Peter Kilfoyle hits back at Joe Anderson in Luciana Berger row

The fallout over the selection of Luciana Berger continues to cause waves in the Liverpool Labour party.

Last week Liverpool Labour leader Joe Anderson leapt to the defence of Miss Berger after Walton MP Peter Kilfoyle branded her an inexperienced student politician.

Cllr Anderson hit back and said: "There are many people that would argue that some of our Liverpool MPs are past their sell by dates including Peter.

"But I would not support that view because I think agism, whatever end of the spectrum [is wrong], people should be judged by their character and ability."

But Kilfoyle has had the last word. He said: "I'm glad that Joe is defending me - just like I defend him against those people who say he is incompetent."
