Charlotte Hale Hitler Salute
Tweeting Labour Staffer in Nazi Hypocrisy

There are bigger stories out there today, but one final word on this Nazi costume controversy. Guido isn’t defending MPs turning a blind eye to such antics, but the hypocrisy around this whole affair knows no bounds. Take Charlotte Hale for example, staffer to Labour MP Emma Reynolds:

Strong words, but what’s this Charlotte?

Sieg Hale!

      One of the many advantages of being a Brit, before the New Labour Reign of Terror anyway, was our ability to have a laugh, even during the worst situations, even over the darkest subjects. A quick glance at cartoons from the war would be a good example. So why can’t anyone understand that dressing up as a Nazi is done to mock them. I don’t even criticise Ed “so what?” Balls for doing it – it was a joke, parodying something which ought to be self-evidently daft.

      Perhaps so many in the modern establishment, so deeply indoctrinated with socialist thinking, can’t get the joke because so much of Hitler’s National Socialism would actually appeal to them?

          She is a Labour apologist of the first water and deserves everything she gets.

          Vile, horrible person. Wicked and malicious to the core. As evidenced by her duplicity in this matter.


          • Ollie says:

            Commenting on her duplicity is one thing, tossing around labels like ‘slag’ is simply the act of a tosser.


          • 'enry 'iggins says:

            throwing around labels like ‘tosser’ is the act of a wanker


          • LolaMae says:

            Actually, Charlotte is a lovely person who quite obviously was joking when she took this picture 3 years ago. It’s a shame this has happened and quite honestly a travesty that people like you can comment on her supposed indecency and wickedness when you’ve never met her in your life and most likely never will! So you know, I’m not a politician, I’m a lowly drama student with very little political mind, however I can take a joke when I see one.

      That’s why Labour have been careful not to say what they would actually have done.

      If the UK’s lack of involvement in the EU turns out to be successful, they will start telling us that they never said that Cameron should have signed up.

      Tessa Jowell who “Left” her crook of a husband despite claiming he was innocent. It is suspected that this little staged separation of convenience was done to circumvent the proceeds of crime act which should have been used to seize the “marital home” which we now know was purchased largely using proceeds of crime. Why is this crooked little bent lawyer not in prison yet ?

      The MP was Ian Austin and in fairness for once Bercow actually stopped him in mid flow from proceeding with the question and admonished him for it saying that “I have known the Honourable Gentleman since our university days 29 years ago and I have probably forgotten more about him that he remembers about himself….so I say to the Honourable Gentleman that this is not the time to ask this question…order order I am protecting the Honourable Gentlman and he should resume his seat !”

    Well the PM Statement was a damp squib…Cameron saw everyone off including several fulminating Labour MPs and the disastrous attempted attack by Miliband who was made to look indecisive and foolish at the same time…as for Clegg he too has seen his reputation take a hit and his absence rather tham weakening Cameron just made Clegg look petulant ..when Simon Hughes and Ming Campbell are broadly supportive of the PM’s position then Clegg hasn’t even achieved very much with his own supporters it seems…as Cameron said in answer to a question to a Labour MP regarding Clegg’s whereabouts…” I am not responsible for the Deputy PM but I’m sure he’s doing something useful “…..earlier in response to another Labour MP he said ” I would re-iterate that the government’s position was agreed beforehand with members of the Coalition…!!!

          • Engineer says:

            Maybe there was a reason for the EU regulation about straight bananas.


          • Engineer!!! Have you been watching too much BBC? ;-)


          • Engineer says:

            Certainly not, Cat. It just occurred to me that some of the continentals are rather more open-minded about these things than us up-tight and straight-laced Brits. They wouldn’t want the ladies to whom you refer suffering exotic fruit with uncomfortable curvature.


          • That is absolutely true, Engineer, and not just with the sex industry workers (or deviant vegetable consumers) but with just about all normal folk.

