Nancy Platts stood for election as MP for Brighton Kemptown in May, and lost by just a few hundred votes to Conservative MP Simon Kirby.

Soon after, she became chair of the local Labour party, and today it was announced she had been given the new role.

Ms Platts said: “I can confirm that I have been appointed to the role of trade union liaison manager in the leader of the opposition’s office and I am looking forward to getting started.”

Meanwhile, she is also taking a break from Twitter and has deleted her @Nancy_Platts account to concentrate on the new job.

    Labours split locally continues to develop. Looks like the progressives are getting the upper hand on Warren Morgan’s austerity embracing Torylite wing.
