Congratulations to John Cryer

Not that there’s much else going on at the moment, but Leyton and Wanstead MP John Cryer and fellow MP Ellie Reeves are bound to be a bit otherwise occupied for a little while – their son was born on Monday morning.

Mr Cryer announced the birth on Twitter, saying:


Our congratulations to them both. And with one eye on the future, if Baby Cryer should become another member in the Cryer political dynasty (both of John’s parents were MPs), let this blog post become part of the public record.

Both John Cryer and Ellie Reeves have been re-selected by their local Labour parties to stand in the general election.
