She covers politics and insurance and can be contacted at [email protected] Ukip was on course for a second seat in the House of Commons last night as former Conservative MP turned Ukip member Mark Reckless looked certain to win back his seat after sparking a byelection when he defected. The Tories had hoped to hold on to the Rochester and Strood seat but were privately conceding defeat last night, despite a strong campaign which saw Prime Minister David Cameron visit the Kent constituency a number of times along with senior cabinet colleagues and other MPs. Questions of further defections to Ukip loom­ed over Cameron’s party last night following the win. Meanwhile, the Labour party had problems of its own as shadow attorney general Emily Thornberry resigned her post after a storm of protest over a photo she tweeted from the constituency. The photo showed a white van and house decked with three England flags, with a fellow Labour MP suggesting it was “derogatory and dismissive of the people”. whatsapp whatsapplast_img
