THE former Eastbourne College student and Bexhill resident wants to become Britain’s first transgender MP.

Comedian Eddie Izzard now identifies as a woman.

She said: ‘I wish to stand, I wish to be considered for a constituency, I would love to be elected and I would love to fight for Keir Starmer to be the next Prime Minister.

‘I don’t trust Boris Johnson. He has lied upon lied and that is not a good example to our children, to say if you lie enough you can become Prime Minister.’

She said: “It’s a time of great separation in our country and around the world.

“But no, let’s make connections. In the time of Covid we must learn from each other, we must reach out, not have this separate thing. A fair chance in life should be the right of every person in the world.”
