Was she "ever" actually proper labour ? ... hard to believe she's ever been anything only a DUPper who could swim :unsure:
She was in the Internationalist Marxist Group, a Trot party, when she first moved to London. Careerist move into Labour.

God be the days when Krazy Katie sold Red Mole around London.

There is a remarkable trend where many of those who start on the outer fringes of the loony left, gravitate to the raving right as they grow older. The one consistent factor is the tendency to extremism.
The Brexit Party MEP Claire Fox is another one.
Hoey has very pointedly stated that she will not stand for parliament as a Labour Party candidate again. It has been speculated that she may stand for the Brexit party instead. It would be amusing to see someone who routinely cosies up to the DUP, belonging to the same party as an IRA supporter like Fox, and of course the rumba queen herself, ultra-Catholic Anne Widdecombe.:)

A lot of mainland folk see The IRA (and whoever supported them) as ancient history now.

That's because she was deselected.

Labour MP Kate Hoey says she will fight moves to deselect her

She's fighting it? Despite representing a constituency which voted 77.6% to remain in the EU, and goes against the party whip in every Brexit related vote? The cheeky old witch certainly has a brass neck, I'll give her that, but was never the sharpest knife in the drawer. She didn't last long as a junior minister.
Maybe the DUP have her lined up to stand in a constituency over here, she may not be the sharpest but would still have more ability than many of the DUP reps.

That occurred to me as well but none of their existing MPs seem to be standing down. They could try to run her in North Down against Sylvia Hermon of course, but it voted "remain" in the referendum, and her past hard left socialist background might mitigate against her as well.
