Labour Keep it in the Family

Things are getting a bit too close to comfort up in Warrington as Labour councillor Chris Vobe last night tabled a motion calling on his colleagues to “commend the efforts of Warrington North MP Helen Jones“.

Could Cllr Vobe’s enthusiasm for blowing his local MP’s trumpet have something to do with the fact that she’s his mum?


  1. 1

    Nepotism is only bad if the evil baby-eating Tories are doing it. If it’s a Leftie, it’s demonstrating a committment to family values.

          • Typical champagne sociopath

            Get into power, smear and spread untruths to stay in power. Tony Blair’s first concern when made Prime Minister was to be re-elected. Miliband’s first words when made leader were “I will fight 24 hours a day and 7 days a week until we are back in No. 10″. It’s all about power as Ken Livingstone proved in the mayoral election, they will even attack their own party to get in office.

            Everyone can see the disaster that was brought by Blair, Brown, Mandelson, Balls, Cooper, Straw, Falconer, Miliband, Hain, Harman, Abbott, Burnham, Byrne, TWatson, Khan. And yet we still have serial apologists like Mike White, Poly, McGuire, Marr, Toenails and Humphreys supporting Labour’s discredited corner.

            Over 13 years in power, Labour did not manage to deliver even one of their five core principles

            • social justice
            • strong community and strong values
            • reward for hard work
            • decency
            • rights matched by responsibilities

            Dave, Nick, George and Danny appear to be little better than a headless corpse, but at least they understand Liam Byrne wasn’t joking when he wrote “”I’m afraid there is no money left” and at least they are better than what we had.

            So if all the new schools and hospitals that “Labour built” are actually PFI, and we are paying fo them now out of current taxation, what exactly did Blair and Brown do with all the money?

            What have we actually got to show for 13 years of tax-and-spend?


          • Mike Hunt says:

            Where did the money go?

            1,000,000 potential Liebour voters put on the payroll, with matching benefits and pensions.

    Mother: That’s what they want.
    Child: Who’s they, and why do they want it?
    Mother: ‘They’ are the politicians (the LibLabCon), Common Purpose, the E U, the corporate capitalists, the Ad men, the unions, The Greens, most of the educationalists, most of the MSM, including the BBC, which is most of the MSM; and they all want it that way because it keeps them where they are and separated from us.
    Child: I don’t want to be confused.
    Mother: That’s why you have to think for yourself.
    Child: How do I do that with all those institutions trying to confuse me?
    Mother: It’s not easy, but while you are still a child it’s up to me and your father to protect you from lefty progressive thinking and put you on the right road by trying to instil in you some common sense.

    Anyone watch Newsnight last night? The whole programme was devoted to a debate on Europe. It was good stuff. Farage was on. Debating a referendum, he said many like him didn’t get a say last time round. A member of the public in the studio audience made a twat of himself by accusing Farage of having been too lazy to vote. Farage replied “I was 11, it would have been a bit difficult for me to vote”. Even Paxo was on good form. An Italian on the panel said America was to blame for the failure of the Euro. He said “What utter tripe. It had nothing to do with America.”
