Monty steps back… for now

The corporate media has been relentless in harassing Workers Party candidates whilst keeping from the public the abdominal terror attack on our party in last weeks elections.

We salute the Ashes hero Monty Panesar for standing up and helping the party launch its general election bid. We reproduce the statement from Monty below:

I’m a proud Brit who has had the honour to represent my country at the highest level of cricket. I now want to do my bit to help others but I recognise I am at the beginning of my journey and still learning about how politics can help people.

So today I am withdrawing as a General Election candidate for The Workers Party. I realise I need more time to listen, learn and find my political home, one that aligns with my personal and political values.

I wish The Workers Party all the best but look forward to taking some time to mature and find my political feet so I am well prepared to deliver my very best when I next run up to the political wicket.

Thank you
