Bonkers Bryn’s Latest By-Election Blunder

After Occupy tramp Bryn Phillips lied to get on the ballot at the upcoming City of London by-election, you would think he would try to stay on the right side of the law. This rioter, who was recently found guilty of violent disorder and burglary, is hilariously trying to stand on a moral platform.

He’s not too hot on the law though and failed to declare his conviction on his ballot submission.

Guido would now like to introduce him to some new legislation – Section 66 of the 1983 Representation of the People Act. That’s the bit that  that forbids “any statement relating to the way in which voters have voted at the election” being made before polls close.

So perhaps bonkers Bryn could explain his latest Twitter outpouring:

Labour MP Kerry McCarthy was cautioned for an identical crime during the last election. Either Bryn is lying, and he has not seen the postal votes, or he has broken the law. Which is it?

    Umm the “1/2″ in the tweet doesn’t mean “half” it means the first of two tweets. So he clearly does not know the result.

    Naughty Guido ;)

      Guido didn’t say anything about “1/2 the votes”, he simply pointed out that the convicted criminal has allegedly broken section 66 of the 1983 Representation of the People Act.

      No, it means “one or two”, #1 being from his mum, #2 possibly from Auntie Ada, though she thinks he’s a tosser and has probably spoiled her ballot.

        Even so, he cannot make the statement about how people have voted. And even if his meaning is unclear (which it may be), he still has to account for it …

        And there’s still the matter of whether or not statements made in his application process were entirely accurate.

        Yup the political equivalent of acne. Well strange things happen to teenagers and I suppose that socialism is among them. He is a good case however for raising the voting age back up to 21. With the education age (and therefore childhood) being raised eventually to 18 it makes sense to allow the franchise not when one leaves school but when one is actually part of society, working, paying taxes, and being engaged with politics.

        To take an alternative and more charitable view of him however; We’ve all done politically twatty things as young people, I can look back on my youthful misdemenours (such as joining the SWP for a short while) with a shudder and move on having learned important lessons. This poor bastard’s half baked political diarrhea will be visible on the internet for years and years, he is never going to be able to escape his youthful twattery.

      Bryn is a man after my own heart. It is easy to know how many postal votes you are going to get, if you are in with the asian community and other immigrant communities. Boaz.

    From what I’ve been told, that’s how the postal votes are going– yeah, that’s it, people come up to me and they tell me, “Bryn, we postal-voted for you!” Yeah, that’s the ticket! I get that all the time! Sure, that’s what I meant to say in the Tweet, innit?

    Well, anyway, that’s my story, and I’m going to stick to it, see?

    Guido must also be guilty of the same offence, since he repeats it here. Not only that, but he (Guido) actually claims knowledge of it’s veracity, whereas Bryn simply used Twitter to make a vague statement.

    Odd that Guido is seeking to link this to Maurice Glasman, who appears to be the very model of the Blue, right-wing New Laborite.
