Voters in Luciana Berger's Liverpool constituency gave a mixed response to her resignation amid misgivings at the current leadership of the Labour Party.
In a random selection of local voters in her Wavertree constituency, many could not name her, but recognised her name, and all appeared to be aware of the accusations of anti-Semitism within the Labour Party.
She has been an outspoken critic of Labour's leadership, and of Jeremy Corbyn over his handling of anti-Semitism and his Brexit position.
Her stance on alleged hatred towards Jewish people has seen her face a torrent of abuse from online trolls and she required a police escort at last year's Labour Party conference.
But most voters in Wavertree appeared more concerned with immigration issues locally than machinations in the "Westminster Bubble".
Ian Green, wearing a Glasgow Rangers bobble hat and a regular at the Rose Vaults pub on Wavertree High Street, said:
I think it was inevitable. I'd still vote for her, I think she's doing a good job.
Ann Baker added:
I think it's quite sad. She's done quite well here, she's quite high profile. I think she's trying her hardest and she's giving up a safe seat.
Colette Basley, a volunteer at the local Cat's Protection charity shop said she had voted Labour in the past but not now as it was full of "brainwashed students".
I don't think Labour would recover from the state they're in now.
Steve Prendgast, 64, who said he was a life-long Labour voter, said:
I heard them talking about it this morning on the news about anti-Semitism and all that. Berger, Ellman, from what I have seen, they are nice people.
Pensioner Monica Kavanagh, said she was a Labour voter and the anti-Semitism her MP had suffered was "disgusting" but she would still vote Labour over any independent.
I've voted Labour at all times. I would rather have Labour, they have done well for our country."
