Mr Marshall-Andrews told The Times he had jumped ship in light of the Brexit campaign and Labour’s refusal to stand aside in the Richmond Park by-election.

The QC and barrister was MP for Medway from 1997 to 2010.

A Labour spokesman said: “Bob Marshall-Andrews has not been a member of the Labour Party for some years.”

  1. Unite exec member and printer Ged Dempsey being talked about as strong candidate. respected left wing and corbyn loyalist. From that area. Strong national and local media profile


  2. Surely he’ll av to fight off Ms hearts and minds Hoddinett first. It seems that she’ll probably apply for every vacant seat going she’s that desperate to get her 85,000 quid salary and gold plated pension. No matter who in the labour party gets elected in the various boroughs it seems that Labour is doomed as a viable opposition cos they certainly won’t get in to government !!

  4. I see the Rotherham three are hanging in there
    I wonder who the will sue this time round
    To top up their pension
    Or may be Barron needs a new roof on his tax payers subsidised Derbyshire mansion
    Or may be Healey needs to put a bigger deposit down on his new house he wants to buy
    Or maybe saint Sarah wants a new pony
    One thing is for sure its not for the good of Rotherham
