Stories involving John Mann

MP's wife sent dead bird

A dead bird was posted to the wife of John Mann, the MP has revealed.

Jo Mann, a newly elected councillor, arrived home from her first council meeting yesterday to find the package.  It made her feel “really sick”, she said.

Mr Mann said the couple would not be intimidated, and that he hoped the perpetrator would be found swiftly and “given the maximum punishment possible”.


A number of Labour MPs, including Kate Hoey and John Mann, have called for Gordon Brown to step aside as Labour party leader in the wake of Thursday's election. Other MPs have said the party was defeated on Thursday and does not have a mandate to govern.


David Miliband's bid to be leader of the Labour party was boosted today as nominations by constituency Labour parties closed with him 17 ahead of his brother. David also won a 'primary' vote conducted by one MP through a postal ballot of local members.


The new expenses watchdog is facing a backlash from MPs, who claim the new rules will force them to lay off staff and compromise services to constituents. Labour MP John Mann has said the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority "have no idea what a modern MP does."


Former minister Kate Hoey has called on Gordon Brown to resign as leader of the Labour party, saying it would be impossible for the party to acheive "renewal" without a new leader. Her comments come after Labour MP John Mann called on Mr Brown to step down.


Labour MP John Mann has increased the pressure on Gordon Brown after calling for him to resign in the wake of Thursday's election. Ben Bradshaw said Mr Mann showed a "lack of understanding of the constitution", adding "PMs resign when another government is formed".
