+ + + Woolas Guilty + + +

The Labour MP recently appointed to Red Ed’s Shadow Cabinet has been found guilty on two counts of breaking the Representation of the People Act by making false election statements. No appeal, by-election in Oldham imminent.


UPDATE: Labour HQ is silent but the distancing has already begun. Lord Falconer just told the BBC he doesn’t believe that Woolas will be the candidate at the by-election. Red Ed is in a very tricky spot here…

UPDATE II: Woolas is making noises about attempting a Judicial Review. Hope he’s got a pretty penny…

    interestingly not a hint that Woolas has therefore been found guilty of committing the conduct complained of, or having comitted an offence – apparently the court “heard” about the issues relating to the leaflets and the election has to be “re-run”.

    Not a word that the court found the allegations proved and that the election result is Void.

    no, mate; it’s vital to our democracy that people standing as candidates don’t lie and smear their opponents with bullshit that they know is completely untrue.

    You can speak freely, but you can’t libel or slander people just because you’re in the labour party.

    Mind you, if that’s the courts’ findings, then virtually every constituency that currently has a labour MP should be up for re-election, because labour MPs have spent the last 13 years being complicit in cooking the country’s books and lying on every front possible and telling people that the tories will kill your granny with a mechete and eat new born babies (ok, so that last bit’s not true, but it’s pretty close).

For tactical reasons, I felt we had had little choice.”[7]

    There are some serious gangsta types in bed with Labour in West Central Scotland.

    Try doing a google on that and see if you can find anything in the dead tree press.

    All the digging is due to the blogosphere.

    Why are all of you getting so excited over the Woolas case? It’s far from cut & dried.On Monday the Speaker of the HoC will decide if Woolyarse can take his place in the House & I can’t see him not supporting a Liebour m.p.
    Wooly will likely enter an appeal against the Court findings or an application for judicial review.( ?? Lawyers paid from taxpayer funded allowances per example set by Gorbals Mick )
    No, my excitable little munchkins, this has still got a long way to run before you see finalisation of the outcome you desire & which I also share.

    You know what really pisses me off about Australia?

    The fact that it is there, and I am still here. What a truly stupid bunch of idiotic people the British have always been. So stupid in fact that we actually sent our thick criminals to paradise, and left our more clever criminal classes in charge of just about everything at home.

    Which just goes to show, that a nation almost entirely inhabited by criminals beats a country entirely run by them, every time. What is worse they will also beat us at the cricket, but hopefully not by such a humiliatingly large margin.

    Seriously – the rubbish that Nu Labour distributed was at the very least defamatory – it reminds me of hysterical N+zi propaganda (HT Godwin!). Some samples are at

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
