Exclusive: Violent Rioter ‘Voids’ Square Mile Election Attempt

Despite much excitement in the Guardian this morning, the campaign to bring down the Corporation of London from the inside has not got off to a very good start for “freelance community organiser” Bryn Phillips. This former Occupy St Paul’s spokesman and close ally of Maurice Glasman is planning on standing in the upcoming by-election for the City of London Corporation council seat of Farringdon Within. However, his violent past has caught up with him…

Phillips was arrested during the riots in Hackney last summer for throwing a missile at the police. Wood Green Crown Court have confirmed that he was convicted for violent disorder and burglary and is awaiting sentence. Despite his best efforts to spin the Guardian this morning, (they claim “the case will be heard later this month”) Case S20120099 actually happened back in March. Guilty M’Lord…

In order to stand in the elections Phillips had to be awarded the Freedom of the City, something he only achieved on July 2. On the application form all previous convictions must be stated. Guido understands violent disorder and burglary would automatically rule you out from receiving the honour, and Corporation sources are adamant that a declaration of such would have triggered further investigation. It did not. Instead it is becoming increasingly likely that Phillips has voided any chance of standing in the election due to the fact he has failed to declare his convictions. Just because he has not been sentenced yet, does not mean his conviction does not stand.

Guido was ready to put these allegations to Phillips at his press conference this morning but the violent, rioting thug did not turn up for at least an hour after apparent start time. Which is just as well as given that Guildhall security had sealed off the venue and would not let anyone in…

        What is a “community organiser”? Even President Omaha claimed he was one of these – it sounds like professional trouble causer. They could have got a job in the private sector providing some good or service society needs and contributing taxes without which there is no NHS or schools. But no they went to organise the community. That same community the Guardian, BBC and Obama all want to destroy with immigr4tion.

          JH says:

          So called ‘community organisers’ organise fuck all. They’re more racist than most in claiming that differing wants and needs of many people can be homogenised into a ‘community’ based on racial membership. Just watch the faux outrage if you point that out to them though.

          All they do is marshal antagonism, using the supposed grievances of others to panic legislators into satisfying some ulterior motive.

          “Community Organisers” of the kind the Left refer to are Saul Alinsky/Cloward & Piven acolytes who believe in hectoring the System to provide, at least until the Revolution comes, as much in the way of swag as can be managed, the better to undermine the System to let it be destroyed as much by implosion as explosion. The small-scale frontline version of this strategy was immortalised by the social commentator Tom Wolfe, over forty years ago FFS, in Mau-Mauing The Flak Catchers:

          The peoblem with this is Tipi Valley is not a remote valley by any stretch of the imagination, more roads in and out that spag junction. You can often see the residents shambling through Llandeilo to sign on. Also it is minging

    Interesting Fact of Life:

    Steal millions from tax payer, share holders, economy in general and get a pat of the back, a knighthood or in worst case scenario, a dressing down from your party whip.

    I’m not condoning the actions of last Summer’s rioters but of they had jobs & stable finances or saw their politicians actually doing/saying something to benefit them – they may not have happened in the first place.

    Life was never meant to be fair but our system was intended to be just!

    The Grauniad conveniently left out the part about his having been CONVICTED of the charge that may earn him a term in jail rather than on the Council. But of course, technically-spe*aking, they have accurately stated the fact that he’s possibly going to get locked up; he will find out whether he gets thrown behind bars or not at the hearing. Of course, one would think the Grauniad groaners would be proud of the fact that Clownie is going down for “spe*aking truth to power” and “fighting back against the Man”; why, he’d be the Mandela of the twenty-teens! But true to their “taking care of their own” spin, a messy little conviction will be overlooked, lest he be unfairly stigmatised by all those out there who still might have such bourgeois tendencies as to find the word disturbing– “OMG, he’s a CONVICT!”
