Former Labour MP Gisela Stuart appeared alongside Boris Johnson and Michael Gove today and urged voters to back the Conservatives.  While several of her former colleagues have already voiced support for the Tories at this election, this is the first time a former Labour MP has actually appeared at a Conservative event.  Stuart was a prominent figure in the Leave campaign and stood down as the MP for Birmingham Edgbaston in 2017.  Her message today was clearly aimed at Labour Leave voters in the Labour heartlands, whose votes could very well decide the outcome of this election.
