What is Laurence Fox up to? I bet you don’t ask yourself every day. Well, tough luck as today he has said he will run in Boris Johnson’s former seat.
Boris Johnson resigned from his Uxbridge and South Ruislip constituency.
If successful (no laughing at the back) in the by-election for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, Lozza would be Reclaim’s second sitting MP.
Former Conservative Andrew Bridgen defected to the party in May and is the lone voice for Reclaim in the Commons…for now!
Fox said in the statement of his intention to stand: “The main political parties are not fit for purpose. We have uncontrolled immigration putting pressure on an already over stretched NHS, which is one of the poorest performing health services in the developed world.
“Labour and Conservative are offering the same policies and are largely indistinguishable… Britain deserves better.
“Reclaim seeks to represent the best interests of British people, Reclaim is motivated by common sense. Reclaim is interested in a prosperous future for our children.”
Here you go…
Boris Johnson resigned from Uxbridge and South Ruislip constituency on Friday ahead of the publication of the findings of an inquiry into whether he knowingly misled his fellow MPs over Partygate.
The former Prime Minister accused the privileges committee of “bias” and likened it to a “kangaroo court”. The committee, in response, said Mr Johnson “impugned the integrity of the House” with his attack.
