Speaking to the i newspaper, Foreman says the Tories have gone to far and now believes that Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party are the best hope for women hit by the increase in state pension age. However, she adds that Labour still needs to do much more.

She said: “I was brought up an absolute true blue Tory but I couldn’t vote for them now. Not in a million years.

“I joined Labour for Jeremy Corbyn in 2016. He was like a breath of fresh air. I renewed my membership today.

“We have really intransigent Conservatives here. The Labour group has supported the local Waspi group really wonderfully.”

  1. So…if it wasn’t for the Conservatives increasing the woman’s pension age, she’d still be a thick Tory.

    Sorry…but once a thick working class Tory, always a thick working class Tory.

    I’d still ram her up against a wall and shoot her if it was up to me. NO FICKEN SYMPATHY FOR HER SELFISH I’M ALRIGHT TYPE.

    She can fick off as far as I’m concerned.
