Jess Phillips has announced she will stand as a candidate in the Labour leadership contest.
The Birmingham Yardley MP joins Emily Thornberry, Clive Lewis and Lisa Nandy as confirmed candidates. Others including Rebecca Long Bailey and the early frontrunner Keir Starmer are expected to join the race formally in the coming days.
“Jess Phillips does not have a political bone in her body – how often have you heard her talk about economic policy, for example?
She is a self publicist who treats parliament as if it were the set of a reality TV show.
If she is the answer, Labour is asking the wrong question.” – P. Embery.
“I asked her if a Labour MP working for such a prominent Tory activist’s firm was a good idea but got no response.
Labour MP Jess Phillips has an £8,000-a-year sideline working for top Tory donor and former Conservative deputy chairman Lord Ashcroft’s firm.” – S. Hughes.
“Jess “I will stab Jeremy Corbyn in the front” Phillips continually refers to her time in the ‘NHS’ and working for a women’s refuge, like she was a front line nurse and councillor. What she doesn’t say is she was employed by her mother’s consultancy by the NHS and she was a business manager for the refuge.” – D. Jones
Jess Phillips also has a history of making disturbing false allegations for political gain.
