Jess Phillips has announced she’s withdrawing from the Labour leadership contest.
The Birmingham MP said Labour needs someone who can unite all parts of the party – and “at this time, that person isn’t me”.
Sending a message to everyone who has backed me, to all who have joined in and joined up – I promise that your voices will still be heard. We all have a role to play in changing our party and our country. pic.twitter.com/xianaiGpPr
