A senior Labour politician has dismissed any prospect of a deal with the Green MP for Brighton Pavilion Caroline Lucas after the next general election.
Angela Eagle, the Shadow Leader of the House of Commons, was reported to have made her remarks at a fringe meeting at the Labour Party conference in Manchester.
According to a BBC report, Ms Eagle said that Dr Lucas “spends all of her time in Brighton slagging the Labour Party off because she knows that if she loses her seat, she will lose it to the Labour Party”.
She added: “We don’t want to get into some kind of sado-masochistic relationship with Caroline Lucas.
“We want to take Brighton back and that is what we are trying to do.”
The panel at the Fabian Society fringe meeting included Katie Ghose, the chief executive of the Electoral Reform Society and a former student at BHASVIC (Brighton, Hove and Sussex VI Form College).
