MP votes to stay at home with her shielding husband

Herbert Soden

Local Democracy Reporter

An North East MP has been forced to choose between protecting her husband who is living with incurable cancer and voting in parliament.

North Tyneside MP Mary Glindon has taken the decision not to return to parliament as Ray, her husband of almost 20 years, is shielding because he has incurable cancer.

And she says Government’s decision to end virtual voting “doesn’t seem to have any logic to it”.

In late April a hybrid system, allowing MPs to participate in the Chamber either in person or remotely, was introduced which included remote voting.

But following a decision by Jacob Rees-Mogg, leader of the House of Commons, remote voting is no longer possible, instead new measures are expected to allow vulnerable MPs to apply for a proxy vote.

Mrs Glindon took the decision not to attend parliament as her husband Ray, a North Tyneside councillor, is shielding because he has incurable prostate cancer. She said: “For five years Ray has had fantastic treatment and money spent on him by the NHS, how foolish would it be to say ‘lets chance it’. “I think life’s too precious. He’s fought hard to be here. I owe it to him to respect that.”

Dementia father makes 'miraculous' coronavirus recovery

Philippa Goymer

Broadcast Journalist

An 82-year-old man with dementia has made a "miraculous recovery" after being struck down by the coronavirus, his son has said.

David Lovenbury from North Tyneside said he started planning his father Sid's funeral after his dad was hospitalised with Covid-19.

But now his father has been discharged from hospital back to the care home he lives in in Stoke, where he will now self-isolate for six weeks.

David Lovenbury said: "I spoke to a nurse who said 'we are getting him ready to be discharged' which was a huge shock.

"Doctors told me my dad mad made a pretty miraculous recovery and was fit enough to return home."

Tyneside North: Labour hold

Mary Glindon has been re-elected as the MP for Tyneside North, with a decreased majority.

The Labour MP beat Conservative Dean Carroll by 9,561 votes, less than half the majority at the 2017 election.

Andrew Husband of the Brexit Party came third and Liberal Democrat Chris Boyle came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.8 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 50,000 people, 63.9% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

One of the five candidates, John Buttery (Green) lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
