Labour Party Remove Mandy Richards as Candidate for Worcester

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Labour Party has decided not to endorse the candidature of Mandy Richards as the Labour candidate for Worcester following a series of allegations which have been made against her. The NEC had met in an urgent meeting yesterday evening and confirmed that the candidate would no longer be sanding for the party.

Richards had made comments which questioned the Manchester bombing, as well as the murdered Labour MP, Jo Cox. It has also transpired that she had been banned from bringing certain cases to court, without having declared that to the Labour Party whilst making her application.
