Disgraced Peterborough MP Fiona Onasanya was at the center of a new media storm today as a downright bizarre video emerged of her pretending to snort cocaine.
She made the video following an unspecified meeting which she says in it left her feeling “inspired”. She then goes onto use what appears to look like a credit card to mimic chopping up a line of cocaine, before bending down towards an empty table and snorting the imaginary substance from it.
Although there are no substances present in the video it will add to the clamor for Onasanya to resign ahead of her sentencing for perverting the course of justice. Local Labour activists have been put on red alert for a potential upcoming by-election.
Labour members in the area received an email on Friday afternoon calling for them to attend a campaign day in Peterborough ‘ahead of a potential by-election’. Meanwhile, the Tory candidate was out campaigning today in an inner-city ward:
The campaign in central ward starts in #Peterborough – fantastic turnout for our great candidate Khazar Suleman and yours truly #torycanvass @ToryCanvass @PbConservatives @Conservatives pic.twitter.com/aUdQE9jHFW

It certainly promises to be a tightly fought contest.
