Since joining Parliament in the snap election, the Labour MP created a media-storm last year when she declared that she would not be friends with a Tory. Happily, Jeremy Corbyn sees no issues with such a stance and has just promoted Pidcock – appointing her Shadow Minister for Labour.
Only it’s a bit complicated. Just a few hours ago, Pidcock expressed her solidarity for her comrade Chris Williamson – who resigned from the frontbench – declaring that she was ‘buzzing’ to have him join her on the backbenches for ‘the struggle ahead’:
#Solidarity to @DerbyChrisW, one of the most genuine and principled MPs around – a signpost, rather than a weathercock. Buzzing to have him join me on the backbenches for the struggle ahead. pic.twitter.com/SFi2IxtoWm

That show of solidarity lasted long…
