Chris Bryant

Redirected from Christopher John Bryant

Christopher John Bryant (born 1962) is a British Labour Party MP.

A former Church of England priest, author and BBC executive, Chris Bryant became MP for the rock-solid Labour seat of the Rhondda[?] in South Wales, in 2001. Bryant is homosexual, and Plaid Cymru's campaign against him was accused of being homophobic. Nevertheless Bryant won with a majority of 47.2%.

Bryant is a Christian Socialist[?], a member of the Co-operative party[?] (An organisation affiliated to the Labour Party of which he is also a member), the Fabian Society, Amnesty International and the Trade Union MSF. This, and the fact that he starts regular campaigns to help the Rhondda, has made him a very popular local figure.

Bryant is pro-Europe, anti-drugs, strongly against fox hunting and in favour of an elected House of Lords.

He has written books on Stafford Cripps[?] and Glenda Jackson.
