Labour MP Simon Danczuk ‘dumped’ by new girlfriend


Simon Danczuk, the Labour MP, appears to have been 'dumped' by his girlfriend just hours after the couple were criticised for a series of selfies while constituents struggled to cope with floods.

Mr Danczuk, 49, had faced a Twitter backlash after Claire Hamilton, a Labour concillor in Leyland, tweeted about gong for a "romantic" Boxing Day curry with the Mp.

It came as parts of Rochdale, Mr Danczuk's constituency, were left submerged with towns and homes flooded.

After the criticism Miss Hamilton, 32, appeared to suggest their relationship was over after tweeting: 'Dumped Danczuk. He had it coming.'

@CllrClaireH @SimonDanczuk I'll be drinking nothing tonight as I couldn't even get into my home in the flood. Insensitive tweeting.

Mr Danczuk last year had a public split from his wife, Karen Danczuk, known as the 'selfie Queen' on Twitter.

Miss Hamilton was elected as a councilor at the age of 21 and was elected as a councillor for Leyland in South Ribble, Lancashire in May.

Described by a local paper as a “Blair Babe’’, the young Miss Hamilton was photographed with Tony Blair at the Labour party conference in 2005.
