Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Spokesperson for Manchester Blackley, Iain Donaldson, has called on the Labour Party to stop vilifying veteran Labour MP Graham Stringer for his views on climate change and Britain's place in Europe, stating "That's my job!" Mr Stringer, contrary to what his views suggest, is Labour MP for Blackley and Broughton Constituency, which straddles the cities of Manchester and Salford.
