Top Reclaim Party MP left furious after outrageous Christmas card gaffe

A Reclaim Party MP was left furious after a mistake was spotted in a Christmas card he sent out to his constituents. Andrew Bridgen, who it is understood is “not happy” about the error, shared some festive cheers with locals in his North West Leicestershire constituency by sending out a festive card.

However, one eagle-eyed recipient of the card spotted a glaring mistake. Writing on X, formerly Twitter, Ian Stringer – a commentator on sports radio broadcaster talkSPORT – shared the error with his near-70,000 followers.

He wrote: “A lovely Christmas card from a local politician. A tree, a star……himself, obviously.”

But Stringer added: “Shame he spelt his own name wrong. Whoops.

“Merry Christmas Andrew Bridgen/Brigden.”

Speaking to, Mr Bridgen said: “I looked at the first draft and corrected it but someone published the wrong version anyway. There’s been a big mistake somewhere.”

Mr Bridgen, 59, was first elected to Parliament back in 2010 as a member of the Conservative Party.

But earlier this year the Burton upon Trent-born politician was expelled from the party after criticism he unleashed about the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

He also said the use of vaccines constituted “the biggest crime against humanity since the Holocaust”.

In the months since his expulsion, Mr Bridgen has joined the Reclaim Party, a new movement launched by actor and political activist Laurence Fox.

It comes after the Conservative Party’s MPs turned on its HQ after it used an image of a BBC news anchor giving the middle finger in an attack against Labour over immigration.

Among those to criticise the HQ was Bournemouth East MP Tobias Ellwood, who demanded the post be deleted.
