Monty Panesar ex-England cricketer standing for Workers Party

Former England cricketer Monty Panesar has joined the Workers Party and is standing to be an MP.

The 42-year-old spin bowler announced he will be standing as a candidate for the Workers Party of Britain in the west London constituency of Ealing Southall.

Sky News reported that: “Panesar, who played for England between 2006 and 2013, is set to run against Labour incumbent Virendra Sharma, who has been the MP there for 18 years, as part of Mr Galloway’s plan to scupper the party’s chances by protesting against its stance on the war in Gaza.”

“Confirming the cricketer will be standing, Mr Galloway told LBC: “Monty, of course, was a great left arm spinner and so we could do with him.””
