THE eighth Labour MP to quit for the independent group admitted she was meant to leave on Monday but it had been a big weekend.
Joan Ryan, MP for Enfield North, confessed that drinking three bottles of wine to celebrate her freedom from ‘that sanctimonious lefter-than-thou twat’ on Sunday evening left her in no state for a press conference on Monday morning.
She continued: “Come on. It’s not like the anti-Semitism’s got dramatically worse in the last two days. You have to believe me.
“I don’t even remember the alarm going off, but I remember my phone buzzing like fuck and this banging on the door which turned out to be a SPAD they’d sent round. I couldn’t face it. I just put my pillow over my head and groaned.
“The other seven have been a bit off with me and fair enough, but we’re all independent. Sly sideways looks are what I left Labour to get away from.
Following the announcement that three Tories had quit, Ryan added: “Oh for Christ’s sake. Now I look like I’ve only done it because they did.
“Still, now there’s 11 of us we’re more powerful than the DUP. And they run Britain.”
