Labour’s Rosie Duffield believes that Labour’s trans policy is making ‘feminists vote Conservative because “we are making complete idiots of ourselves”.

In the Sunday Telegraph, Duffield said, “We are basically making complete idiots of ourselves and there is no point pretending we are not,” Duffield said.

“It is horrible to have to criticise your own party. I have been trying for two years to have conversations privately and now I am speaking out.

“The public are having these conversations, it’s not just me saying ‘I want to embarrass the party’.

“We need to have an answer, it’s not going to go away.”
