MP Roger Godsiff has been axed as the Labour candidate for the Birmingham Hall Green constituency after supporting protests against LGBT+ inclusive curricula and anti-bullying programs in the city’s primary schools. Godsiff is 73 years old and had been a MP in Birmingham for 27 years, but on Wednesday November 6 Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC) said that it agreed with activists that his position had become “untenable” since he claimed to agree with the Anderton Park school protesters, saying he understood why they were concerned as he had seen the covers of some books planned to be used at these lessons. According to BirminghamLive, the Labour Party has said that other candidates for the position have until Thursday November 7 at 2 pm to apply and the NEC will announce their choice by the weekend. As for Godsiff, he is still able to take part in the election, but only as an independent candidate, not on the Labour Party behalf.
