Tories woo Labour MP in trans row

Look Away Now, Rishi!

A LABOUR MP at the centre of a row over transgender rights has been invited to join the Tories. Canterbury MP Rosie Duffield, who stayed away from the Labour’s annual conference in Brighton a fortnight ago for her own safety, has been told through ‘informal Tory channels’ that she is welcome in Boris Johnson’s party. The approach emerged after The Mail on Sunday revealed last week (inset right) that three Labour MPs were thinking of defecting as they were disenchanted with leader Sir Keir Starmer. Ms Duffield, who has incurred the wrath of trans activists for liking a tweet suggesting ‘individuals with a cervix’ should be called a woman, said this weekend that she was ‘not about to jump ship’.
