Kate Hoey, Labour MP for Vauxhall has dropped a strong hint she may consider standing in a snap General Election for a Party other than Labour. Hoey, who also told Sky News that she would back Boris Johnson in tonight’s crunch vote on the Parliamentary timetable.
Hoey, who was hounded and harassed by Remoaning Labour activists for her consistent support for Brexit, announced that she would not stand again in a General Election for Labour in July. However, today she seemed to hint that she may consider standing but under a new banner:
Kate Hoey tells Sky News that she has only committed to standing down *as a Labour MP*, and hints she may stand for a different party

It seems logical to assume that standing for Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party may well be an option for Hoey. The Brexit Party have attracted support from across the traditional left-right spectrum with one of its MEP’s, Claire Fox, being a notable left-wing activist.
