Instead of deserting their party if MPs don’t agree with their leader and policies they should stay and voice their opinions.  There is a few MPs in the Labour Party who don’t like Corbyn and they know they are stuck with him for now but they haven’t deserted the Party, Kate Hoey being one of them.  A Smith knows she might not get elected again in her current seat, so she has nothing to lose by changing parties. 

 

There should be a by-election if an MP decides to leave their party.

Kate Hoey was threatened with deselection though, as have other Labour MPs when they don't come out as Corbyn suckups.

You may have done, others didn’t.

 

I believe that since 2016 the majority of Stocksbridge and Penistone constituents wish to remain in the EU.

After making a couple of posts refuting your above beliefs, I find they have been removed. Therefore I will not waste my time challenging your post any further.

To be fair, Hoey has been disliked by those on the left of the party for decades before most people had ever heard of Jeremy Corbyn.  As a fox-hunting supporter and Ulster Unionist she belongs in the Tory party.

Does anyone from any party like Hoey?

 

She has some odious views.

Angela Smith will not be standing for re-election in her current seat. She will be standing in Altrincham, let's hope the people there see sense and send this two faced women packing.

If Angela Smith just wanted a quite life continuing to pick up her significant MP's salary, she'd not only have stayed where she was in the Labour party, she'd have spouted a load of hypocritical guff about how she now supported Brexit "because the people have spoken". But she didn`t, she took the hard route because she genuinely believes that :

 

1 - Brexit is a bad idea and will harm her constituents.

 

2 - The people voted for something (as advertised by Leave "a cake and eat it Brexit" which avoids us being in the EU with Turkey) which they're definitely not going to get whatever happens.

 

These are facts.

Read today that if she is not elected in her new area she will not be entitled to the payment MPs receive when there not re elected.

That is true. It's such a shame but, perhaps, her supporters on here could crowdfund a golden farewell for her? Or she could sell off some of the perks, sorry expenses, she accrued whilst in parliament. Maybe three of the four beds she/ we bought for her/ our one bedroom flat?

Could be interesting in Altrincham. The sitting Tory MP who is up for re-election is a Leaver. He has a fairly solid majority, even though the constituency voted Remain.

You've got 1 vote, you have to use it or your house gets burnt down with you inside it. Are you voting Angela or Jared?