            On the FKK camp site down here, I am often talking to stunning women from 20s upwards. It is curious to think of it afterwards with my English hat on (as it were). Back home I would be wondering what this woman looks like under her kit and what would be my (ever slimming as I get older) chances.

            Down there you talk about all sorts of subjects whilst you forget that you both have no clothes on. Rembrandt’s brush strokes, The English legal concept of Equity and naturally quantum mechanics have all been topics of conversation this year. You keep much more eye contact and strangely (or not!) that leads to a very subconscious flirting which I know to be the case because it has been discussed as well.

            Afterwards I think, “Cor! She was gorgeous and I never lifted a finger (nor anything else…)”

            Life is strange.

    What a joke the pair of them are, and what a vile sick little hypocritical bitch this Charlotte Hale must be. Then again, what a sick joke the Labour Party is really!

    I also notice from her OPEN facebook profile that she seems to be in charge of Woverhampton Labour university association. No wonder Rob Marris deservedly lost his seat in 2010 with thick little cretins like Ms Hale working for him! Good riddance to them all!!!!

      You need a context for mockery. This is just her doing the nazi salute whilst calling for the sacking of an mp who happened to attend a party where someone dressed as a nazi. On that basis, everyone who attended the university party where Ed Balls wore an SS uniform should be sacked from whatever jobs they’re doing. And before you mention Fawlty Towers, that was John Cleese as a character in a sitcom. Not the same thing.

    before little miss charlotte hitler closed her facebook profile to public scrutiny I noticed that she also works for Ladbrokes betting shop inbetween running wolverhampton university labour students and working for the shadow minister for balls!

    Do ladbrokes approve of their employee being a nazi then?

        Yes, she’s a hypocrite. That’ll make her an idiot, but she’s only a student with, by definition, a lot to learn. Give her a break now she’s been shown up. Demonstrate a better way of doing things than the same old same old bullying Labour style ways.

          “Story about the Cannock chase TORY MP is disgraceuful. He should step down.”

          So, she thinks she (a student with a lot to learn) can dole-out advice to us?

          Well, fair enough, but she can’t complain when we tell her why she’s a useless fucking lefty cunt. Can she?

          As for the MP, he’s a professional poltiician and presmably a big enough boy to tell his critics to piss off if that is what he wants to do.

    I’m afraid I just can’t get exercised about a silly hypocritical Labour student.

    Fred Goodwin being allowed to water down a letter from the FSA to the RBS board warning about their shoddy approach to commercial lending is a different matter. It really is time that this fucking crook was brought to book – he should have done time over the BCCI liquidation, but got away with that and ended up costing the taxpayer billions.


    • 225

      Totally agree. The man was never a banker. He was an accountant. So he became a gamekeeper turned poacher. In my early days in banking, someone like him could never have got to board or CE level except, perhaps, as a non-exec. But to have his hands on the controls? Never.

      Charlie Brookers Bestiality Fantasy says:

      A recent documentary on the banking crisis revealed that the Yanks have prosecuted and jailed a number of bankers over the past few years. Over here we allow them to retire with nice pensions.
      Whilst on the subject of RBS in the light of what we now know about Goodwins reign of incompetency perhaps this tale of woe can now be seen in its proper context

      At the time this was seen as a situation which developed under a rogue Bank Manager where as now it is clear his conduct was rewarded time and time again by a Banking system out of control.
      Ladies and gentlemen I give you one of Fred Goodwins prodigys.

      Goodwin, like the Maximum Imbecile, came to believe his own publicity. Goodwin paid cash at the height of the lunacy to buy ABN-AMRO – even to the point of getting into a bidding war with Barclays. I believe the figure paid was of the order of 50bn quid. Which, remarkably, is of the order of the tax-payer bail-out. Wrong deal. Wrong time.

