Ahead of the EU referendum, David Cameron’s sister-in-law declared that she would never vote Conservative again if Leave won. Now that Brexit is firmly on the agenda — and her brother-in-law set to stand down — Emily Sheffield is preparing to join the Labour party. Samantha Cameron’s sister has taken to Twitter to ask how quickly she can join, adding that she only ever voted Conservative for David:

While this news doesn’t come as a huge surprise — given that she tweeted a Sadiq Khan campaign messages during the London mayoral election — it does beg the question of her sister’s voting preference. After all, back in 2010 Ed Vaizey claimed that Samantha ‘may have voted Labour’ in the past. Will she too be tempted to vote red now the Brexiteers have won?
