Rachel Johnson's Difficult Women

Tuesday, 14 June

Luciana Berger was a Labour MP for Liverpool Wavertree for nine years and bears the scars on her back – in her words, it wasn’t easy being “young female and Jewish” especially when Jeremy Corbyn was leader. She has been the target of industrial and criminal abuse and threats (several men have been fined or gone to jail). Shadow minister for Mental Health under Corbyn she resigned after Brexit, joined the breakaway independent group of MPs in 2019 that became the doomed Change UK, then joined the Lib Dems – it’s hard to keep up, but now she is in public relations and has two small children, and the party is more united under a new leader. And she’s still young female and Jewish - does that rule out a return to Parliament?
