LABOUR’s Shadow Justice Minister Gloria de Piero quit last night – with a blast at the “intolerance” in the party.
The former GMTV star resigned from the frontbench and said she would not be contesting the next General Election.
The widely respected MP told members in Ashfield, a Leave constituency, that she had been subject to “grim” abuse from second referendum campaigners.
And she insisted she would continue to fight for Brexit – albeit one with the “closest possible trading ties” with the EU.
She said: “I will continue to give the job 100 per cent but I won’t be the Labour candidate at the next election.”
She added: “The lack of tolerance for different viewpoints in the Labour Party frankly worries me.
“We have to have respect for each other, even if we disagree, because we are all part of this party.
“When I hear people being called right wing in the Labour Party I find it utterly offensive .”
