Red on Red: Watson Attacked as “Labour’s Mafia Boss”

The fallout continues. Labour colleagues are pointing more fingers at Watson:

“It looks like Watson may have overplayed his hand here. Its difficult to see how Siôn Simon is going to come out of this well and if MPs do make it on to the ballot paper its  going to look like a defeat for them. In 24 hours they’ve managed to give shadow cabinet member Liam Byrne the outsider/underdog status which can only help his campaign. 

 Watson tried to reinvent himself for the new politics era but he’s let the mask slip. He walks around with a halo on calling for more transparency in the media one moment and then be doing secret back room deals half an hour later. He’s the fixers fixer, in many ways he’s like Kevin Rudd in Australia. He complains about “invisible voices” and “faceless men”, but they are him. He called James Murdoch a mafia boss, but it takes one to know one, he’s Labour’s mafia boss”

Labour sources point to the fact normally “the General Secretary would have stepped in by now to sort out this mess,” but Iain McNicol is “an ineffective lightweight with no authority”.

Tempers are flaring…

 

UPDATE: A former Labour SpAd twists the knife:

“This is now going to turn into a ‘stop Sion’ campaign. Watson, what a genius. Doing for Sion what he did for Gordon…”

        So whats new? Whats the difference between the Eaton Mafia or the Libour Mafia or the Liber Mafia. NOTHING.

        With the amount of theft of capital being sucked out of the economy by the Mafia class, we will see complete and total collapse of economy.. Not long now till the Public sector pensions wont be being paid. Its fu-king great to see these over educated fraudster turn everything they touch into Sh-t. Thats what happens when they are all educated in the same way by the same education system. Shame some people have the answer but will never be asked.

        Guardian reader, foaming at the mouth says:

        Errrr no, Tom Watson is a deeply respected campaigner for freedom and transparency who helped expose the racism and anti-Labour bias of the Sun. It is thanks to Tom’s tireless work that we will soon have a special journalist approval board where anyone who is found to be hacking, criticising universal socialist principles and creating racism by telling the public that immigration levels are too high (we all know they are too low) will not be allowed to publish articles. Finally!

        Guido looks silly in criticising such a respected person. He should watch the BBC news to get his views modernised.

      Before Snowball & Napoleon squeak to you here is a message from our Beloved Dear Leader

      All devoted citizens of the State are expected to down tools, ploughs and Ken’s Little Red Book and watch the Red Channel tonight – our loyal Socialist State Voice of the People – and see the Red Kenneth Show or PPB – fashioned by our Comrades from France.

      Congratulations to Comrade Kenneth, who has successful won the Mayoral Election in May! All proxy voters in Tower Hamlets will be awarded the Hero of the People medal.

      Release the Mirror motorman files Guido. That would wipe the smile of this f*t useless f*_cks face. Reckon Dumb Fatson will fancy going on (and on and on and on and on) about the evil doings of his bezzie mates at the Mirror for the next 10 years? Me neither. It’s about the only way Levenson will be turned into anything other than a biased political show-pony. Also the only way we’ll get this monster to shut the f*_ck up about it.

      Reading Guido these days you’d swear that Labour were still in power which, if you consider Dave’s policies, I guess they are.

      Either way it’s becoming boring to read all this labour focused tittle tattle when Dave and his cohorts are ably fuckin up the oHuntry on their lonesome.

      These people are trying to rig elections, spending their time dreaming up elaborate ways to place their cronies into high office. Shouldn’t they be worrying about the poor or replacing Ed Miliband?

      Remember, we saw the consequences when Brown and Blair spent time infighting. Illegal wars, ruined economy, widespread waste whilst these two were busy trying squabbling.

    But never the less, a vote for any of the 3 major parties is still a vote for a United States of Europe. By voting for them you are supporting their EU policies.

    The UK will never ever get a referendum on the EU, they will lie through their back teeth but never give in to a referendum and still take you into a political union with Germany.

    When will you understand that it is your votes that are giving credence to their EU policies?

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
