Frank Field : A Statement of Independence

old frank

Frank Field turns to one of his many chosen media outlets (but the one with the biggest circulation and online presence) to announce that the Veteran ex–Labour MP will fight the next election as an Independent

The hagiographic Daily Mail article describes Frankenfield as “…one of the Commons’ most venerable and venerated figures…”  as the MP for Birkenhead declares :

I have decided to fight the seat at the next election against the Labour candidate. I’m sorry it’s come to this.

But then as we know Frankenfield has been fighting against the Labour Party one way or another for many years.

With the Labour candidate for the Birkenhead constituency at the next General Election  yet to be decided it would appear that the current MP for the town has already got his  election bandwagon on the road.

As a well practised political operator (not a compliment), and being close to the action in the House of Commons, is Field anticipating that a General Election is looking increasingly likely to be held before the fixed election term of May 2022, when he will then be nearly 80?…

  1. Dear old Frank looks as though he’s been pumped full of formaldehyde and wheeled out next to Crippen and Albert Pierpoint in the Historical Hangings section of Madame Tussaud’s.
