Rosie Duffield: MP considers leaving Labour over 'obsessive harassment'
An MP has said she is considering her future in the Labour Party after "obsessive harassment" from current and former party members.
Canterbury MP Rosie Duffield claimed in a series of tweets that "personal, libellous, nasty" things had been published about her.
"I have been subjected to this rubbish for years," she said, adding that the Labour Party had offered no help.
Extremely unpleasant I imagine, although I can't easily imagine it because too often there is something disturbingly malign about political obsessives, something dark, even wicked. We know about useful idiots, but useful obsessives are not necessarily idiots. Far too many unworthy causes are partly supported by obsessives.
The Labour party should deal with this one and virtually everyone must know it. It diminishes both Starmer and the entire party. Not that it takes much doing, but there is a particularly unpleasant, particularly totalitarian stink around what is happening to Rosie Duffield. Something we should all be concerned about.
