Support Gary Elsby!

For many years Gary Elsby was a regular contributor to the comments on this blog, much to the amusement of fellow co-conspirators. So it is without hesitation that Guido endorses his campaign “to do battle” and “carry the torch of socialism.”

The former Stoke Labour Party constituency secretary is standing as an independent, this is a bit of collateral damage in advance of the full-scale civil war that will come following a Labour defeat. Mandelson is trying to hold the line against the Whelan-Balls-Brown axis which is putting its placemen into upcoming seats using UNITE’s muscle with Tom Watson enforcing the faction’s advantage wherever he can. Mandelson in private sees the battle for Labour’s soul as his primary mission having calculated that Labour is likely to face at least one, if not two terms out of office.

The exit of so many Blairites has been a tawdry money-grubbing affair which has strengthened the Brownite / UNITE hand with ordinary disgusted Labour Party activists.  Mandelson has weakened his hand by misjudging matters and insisting that a “toff” like Tristram should be a standard bearer for his faction.

All in all, Stoke promises to be a foretaste of the chaos that will engulf the Labour Party following election day…

    I have decided to send some potatoes to Gary to see him through the campaign. Up the workers. Dig deep everyone and send Gary a potato.

            elby’s a fucking nobhound.


          • Gary their is no labour party - you are living a lie says:

            I respect Elby in his hopes, in his dreams though he is totally delusional.

            He has just found out like all the other MPs on the back benches that Labour does not excist!

            he has been living a lie, swapping socialist values for society destroying anti values – PC.

            he like the rest of the usefull idiots bought into the lie out of sheer desparation hoping t cling to something they falsely believed was socialist.

            all the while they backed the corporate bankers of the NWO, the undemocratic fascists of the EU, the destruction of the working class and their culture and the ethnic cleansing of entire cities!

            The labour party does not exist, the MP and Gary are clinguing to a lie, enabling everything they deep down detest!

            the tories and Labour parties are just a pantimime the corporate bankers, their royal backers and the corporate cartels use to enslave the masses for their own greed.

            Tories – Same!

Stoke is also known now as little Paki/Poland – I’ll leave the bloggers to figure out why. You really are hard pressed now to hear a local accent, lrt alone an English one. You get what you vote for!

        So why did the greedy thieving housing benefit cheat claim 1700 pounds per month in interest charges for a mortgage that he didn’t need because he has loads of other houses he could have lived in?
        Which means David Cameron specifically and unnecessarily took out that mortgage for the sole purpose of maximising his allowance claim.
        What a fraud David Cameron is.

      • 260

        Hunt is the son of Lord Hunt of Chesterton, who was leader of the Labour Group on Cambridge City Council in 1972-3. After attending University College School (UCS), Tristram Hunt read history at Trinity College, Cambridge and the University of Chicago, and was for a time an Associate Fellow of the Centre for History and Economics at King’s College, Cambridge. His PhD, Civic thought in Britain, c.1820- c.1860, was taken at Cambridge and was awarded in 2000. Before this, Hunt had worked for the Labour Party at Millbank Tower in the 1997 general election; he also worked at the Party’s headquarters during the following 2001 general election during the 2005 general election he supported Oona King’s campaign in Bethnal Green.

        Hunt was a fellow of the Institute for Public Policy Research and is on the board of the New Local Government Network (2004).

        Turning to biography, Hunt wrote The Frock-Coated Communist: The Revolutionary Life of Friedrich Engels (U.S. title: Marx’s General: The Revolutionary Life of Friedrich Engels), published in May 2009. For the book, Hunt researched at German and Russian libraries and begins with an account of the author’s own trip to Engels, Russia. The biography received a number of favourable reviews, including one from Roy Hattersley, the former deputy leader of the Labour party, in The Observer.[4]

        He is married with one son and a daughter. He lives in Haringey.

        a seat is Parliament is his birthright. These people were bred to rule us, you know.

          Mdme Defarge says:

          I really want to weep when I read this sort of thing. I have no objection to young Tristram having a marvellous education and making his way in the world…but not as Fabian/Marxist/psuedo working class MP. People are just sick of this stuff.

