No I won’t be Running

23256 -  1 Andy Reed MP

Although I have no intention of running in any election I am quite flattered that people still ask if I will do it!

I think anybody who knows me understands why I would not be running for a marginal seat under Jeremy Corbyn at this stage in my life.

I was honoured to have fought the Loughborough seat from 1992-2010 – representing the area for 13 years in Parliament. I did the job to the best of my ability and when I lost in 2010 I said it was time to move on. I don’t see any reason to change that view at this stage.

I will give my support to any Labour successor as I did to Mathew in 2015.

Thank you to all the kind words from across social media. I will enjoy writing about an election from the side again in 2017!

    Personally I would find it very difficult to support a Labour candidate unless he is fully pro-EU
