Labour had to apologize to the family members of a Tory MP who died after asking him to vote in the byelection.

Sir Keir starmer, the party of Sir Keir Starmer sent a “Vote Labour!” appeal to James Brokenshire last month. Brokenshire had just lost a brave fight with lung cancer.

The former Cabinet Minister’s death, at the age of 53, has sparked a by-election in his former Old Bexley and Sidcup seat – with Labour seen as the main challengers for the December 2 poll. 

Labour campaigners, however, were eager to reverse a Tory majority of almost 19,000 and so addressed an “election communication” to Mr Brokenshire at the family home.

In an extraordinary blunder, Sir Keir Starmer’s party sent a ‘Vote Labour’ appeal to James Brokenshire, pictuted, who died last month after a brave battle with lung cancer

A remarkable blunder, Sir Keir’s party sent James Brokenshire a Vote Labour’ appeal. James Brokenshire was pictuted after fighting lung cancer for many years.

According to The Mail on Sunday, Mr Brokenshire’s wife Cathy was upset by the Labour-branded letter that included a large photo of Daniel Francis as party candidate.

Last month, Sir Keir, Labour’s leader, joined the tributes for former Communities Secretary. He described him as a friend to many and commanded immense respect.

Sir David Evennett was the Tory MP in Bexleyheath, Crayford and called for Labour’s forgiveness. 

And last night, Sir Keir’s party responded with an apology to Mr Brokenshire’s family

Last night Sir Keir’s party offered an apology for Mr Brokenshire’s death.

Last night Sir Keir’s party issued an apology to the Brokenshire family. Labour released a statement saying that it was an ordinary freepost mailing party receives at election times. It is distributed to all voters in the area.

“We deeply apologise to the Brokenshire Family for any inconvenience caused.”

However, one Labour MP stated that there was no way the ‘dreadful error’ could have been made. Labour may be able to achieve a surprise by-election because of anger from voters about the failures of the government over Channel migrants and disgust over Boris Johnson’s corruption.

Louie French, a local Bexley Councillor is the Tories’ candidate for the seat that was once held by Sir Edward Heath, former Prime Minister.
