Union Funded Labour MPs Organising Against Pilgrim Vote

After his OpEd in the Telegraph this morning, Tory MP Jesse Norman will put down at 10 Minute Rule Bill against Pilgrims immediately after PMQs on Wednesday:

Ten minute Rule Motion: Jesse Norman: Trade Union Officials (Refund of Pay to Employers): That leave be given to bring in a Bill to provide that pay for hours worked on behalf of trade unions by trade union officials during hours when they are paid by an employer should be refunded to the employer by the trade union; and for connected purposes.

Success with a 10 Minute Rule Bill is rare, but it should be a good reminder for the government about this issue in the run up to their promised consultation. Cameron has pledged to scrap taxpayer-funded trade union activity so it would be embarrassing for him if it were to fall. The union funded Labour MPs are having their thumbs screwed by the brothers to organise against the vote:

From: LLOYD, Tony
Sent: 05 January 2012 14:25
Subject: Ten Minute Rule Bill next Wednesday after PMQs

Dear Colleague,

You may be aware that the Conservative backbencher Jesse Norman MP is introducing a Ten Minute Rule Motion on Wednesday 11th January. It will be opposed by Labour MPs in the Chamber and it would be useful if you could be around to vote against. Its timing is subject to statements and PMQs but it will be the first piece of business after 12.30.


Tony Lloyd MP
Manchester Central

What Tony doesn’t mention in his email is that he is the chairman of the Trade Union Group of Labour MPs.

The group greases the wheels for unions to manipulate legislation. They seem to be getting their money’s worth today…

    Using the Public Sector as a job creation scheme is not growth. Bankrupting the Nation in an orgy of crony capitalism to save financial institutions for party-political purposes is not growth either. Labour is not trusted with the economy, and statements like Dr. Clarke’s show the reason why.

    Handycock Phd (Troughing) says:

    Absolutely right Jane, that is what taxes are all about. These campaigns to stop MP’s, Members of the Lords and the public sector from troughing will come to nothing. My old flatmate Bob Russel has been knighted for troughing and I am extremely annoyed about it, as it should have been me. I have been troughing for far longer and much deeper that Bob ever did. Perhaps they are lining me up for a peerage? I will have to talk to the Grand Master about it. Boaz.

    People who don’t like jobs?

    I reckon that’s the only people who still vote for Labour. You’re preaching to the convalescent there.

    Ed and his fellow MPs have very distant memories of what hard work is, if they have ever done any. For them, these lazy Pilgrims seem like real grafters

    Berk's Peerage says:

    Yes, Brother, you are being considered for a Life Peerage. We believe your “barony” should be one named after a town on the South Coast. Thus, we believe you will be styled “Baron Hancock of Bognor.” “Lord Bog” seems somehow felicitously apt.

    MPs should stae when they come into parliament who was backing them, failure to disclose and if it is found out that they have omitted a backer they should lose their seat without an appeal

    I Remember You Hoo says:

    Anyone who seriously imagines that the agenda of the coalition is any different from Labour, both old and new, is in need of care in the community. At every turn the argument is not about policy, but how it should be managed.

    Where are Tony Blair's Expenses says:

    Agree Cameron is a blow hard, sound bites, key note speeches but no actions. Add to you list his latest wheezes, rolling back the Health and Safety Culture and making people work for their benefits.

    Margaret Moran's lawyer says:

    Yes, my client is indeed distressed. The thought of being punished for stealing £60,000 from the working class is making her ill. She will not be ill if she is not punished, therefore I argue she be acquitted on health grounds.

    Plus, she’d like to keep the money, if that’s OK.

    Really? says:

    The site appears to have been rendered into English using something like Google Translate – how else to explain solecisms like ‘calcifying the containers’?

    Leeches never really went away; they are bred commercially by the Danes and ‘milked’ for the anticoagulants in their saliva. A search on Google reveals that ‘leech fat’ has rather more, ahem, ‘intimate’ uses.

    Steep drop. says:

    They are NOW very aware that their time is limited within the
    political sphere, so you have Tony Blair (multi-millionaire),the ugly
    guy who supposedly created ‘new labour’ (sorry,name escapes me)
    ‘got a small pile’ on Regents park (minted).
    On my mothers grave i hope they all get the justice they deserve.

    Really? says:

    Try this link.

    My first impression is that it takes the form of the kind of ‘meta analysis’ which our beloved Royal National Health Service uses to decide whether a new drug delivers the kind of bang per buck which merits approval by NIHCE.

    The percentages it quotes refer to self-selected groups of unknown size and affiliation, raising my suspicions further.

    Their essential problem for the study is to disprove the widespread thinking that disability benefits have mushroomed as successive governments have tried to massage unemployment figures downwards.

    Have a read and see whether you think they have proved their point.

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.”
