UK: Recall moves forward against Labour MP jailed for speeding
Following a rejection of her appeal of her conviction, recall petitions will be taken out against Labour Party MP Fiona Onasanya after she claimed someone else was driving her car when she was caught speeding (11 mph over the limit). Onasanya has already been expelled from the Labour Party and spent three months in jail. Petitioners would need about 7000 signatures to get on the ballot (10% of voters).
