Labour politician breaks down on live radio talking about her ‘friend’ Conservative MP Sir David Amess
Labour politician, Paula Sherriff, broke down on live radio this afternoon while talking about her “friend” and Conservative MP, Sir. David Amess, who was stabbed to death while hosting a constituency surgery at a church on Friday.
Sir. David Amess, 69, died following a stabbing attack at constituency surgery he was hosting in a church in Leigh-On-Sea, Essex on Friday afternoon.
Ms. Sherriff served as MP for Dewsbury from 2015 to 2019 before stepping away from politics after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020.
“I loved him,” said Ms. Sherriff to Shelagh Fogarty on LBC on Friday afternoon.
“David was a wonderful, wonderful man - I have lost a friend today,” she added.
Ms. Sherriff described how Sir. David kept in touch with her throughout her battle with cancer.
“David contacted me a few weeks ago when he was in Manchester for the Conservative Party Conference and he asked me if I would like to meet him for a drink.
“I really wish I had met him for that drink now,” she said.
