MP Jamie Reed is to pass once again through the revolving door to Sellafield Ltd
A reader sends news that Labour MP Jamie Reed has decided to leave parliament and return to work for his previous employer, the nuclear power station Sellafield, as the company’s new Head of Development and Community Relations.
He has decided that he prefers this option to working towards the election of a decent government working for the common good. Sellafield’s discreditable past may be noted by following the link above, and worse here (below).
Gesture politics: loyalty is not Reed’s strong point: During Jeremy Corbyn’s acceptance speech as leader of the Labour Party, he publicly resigned as shadow Health Minister giving as his reason Corbyn’s opposition to nuclear energy.
Mr Reed, who has represented the Cumbria seat since 2005, announced in a letter to party leader Jeremy Corbyn that he will down at the end of January 2017.
It is to be hoped that his replacement will be an asset to the country.
