Mark Hendrick is a black politician in the U.K house of Commens. He entered the Commons on November 24 2000. Many of his Commons interventions have been on European matters, where he has taken the opportunity to attack Conservative policy.
Mark Hendrick entered the Commons on November 24 2000, ‘Super Thursday’, when three separate by-elections were held.
He succeeded the left wing MP Audrey Wise – a matter of some controversy, since many local Labour members had wanted the former MP’s daughter to be the candidate.
Instead, Mr Hendrick, an electronics lecturer and a former MEP, won the nomination after being placed on the shortlist by the NEC.
He denied being a leadership pawn, saying: “I have my own views.”
