Louise Mensch: I had 'no fear' of election defeat

Former Midlands MP Louise Mensch said she had "no fear" of defeat at the next general election after her husband told The Sunday Times that was the motivation for her resigning as a Tory MP.


However; nothing, repeat nothing, influenced decision to resign other than inability to hold family life together away from him.


Lastly; @maindepowr apologetic but not a pol, doesn't do on message & I love him for it. Thinking of creative ways he can make it up to me


Can honestly say I had no fear whatsoever of defeat at next election since had already decided not to stand again.