          Just what does he have in common with people in Stoke -on-Trent? I am sure he did put up a tremendous presentation of himself before t’committee – with his background he’s bound to.

          I remember when Tony Benn took over the very safe Labour seat of Chesterfield from Eric Varley. Benn was a a good MP but the people moved away from hard line Labour and support seeped away until a massive majority was over-turned by the Lib-Dems and is still in their hands. The Tories took over the county council (Derbys) again after 20 years or more. Things change and parachuting such a candidate into Stoke may well be the downfall of Labour in the city…for a long, long time.

          I am sure I would heartily disagree with Gary Elsby’s views but he’s a son of the toil and knows Stoke and its folk so I support Guido’s support to support him.

      Mr Cameron, 38, who has put a modernising agenda at the centre of his campaign, clearly enjoys the comparisons that have been made between him and Labour’s most successful modern-day Prime Minister.

      At a dinner with newspaper executives on the eve of his address, he took the comparison a step further. “I am the heir to Blair,” he said. If his hosts were in any doubt about what they had heard, Mr Cameron repeated the mantra. He also said that a Cameron Tory Government would not reverse all of the Blairite reforms in the public services.

      His hosts were, to say the least, taken aback. Mr Cameron was guest, in the Louis Room at the Imperial Hotel in Blackpool, of The Daily Telegraph, house journal of the Conservative Party. The spirit of Margaret Thatcher, who was even praised by Kenneth Clark yesterday, still beats strongly in the editorial conferences of the newspaper.

      Charles Moore, the former Editor who was at the dinner, is the official biographer of Baroness Thatcher, whose admirers include . . . Tony Blair. Mr Cameron, who was accompanied by his wife, Samantha, was not isolated in the intimate gathering.

      George Osborne, the Shadow Chancellor and fellow member of the so-called Notting Hill set of young modernising Tories, was also at the dinner table. Mr Osborne, defending the heir to Blair boast, said: “We have nothing to be ashamed of in saying it.”

      the Editor of The Daily Telegraph, which has yet to declare for any of the five candidates, was not so sure. “David,” he said. “I would not repeat that outside this room.”

        No one can be the heir to Blair…

        No one can pull a Ponzi scheme like he did…Blair “did” £ 1.4 trillion Madoff only $56 billion…

        If New Labour try it again they will go straight to jail like Madoff…!

            “I don’t see the BBC as a State broadcaster. “I think people see the BBC as operating at arms length from the government and it’s very important that it should continue to do so and that’s why we’ve said we will protect the BBC charter.”

      Never Mind Socialism - Think of it as an Ethical Economic Policy says:

      Are you seriously trying to suggest that Gordon Brown is a socialist?
      Because he introduced a minimum wage?
      Because he introduced tax credits?
      Let us not forget at the same time he did that he also let the city and the bankers run riot.
      No, Gordon Brown is not a socialist, I doubt if he ever was one.
      But I can understand why you Tories are getting worried: the New Labour party was a Conservative construct, this country has not had a socialist government in the last 50 years.
      But we might have one very soon. And if we do I warn you not to be a banker, not to work in the stock markets and not to be a landlord for if you are you are going to be fucked very hard indeed.
      You capitalists have had a good run but the truth of the matter is that your greed has queered your own pitch. You are on the back foot now and it is time for the knife to be cleanly and deeply stuck in to your ribs and for you to pay your way for a change.
      You will have to be taught that we are in this together and you will have to be taught the hard way.
      The tax liabilty will be shifted from the bottom to the top and those who earn the least will pay the least and those who earn the most will pay the most.
      It is a moral economic policy that is required to solve the problems this country is facing and such a policy will not be introduced by the millionaire Tory party.

          Economies must be protected from vultures like you or else we would be living in anarchy where the devil takes the hindmost.
          Even if David Cameron becomesPrime Minister, which is a very big if, he will not be able to piss without the say so of the Unions.
          The rules of the game have changed, and it is all thanks to the greed and incompetence of the banking sector.

    This is typical of the BBC trying to divert the REAL blame for the mess which is nothing to do with no women on boards (our financial institutes have operated happily for hundreds of years without women) but the failure of McLiebour and Mc fucking gay boy prudence to ensure proper regulation of the city.

