Default Another Labour MP Louise Ellman quits party over antisemitism

[I won't back Corbyn for
PM: Veteran Labour MP
quits party over antisemitism
The MP for Liverpool Riverside had
been a party member for 55 years,
but was facing deselection in her constituency.
Labour's antisemitism row has erupted
spectacularly again as the veteran
Jewish MP Louise Ellman quit the party
and condemned Jeremy Corbyn as
unfit to be prime minister.
Ms Ellman, 73 and a leading figure in the
Jewish community, has been MP for
Liverpool Riverside since 1997 and
at the 2017 general election had
a massive majority of nearly 36,000.

This is really sad.
I rate Louise Ellman a really good MP.

It is unfortunate moves were afoot as to reselection.
I don't see anything wrong with that, MPs can't be guaranteed to have their jobs for life.

Some have long careers as MPs others very short.

I will always wish Louise Ellman well.
I don't however understand her timing.

Just barely 2 weeks ago, if Johnson had got his wish for a general election..
She'd have stood for Labour on its manifesto and now be in the middle of that election campaign now.

So are her reasons now, just the fact re-selection moves were heading into place, since she'd have been out there in Liverpool, fighting for a Labour victory, now likely in this very week.

As to antisemitism, she knows a full independent investigation is in place so why not wait for that to happen fully and get concluded.
I'm confused slightly as to her real reasons for resigning now.
Rather than before a general election could have taken place 2 to 3 weeks ago.

Whatever, it's a sad end to 55 years in a party and over 20 as an MP.
Terribly sad.
