Brighton MP slams Westminster ‘chaos’ and calls for new elections

Kemptown MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle has joined calls for a general election to end the “chaos” in Westminster.

He said Liz Truss’ resignation “won’t be the end of the circus” and predicted another civil war would erupt among Conservatives to find her replacement.

He said: “I was elected in 2017 and have been in Parliament through some pretty turbulent times, but nothing comes close to the chaos we are seeing now.

“Government functions and decisions remain in a state of paralysis, as they have been for most of the year.

“It is clear that we need general elections and I will be making this call together with my opposition colleagues.

“Unfortunately, however, we would need around 40 Tory MPs to vote with us for this to be possible. As the saying goes, turkeys don’t vote for Christmas.

“The sooner this farce of conservative rule ends, the better.”

Mr Russell-Moyle also said the collapse of the government would mean legislation to end evictions would be put on hold until a new leader was elected.

He said: “We are finally nearing the finish line with the introduction of legislation. Government failure means people are being unnecessarily homeless in the run-up to winter.”

All three of the city’s MPs have now called for a general election as another contest for the Conservative leadership begins.

A new Prime Minister and leader of the Conservative Party will take office next Friday.
