A former Labour MP has said she will not stand in her current constituency at the next general election.
Angela Smith was a founding member of Change UK before joining the Liberal Democrats last month.
She confirmed she will not stand for election in South Yorkshire where she has been an MP for 14 years.

She changed to Lib/'dems' as Change UK had no chance of getting elected, her reason to stop Brexit - opportunism, she's obviously been scratching around for her best chance of securing a job next time round - does she really care about the people of Altrincham/Sale?

The answer to the question is no she doesn't care about the electorate,  she cares about keeping her snout in the Westminster trough, the people should stick with Mr Brady, he seems like a decent bloke to me, as for her stopping Brexit, if I remember correctly an opportunity to do such a thing wasn't on the ballot paper either.
