Brexit playing cards: Six to Two of Diamonds

Further nobodies, including a few of the loonier LibDems.

Six of Diamonds: John Healey

Wentworth and Dearne voted 70.28% Leave in 2016, and deserves better than this weaselly Labour nonentity, who would probably continue to act against his electorate's wishes.

Five of Diamonds:  Ian Lucas

A Labour Remainer in Wrexham, which voted 57.57% Leave in 2016, Lucas will not be standing in December 2019.

Four of Diamonds: Jane Dodds

Elected in the 2019 by-election, Dodds is a LibDem in Brecon and Radnorshire, which voted 51.86% Leave in 2016.  With failed Conservative Christopher Davies now replaced, the electorate may withdraw their protest votes from her in December 2019.

Three of Diamonds:  Tim Farron

Farron has been wrong on almost every statement he has made, ranging from gay rights to defence.  He has described himself as a Eurosceptic but consistently voted as a Remainer.  Westmorland and Lonsdale voted 52.94% Remain in 2016, but there is hope that Farron and the LibDems will be ditched in the December 2019 election.

Two of Diamonds: Layla Moran

Remarkable only for her violence twaords her boyfriend, Moran was the LibDem MP for Oxford West and Abingdon, which voted 61.97% Remain in 2016.  While there is little chance that the students of Oxford will now support Brexit, there may be a chance of her losing the seat in December 2019.
