The former Labour parliamentarian for Lincoln, Ms Gillian Merron, was spotted earlier today in Lincoln. Ms. Merron who lost her Lincoln seat in the general election to Karl McCartney MP, Conservative (Lincoln), resurfaced on Guildhall Street in the centre of the city earlier today.
Quizzed on what life was now holding for the former minister now that she had left government and parliament she responded that she was 'looking for work', confirming other reports of her recent activities from other source.
Ms Merron also indicated that David Miliband, the shadow Foreign Secretary, had her support to become the next leader of the Labour Party and scotched Diane Abbotts chances of winning the leadership.
In all Ms Merron seemed to be in confident and positive spirits and her opponent had failed, by his own definition, of what he wanted to achieve by winning the seat with a bigger swing than that achieved by Martin Vickers MP, Conservative (Cleethorpes).
