Gordon's comments on Labour Party leadership

Gordon will not be quitting as a Shadow Minister following a string of resignations by fellow Labour front-benchers.

Speaking to the Blackpool Gazette he said: "I am staying in post, doing the job I was asked to do for the time-being.

"We need to have two or three weeks of reflection rather than this series of orchestrated resignations which haven’t given anyone pause for thought.

"Whatever happens over the next couple of months it is important as a party we are looking outwards.

"People are still absorbing the implications of the EU referendum whether they are happy with the outcome or not. Their many concerns are about the future.

"And that’s what we need to be thinking about rather than the current situation in the Labour party."