    Go back a couple of decades and a portly balding man who drove a Saab would have been your typical bank manager, hardly Mr risk taker.

    Oh and how come Mc fucking Liebour have more female MPs than ever and have got us into more wars than I can remember. Also 99.9% of the dead and wounded coming back from these wars are male.

    Tristram’s father was a great philanthropist, looking after the needs of Stoke’s railwaymen and potters by selling them beer from his many breweries.

    Tristram himself has worked hard for the people of Leyton , erm, I mean Stoke, by writing books on Marx and Engels and having them available to borrow from the local library, sadly now closed.

    He is often seen in Stoke,well since last week, where he still wears his Everton scarf left over from when he tried to pass himself off as a local for the Liverpool west seat in 2007. He also wears a fully packed parachute, just in case another safe seat suddenly becomes available.

    Gary Elsby is almost certainly unbalanced.
    But he could not be called a hypocrite. He always made very strong, if typically socialist party screaming mad comments. He deserves at least to have the opportunity to share a platform and debate with the dark Lord’s New-Improved Labour protege.

      He should put himself forward for Upyourbumville in Rentboyshire.

      I don’t mind a good old fashioned socialist. I don’t care if I disagree with everything they believe in as long as they believe in something. I can think they are mad without having to hate them. It this load of c*u*n*t*s that I despise as they believe in nothing except feathering their own nests at our expense.

    Now why would a life long labour supporter/activist try to get elected by hiding his political affiliation?

    What is our Gazza ashamed of I wonder? Would comrade Gazza be a true indy MP when he has been a lifelong labour supporter, or is it because he knows full well that anything wearing a labour rosette will be getting less votes that the monster raving loony party at the election!

    They also look like before and after photos. Before and after Stoke I suppose.

    Gary Elsby says:

    Thank you for your support. I shall always wear it…

    Apologies to Spike Milligna, the well known typing error, for plagiarising one of his neat lines.

      Already done at 168 Mr Elsby. I first heard it from Eric Morcambe but admit that it does sound very Spike.

    gurka the mercenary says:

    This socialist will only split the labour vote and get the BN-P in.

    They named an island after one of these blokes.

    I don’t suppose anybody know which one is was?

    “Mandelson in private sees the battle for Labour’s soul as his primary mission”

    I hadn’t realised how close you two were.

    Snuggles says:

    Yeah I hope Gary gets some support. Nice of the Labour party to parachute in one of Mandy’s old chums isn’t it(Tristan Hunt)?

    Sucker By Necessity says:

    Notice he’s not smiling because he pulled out his own teeth with pliers when this ‘Government’ decided to do in all the dentists.

    Ratsniffer says:

    Go Gary! Even Pravda Newsnight asked Tristan if ” a middle class public school educated candidate called Tristan was really the right choice for stoke…”

    I wonder why Mandy likes him?

    I’ll support anyone who helps cause even more chaos for labour.

    Mayor "Diamond" Joe Quimby says:

    Support Gary Elsby!
    Gary Elsby would support you!

    Mercian says:

    I thought Gary Elsby was a comic construct like E L Whisty or Kevin Turley, but if he’s real and he’s finally seen the light, he deserves support.

    Fred says:

    Now we know why Nu Liebore filth have been forcing schools to teach children buggery for 5 hours a day (at the expense of literacy and numeracy).

    They want to fill parliament with arse-sucking fags, and want the electorate conditioned into sodomites who will vote for shit-stabbers.

    Cream Knackers! says:

    That picture can’ t be Elsby, he looks almost human?
    Tristam Hunt (bound to become the new ryming slang on the blogosphere) looks like a BBC correspondent, except his views won’t be as left-wing as theirs!

    Peter Carter-Fuck says:

    I thought Gary Elsby was our private joke, nobody told me he was real.

    Crusty says:

    Gary Elsby is a fucking twat I remember his loony comments on Boultons Sky blog an absolute Hunt

    Rowan Tramp Bastard says:

    There needs to be a new party: the “sodomites and muff suckers”.

    Most of the filth in parliament are evil perverts and an affront to God.

    If there is a revolution, I want the job of burning MPs. I’ll burn the depraved child-buggering filth real slow.
