Thank you – we keep fighting together

“The Labour Party will need to select a candidate that can unite all parts of our movement – the union movement, the members and elected representatives. I have to be honest that at this time, that person isn’t me” – Jess Phillips.

In a video message to her supporters which can be viewed here, Jess Phillips MP will today announce that she is withdrawing from the Labour Party leadership race. In the video to campaign supporters and to the tens of thousands of people who have recently joined the Labour Party, Jess said:

“I truly believe that unless we talk to the country on their terms, not just on ours, that we won’t be able to make the gains we need to win an election - and [to] do what everyone in the Labour movement wants to do, and that is make people’s lives better.

“In order to do that, the Labour Party will need to select a candidate that can unite all parts of our movement – the union movement, the members and elected representatives – I have to be honest that at this time, that person isn’t me” 

“In order to win the country, we are going to have to find a candidate in this race who can do that and take that message out to the country of hope and change for things to be better.”
