Labour MP Stephen Doughty resigns live on TV – BBC News

Stephen Doughty announced his resignation as shadow Foreign Office minister on the Daily Politics. The MP said he agreed with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on a number of issues, but attacked the behaviour of “some of those around him and on his team”.
He was particularly critical of the way shadow Europe minister Pat McFadden was sacked in the reshuffle. Mr Doughty became the second person to resign from the Opposition front bench, after shadow rail minister Jonathan Reynolds quit saying he wanted the freedom to speak from the backbenches.
