Labour Corby Campaign Cock-Up

Last week Guido revealed that Labour campaign chief Tom Watson had been busy massing the troops in Corby as party bosses seek to avoid a repeat of their Bradford nightmare. Watson might have dragged half of Labour HQ’s staff with him to Louise Mensch’s old constituency but their plan to hit the ground running has got off to a slow start. Back on the 9th August a helpful tweeter alerted Labour’s holidaying hopeful Andy Sawford to the fact that he had yet to set up a website for his campaign. Sawford promised he would get on the case:

Almost a week later Labour have sent out a press release encouraging constituents to visit their candidate’s brand new website, but when they do this is what they find:

Guido wonders what Watson and co have been up to the past six days…

    90% of people who would vote Labour don’t know what a website is so no cause for panic there.

    Thank you, I might do that, I have time on my hands. Under the Lieing NuLiebor Mass Education program, I am highly edjucated, I have: ABE ABssu ACL NCVQ I passed my NCTs helped with a few READs in the early days I had some help from the IYSS which led to some YTS helped by the YIST I swiftly reached my VRQ I even rubbed shoulders with some G&T girls and guys, hoping something would rub off on me, in the end via a list of GCSEs as long as your arm I am unemployed, more importantly, unemployable.

    Although I am told that the taxpayer might fund a PTLLS course and even maybe a DTLLS so there is hope!

    But I do despise pork pie Watson, his chums and the entire Lieing edifice that is Nu NuLiebor and all that the corrupt and stinking party stand for!

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
