Labour's longest-serving MP is to stand down at the next election.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-59538838

Barry Sheerman, 81, who has been Labour MP for Huddersfield since 1979, said it had been "the honour of my life".

The former select committee chair said standing down at the next election was the right time for him and the party.

Mr Sheerman added he was proud of the work he had done over the past 42 years but was looking forward to spending more time with his family.

Harriet Harman has also announced that she will be standing down at the next election.

I've only just noticed that in the 1982 Peckham by-election which first propelled Harman to parliament, her Conservative opponent was a young John Redwood.

The only reason that Labour is making progress in the polls now is that voters are finally beginning to realise that they have a venally dishonest incompetent as PM. Nothing to do with “Keith”’s contrasting competence, or canny slow but steady positioning, oh no.

That’s the line the embittered Corbots will take next, natch.
