LABOUR MP Rosie Duffield says her party needs to be clearer over what they stand for – and stop sitting on the fence on big issues.
Speaking to GBNews, Ms Duffield also criticised Keir Starmer’s decision to u-turn on green spending.
She told Patrick Christys on GB News: “I don’t have any input into the future manifesto as a backbencher, but I know that a lot of Labour MPs would like some clarity on our policies going forward because we’re always asked about it.
“I was disappointed with the scrapping of the green pledges, as were lots of other vocal Labour MPs, so it would be nice to get a bit more clarity on those issues.
“A bit less fence-sitting in the next few months. And we’re going to have to do that, aren’t we? So people know what we stand for?”
Asked if she, herself, felt she really knew what Labour stands for on some of the bigger issues she continued: “No. I think people are obviously developing our manifesto. So hopefully we’ll hear that quite soon.”
Ms Duffield also said her party had work to do when it came to being clearer over trans issues.
She added: “We haven’t exactly been clear on those issues for the last few years, but I mean, what can I say I think we’re still in a bit of a mess about it, to be completely honest. I’m not sure sitting on the fence on this issue is really winning the Labour Party and your friends.”