      My missus was pretty high up the food-chain at the time and saw these guys in action. It was like they were drugged by the thought of making the next ‘deal’. It’s all they could think of. Even after the wheels came off they were still desperate to lend billions to any fucker. Do the next ‘deal’. Any dodgy Russian with a glossy prospectus showed up and they were falling over themselves to lend them a couple of billion for a ‘buyout’ or a ‘takeover’. Far easier to make your annual numbers that way than scrabbling around lending 5 million here or 10million there.

      Same thing as happened in I*r*l*and. Far quicker and easier to lend some chancer who’d got into the property game early another 100 million to build another ghost village than to lend one thousand people 100K each.

      But none of this could have happened without the respective governments (and voters) taking leave of their senses and kidding on that this was all entirely normal and perfectly sustainable. Or, in the case of the Maximum Imbecile, destroying a perfectly good system that had worked for 150 years.

      He broke the golden rule. If it ain’t fucked – don’t fuck with it.

    Drop a Daisy cutter on the BBC says:

    What gets me about the wank Dems is they are the MINORITY in the coalition, what gives them the right to spit their dummy out when they don’t get their own way?

    The Tory right have been made to eat shit several times by Cameron to keep the Limp Dems happy, so Clegg and his mongs should just shut up and live with it.

    If they don’t like it leave and bring the Government down, they will be wiped out, which let’s be honest is the best thing that could happen to them.

    Finally how the fuck can the BBC let Liebore off answering the question, what would mong face have done?

    And what do they do when it isn’t going all their own way? They have a sulking fit and don’t turn up in parliament. If they can’t stand the heat they should not be in the Kitchen and it looks like Clegg can’t stand the heat and is refusing to go back into the kitchen.

    Why the fuss about dressing up as nazis? Why would you want to dress up as them anyway? Why the outrage? The nazis were not the only “baddies”. What if someone dresses up as Stalin or Gaddafi or Idi Amin or Harold Shipman? Will the same fuss be made? All murderers are bad.

    The Bottle Fed Triplet says:

    So tell me Mr. Pickles, why exactly do council Chief Executives get “bonuses”? Have they saved a lot of money, or have they improved the share price of the council, or have they increased the council’s profits?

    What’s that minister, the last government allowed them to equate their positions in local government with CEOs in commerce and industry?

    Maybe they should sack a few for losing money, just like in commerce and industry.

    What’s that minister, the practice is now so entrenched that it is impossible to change? Pardon? I’ll have to keep paying increasing amounts of tax to fund it? Really?

    The first moves to oust Clegg ??? says:

    Vis a vis The Disappearing Clegg…ignoring the fact of him acting like a teenage girl who’s been told that she can’t stay out late with her mates and so has stormed off to her bedroom in a hissy fit …What if ??….. Clegg has been stitched up by his LibDem colleagues in their ongoing attempts to oust him ??. Did they hold a meeting prior to Cameron’s Statement and all agree to stay away as a protest over Cameron’s veto ??…. So Clegg sequestered himself in his room as arranged(?)whilst the others Huhne(who still harbours a desire to replace Clegg),Cable,Alexander all sat prominently on the front bench near to Cameron to listen to Cameron thus making Clegg look a petulant idiot…certainly the only loser in yesterday’s event seems to be the Deputy Prime Minister over which no doubt some of his LibDem colleagues who harbour leadership ambitions are smiling to themselves over…..


  92. 277
    Cameron unable to call an election even if he wanted says:

    I wish all these Tory Supporters saying Dave should call a General Election would learn the law….he can’t…for the simple reason that the ” Fixed-term Parliaments Bill 2010-11″ passed into law 15 September 2010 and precludes him or any other Prime Minister doing so.

    The only way an election can now be called before its fixed term ends is for the government to lose a vote of confidence and even then there is 14 days in which an alternative giovernment could be formed(LibDems and Labour ?)or Cameron could carry on as a minority government on a confidence and supply basis until he’s voted down or secondly if two thirds of the House vote for an election so it’s no good Tory MPs and Supporters calling for an election

    Look it up
