Theresa May’s decision to call a snap election has left most of us in shock, so we don’t blame Labour for looking for fresh talent online. However, we think they may be a bit surprised by these responses.

@UKLabour I'm a conservative member. Can I apply? Not clear on the application form, asks only for member number but does not specify for which party.

Let’s face it; this is who we really want to see elected.

Perhaps other bodies could also adopt this approach to find talent?
@UKLabour Wonder if the FA will adopt this tactic for the next World Cup. Top class striker? Give us a call, ability to score penalties an advantage

If you want to apply, you’ll have to be quick. The deadline is 12 noon on Sunday.
