Danczuk: 'I'm solidly Labour'

A Labour MP seen drinking in a pub with Ukip leader Nigel Farage has insisted he is “solidly Labour” after rumours he could defect to the Eurosceptic party.

Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk said that he was committed to his party, but that Labour needed to better address the issue of immigration.

“Whether you like it or not, they are the third party in British politics,” he said. “I think it’s also interesting to reflect on how Ukip has impacted on the Labour party.”

 


A second MP has said Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy should be suspended while he faces a criminal investigation by the police watchdog. Graham Stringer should be removed while the IPCC launches an inquiry into his handling of a sex abuse case. Labour's Simon Danczuk has already called for Sir Peter to be suspended. But Greater Manchester's Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd has said he will allow Sir Peter to continue in his role.
