Brain cancer will not halt Christian bid for Diane's seat

According to the Scotsman, Rev George Hargreaves has pulled out of the General Election contest in the Western Isles because his wife has brain cancer.

But, despite having the disease (she recovered from brain surgery in 2007), Maxine Hargreaves is still hoping to be well enough to take on Diane Abbott in Hackney South and Shoreditch.

Hargreaves told the Scotsman: "Family comes before politics and I have decided to withdraw my candidacy... My wife's cancer has not rocked my faith in God. She is not scared to die – we know there is an eternal place for us."
