Hertford ward councillor Godfrey Allanson said he was very disappointed to hear about Ms McIntosh’s deselection and added that she’s a “first-class MP”.
Cllr Allanson continued: “I proposed her at the beginning of Autumn for re-selection and I was staggered that she lost.
“I had lots of phone calls from people in the constituency. The majority of voters see her as a hardworking MP, both nationally and locally. She’s always been there when I wanted to discuss anything or raise any issues, such as the Filey flooding.
“I do think most people see Anne as a good parliamentarian who fights for local issues.I think it’s now a case of seeing what options are open to her.”
