Christian Wakeford, A CONSERVATIVE MP, Has Defected To The Labour Party.


At the next general election, in 2020, Mr Wakeford ousted Labour from Bury South. He was one of several members to submit a letter of no confidence in Prime Minister Theresa May following reports of closed-door parties at Downing Street.

Mr Johnson’s defection will be a blow to the Tories, who are now without two of their most powerful advocates on the issue. It comes as Mr Johnson prepares to face Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer at Prime Minister’s Questions. In a letter to Mr Johnson, Mr Wakeford stated that “you and the Conservative Party as a whole have


He was greeted with cheers by Labour politicians as he made his way across the Commons chamber to join his new Labour colleagues on the benches.

“We are ready to provide a government that this country can be proud of, rather than embarrassed by,” wrote Mr Wakeford. He stated that his constituents require “only a Labour administration under Keir Starmer” to make the changes he is calling for.

Sir Keir has welcomed Mr Wakeford to his party, saying: “Christian stated, the Conservative administration’s policies are doing nothing to help people in Bury South and are only making their challenges on a daily basis worse.


“People throughout the United Kingdom are confronting a cost of living crisis, but this feckless Tory government is oblivious to it, consumed by its own self-inflicted chaos.”

Mr Johnson began the session by rejecting a call for him to step down from Liberal Democrat MP Wendy Chamberlain, urging MPs to wait for the conclusion of a review into lockdown events conducted by top civil servant Sue Gray, which is supposed to be released next week.

Mr Johnson began his questioning by offering a “warm welcome” to Mr Wakeford to his new political party, the Labour Party. Mr Johnson stated that the Conservative Party had won Bury South for the first time in a generation under this prime minister.

At a rally in the town hall, Mr Street told the crowd: “I’m delighted to be here today. It’s great to see you all again. This is your home, and it always will be.” He added: I am pleased to announce that Labour has won an election on an “agenda of uniting and leveling up,” according

The most recent MP to leave the Conservatives and join Labour was Quentin Davies in 2007, when Gordon Brown was leader. Robert Jackson defected to Tony Blair’s Labour Party in 2005, and Shaun Woodward did so in 1999.

Mr Wakeford is a member of the Red Wall Conservatives, a group of Labour Party defectors who won traditional Labour seats in the north of England at the most recent election.

By 402 votes, incumbent Labour MP Mary Glindon was ousted by Paul Brannen of the Conservatives in Bury South.
