In a passionate endorsement the former Blue Peter presenter Konnie Huq has taken to twitter to sing the praises of her sister, Dr Rupa Huq.
Rupa is fighting for re-election in London’s most marginal seat of Ealing Central and Acton. Konnie who still lives in the constituency began by outlining the history the Huq family in Ealing, which dates back to the 1960s, before going to explain why she thinks her sister is the best person for the job. Konnie cited how her sister has been an important voice in Westminster against cuts to local schools and Hospitals. Konnie explained that Rupa “speaks for Ealing and Acton” as reflected in her vote against article 50 which was in line with 72% of constituents who had voted to remain in last year’s referendum.
Konnie Huq’s endorsement for Rupa comes hot on the heels of another endorsement from a more surprising source. Last month Lib Dem grandee Sir Vince Cable was caught on tape urging Lib Dems in Ealing Central and Acton to vote for Labour’s Rupa Huq.
