McDon­nell ‘would not live at 11 Down­ing St’

Uxbridge Gazette - - NEWS -

JOHN McDon­nell has said he will con­tinue to live in Hayes if he be­comes Chan­cel­lor of the Ex­che­quer.

The Hayes & Har­ling­ton MP, who be­came shadow chan­cel­lor when Jeremy Cor­byn won the Labour lead­er­ship in Septem­ber, is likely to shun 11 Down­ing Street if elected into gov­ern­ment at the 2020 gen­eral elec­tion.

Speak­ing to a Vice.com news web­site, he ad­mit­ted his first three months had been a strug­gle, with the me­dia, Tory traps and build­ing his staff from the ground up pre­sent­ing chal­lenges.

But he added: “Ev­ery day I’m step­ping for­ward. I wouldn’t live at Num­ber 11 though.

“I’d stay in Hayes I should think. I’m al­most cer­tain.”
