Ronnie O’Sullivan backs Independent candidate Faiza Shaheen

It’s another celebrity endorsement! World snooker champion Ronnie O’Sullivan backs Independent candidate Faiza Shaheen at the general election.

“The Rocket”, a resident of Chingford & Woodford Green, who backed former Labour under Ed Miliband in 2015 and Jeremy Corbyn in 2017, said it was a “no brainer” when Ms Shaheen decided to run, according to The Mirror:

In a video alongside Ms Shaheen, the snooker legend said he was “definitely” voting for the candidate who is a “massive part of the community”. He added: “I just think someone without passion, you know, dictating what goes on around this area isn’t going to be good for the locals.” Mr O’Sullivan, 48, said: “I love this area, it’s my home and it’s a really special place for me.

“I think it’s really important we have a local person as our MP, someone who knows this community, someone who has roots here and wants the best for us. And I think Faiza is that person. I know life isn’t great for everyone. People are struggling and they think that a lot of politicians don’t understand how tough life is for them.”

He added: “Faiza has bundles of passion. She is well respected here, people know her, they see her in the café or in the supermarket. She’s one of us. When I heard she was standing, I got in touch to give her my support. To me, it’s a no-brainer. I’ll be voting for Faiza and, over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be helping to encourage people to get behind her too.”

This Site also supports Ms Shaheen to oust the odious IDS from Parliament so he can do no more harm to the people of the UK.

How about you?
