPs were as principled. Parliament will be a poorer place without her. Young MPs should listen and learn what political principle really means, and perhaps there is no better place to start than her speech at the Leave Means Leave rally on March 29, 2019:
We wish Kate well and hope that, liberated from party politics, she will continue to exert her influence for good.
