Op-ed; The man in the image above is Labour Party MP Tom Blenkinsop.
He may not look like a traditional Labour Party MP but times change and as my old Mum used to say you cannot judge a sausage by its skin. But both of those statements are flawed.
Mr Blenkinsop has been an MP since 2010; not a very long time in political terms.
He has spent a great deal of the last two years or so trying to undermine Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn attacking some party members along the way.
We watched his petty blocking spree on Twitter last year as he blocked every single account he could find that supported Jeremy Corbyn.
Tuesday as unelected Tory PM announced a snap general election planned for June 8, 2017, Mr Blenkinsop finally put his money where his self-serving mouth is and made his own announcement that he is quitting.
If timing is everything in politics his announcement is telling. Labour will now face selecting a candidate in time for June 8.
But what do people like Mr Blenkinsop care whether the Labour Party win or not?
Right-wing political mouthpiece Kevin Schofield was keep to share the following on Twitter;
All of this confirms what many people have suspected for some time and that is people like Blenkinsop are in either the wrong job, wrong political party or both!
Blenkinsop represents the seat of Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland.
This blogger has never interacted with him but she was one many blocked by him on Twitter last year.; she is a lifelong Labour voter and more recent party member.
But the likes of Blenkinsop will not stop her voting for the Labour Party and its beat leader for many a year.
Forget the mainstream media hype, check out Labour policies and then #Vote Labour
Note: As for Mr Blenkinsop goodbye and good riddance
Additionally by the time this post was good to go we received news that Alan Johnson MP for Hull West and Hessle is also quitting. An email from Mr Johnson explains why. We wish him well.
All things Corbyn
