The sitting MP for Jarrow has been suspended by the Labour party & must now sit in Parliament as an Independent.My question is,if a general election was called while he was suspended would he have to resign his seat and stand as an Independent to try and get back into Parliament.

Eddie, I guess the saying innocent until proven guilty would have to apply, then he would, I would say, have to stand as an Independent candidate, just my thoughts.

Delighted to see Local Parties taking action against MP's who have voted to remain EU where the majority of their constituents voted to leave the EU.
It is happening here in a staunch Conservative Constituency.
Inappropriate behaviour 14 years ago may well have been cited as the reason for suspension now but I wonder what this MP has done recently to jolt some party member's very convenient memory?
Shades of other such recent stories. It has certainly made my mind up not to become an MP because I shudder to think what revelations may come to light in 14 years time about my current inappropriate behaviour.
I remember commenting on journalist Robert Preston’s presentation as dreadful, but it was the wrong time as he had just lost his wife. He has had a new girlfriend for a few years now, who has just remembered 20 years ago Boris Johnson touched her thigh. I have to think how old I was 20 years ago but cannot remember whst happened each day. As a woman I may be condemned but this ‘Me too’ is getting boring. Should I now search for a tin hat! In the mean time Robert Peston’s presentation is still dreadful.
I can't remember how many thighs I touched 20 years ago and I can't imagine any woman wanting to tell the world about it now, unless I was a prominent political figure with opposing views and/or such revelation might proove lucrative.
Of course, I have to admit that any such activity on my part, all those years ago would have been written off immediately as totally unexciting and deleted from the memory of any young lady so touched.
