Or has she stolen enough public money that she doesn’t need to run again?

Hardly. About five or six have said they aren’t standing so far.

Question for @redfanman and anyone else who might have an opinion.
What is your reading of these ‘early’ declarations of ‘not running again’?
Who is behind this?
Could it be the formation of a new party and these not running will get what they hope will be safe seats further south?
Aren’t most of them Boris Johnson fans?

They have needed to declare their intention to stand by a certain date I think. Add in marginal majorities in these seats and a shit show of a government, their performance and the general anger across the UK they are literally leaving the sinking ship.

It appears so, from Huffington post:

Conservative Campaign Headquarters (CCHQ) have given their English MPs a fortnight to decide whether or not they want to stand at the next election, which is expected in 2024.

Nothing like putting the pressure on.

What he said.

Obviously know they are going to get their arses handed to them at the next election, so why bother spending a significant amount of time and energy only to lose your job?

It’s almost as though they don’t actually believe the shit their party spouts is the best way forward for their respective constituencies…surely not??

Indeed. A lot of them know they are going to lose their seats and are getting out now. Wish mine would do the same. She’s fucking useless.

Mick Lynch doing his thing. Astounding mess that they cant even find the right organisation to discuss the dispute with. A huge amount of kicking the can down the road as well allowing their buddies in the press to demonise the rail workers.

My mum had to go to A&E yesterday, she was told there was a 9 hour wait for an ambulance.

She went in a taxi instead, was seen to after 5 hours and discharged 3 hours later.
