AN MP has spoken of her concerns as the nominations for the Conservative leadership closed yesterday.

Green MP for Brighton Pavilion Caroline Lucas, right, said: “We face nearly two months of political paralysis while we are all subjected to the spectacle of Conservative party infighting.

“While that is going on, nothing will happen to address the real concerns of people in Britain over public services, the security of their jobs or the climate crisis.”

She said the comments from some leadership contenders on how they would get round opposition to a No Deal Brexit are “deeply worrying”.
