Mick Whitley – 2020 Comments on Rebecca Long-Bailey

Below is the text of the comments made by Mick Whitley, the Labour MP for Birkenhead, on Twitter on 26 June 2020.

I’m proud to call Rebecca Long-Bailey a friend and colleague.

She was an incredible Education Secretary, working alongside the unions to oppose the Government’s reckless plans for school reopenings.

Her departure from the frontbench is regrettable and I hope to see her reinstated.
