More than 50 MPs have announced they are standing down ahead of the December 12 general election, with some hinted at the toxic nature of modern politics during a wave of announcements.
All The MPs Who Are Standing Down At The General Election
Former cabinet minister Amber Rudd, who resigned from the cabinet and surrendered the Tory whip over Brexit in September, was among the latest in a series of high-profile parliamentarians to say they were getting out of Westminster.
She was followed by former cabinet colleague Nicky Morgan, the culture secretary, who alluded to the “clear impact on my family and the other sacrifices involved in, and the abuse for, doing the job of a modern MP”.
On Wednesday, Tory former de-facto deputy prime minister Sir David Lidington and Conservative grandee Sir Patrick McLoughlin also said they would not seek re-election.
Tory grandee Keith Simpson, who is also standing down, warned the prime minister he might end up losing the election because of the exodus.
“So many good colleagues from One Nation standing down with Liders, Sir Patrick, Alan Duncan and now Nicky Morgan,” he said on Twitter.
“Boris may get back some Brexiteer Tory and Labour voters but he is losing the Liberal Conservatives. How not to get a majority.”
They followed Ken Clarke, the longest serving MP in the House of Commons, and the Speaker of the House John Bercow giving notice before the vote was called this week.
Underlining the fraught state of politics, Liberal Democrat MP Heidi Allen on Tuesday said she will not stand as she declared that Brexit has “broken our politics”.
The former Tory said she is “exhausted by the invasion into my privacy and the nastiness and intimidation that has become commonplace”, adding that lines are too often crossed and the effect is “utterly dehumanising”.Here’s a full list of those stepping aside:1.
