Michael Meacher Backs Respect Candidate

Meacher-backed LeftFuture’s blog post titled “The unrepresented working class: a space Respect can fill” seems to have been deleted. Nothing to do with it being against Labour Party rules to back an opposing candidate. With the retirement of the politician formerly known as Viscount Stansgate, Meacher is the only authentic Bennite left in Parliament…

UPDATE: Full article by Kate Hudson of the Respect Party – their candidate for the Manchester Central by-election on 15 November uploaded by Guido here. She makes a good point about the extremely low turnout in an extremely safe Labour seat.

That is why I am standing for Respect in Manchester Central. It’s a ‘safe’ Labour seat, with 52% of the votes cast for Labour in 2010. But that figure hides a sorry tale. It also has the lowest turn out in the country at 44.5%. Labour, which has run Manchester for a long time, has not addressed the deep problems of the city or the constituency. Manchester is the fourth most deprived local authority in the country and its two most deprived wards are in Central constituency. Clearly, Labour is not working for Manchester Central. The people are making their judgment by voting with their feet, by turning away from the electoral process altogether. It’s time for a political alternative, articulating the interests of working people. Respect stands for that alternative.

Rival blogger Mark Ferguson from LabourList is quick to condemn:

    Cato Street Conspirator says:

    Meacher, the landlord who didn’t know how many properties he owned. Up the workers, eh Mickey boy?

    ‘In 1988 he lost a libel action against the journalist Alan Watkins, who had written an article in November 1984 which included the remark “Mr Meacher likes to claim that he is the son of an agricultural labourer, though I understand that his father was an accountant who retired to work on the family farm because the life suited him better.”‘

    The Paragnostic says:

    Meacher’s two sons were at Fenlands Poly with me in the early-mid 80s.

    Funnily enough, both were proto-Tories at a time when the Blessed Maggie had few friends among the undergraduates.

    I still think Meacher’s massive property portfolio should be mentioned at every possible opportunity – obviously being a Bennite does not preclude enriching ones self at public expense.

    Now that poor Winnie Johnson has died, can we have this stupid leftie legal advocate who withheld the information charged and put in prison? I’m furious that this typical bleeding heart leftie moron deliberately kept information about this poor woman’s son to herself just because Brady told her to.

    I’m sick of the way the legal system gives so much help to the most evil of criminals. Why does Brady even have a legal advocate? And what sort of pathetic bleeding heart hand wringing leftie idiot would willingly step up to the position of legal advocate to a serial child sex killer?

    I count myself as a friend of the USA. I have many friends who are American citizens. I love their can do attitude which is how I have always approached life myself.

    In late November 2001, I had booked a five week tour to the USA. After 9/11, the airline phoned me to say they would give me a full refund if I no longer wished to travel. I said Hell, no! I am not allow these people to terrorise me! Keep me booked in!

    My trip took in St Louis, California, Texas and adjoining states. I drove 7,000 miles in five weeks. It was a wonderful experience.

    Since then, I have seen the States behave like a benefits scrounger. We are entitled to do this or that because… Because we were bombed we are going to take it out on the rest of the world. I still love many of the people. But I hate their governments imperialistic pretensions.

    Can they be called ‘pretentions’ these days? Or should the States properly be described as an imperial power? They certainly seem to behave like one often enough.

    It is pretensions. And, in the manner of all drama, they do not see it that way themselves.

    Look, we are all capable of hypocrisy, I do not exclude myself from that, but these guys are on the wane and it shows. The founding fathers would weep at what they see now, IMHO.

    At least they have not signed up to Kyoto. At least they approve of fracking. They are fortunate to have discovered another 200 years of oil supply at current consumption (The Grauniad will take another 20 years to come to terms with that.) Maybe their supremacy will continue for longer than I have previously predicted.

    Their dependence on Rent Seeking explains my original post. I wish there was a better, more derogatory, term for this. But they have distorted all the good reasons for copyright and patent and magnified the bad, indefensible ones.

    Michael Meacher and his poor workers rights do not belong in the same sentence.
    Meacher is a champagne socialist of the worst order with his property portfolio,who tries to put it across to the worker that he is on their side.
    The man is an utter hypocritical tosspot of the highest order,but the sad thing is that he has liebour bedwetters believing him,although this is hardly a surprise given their mentality.

  130. 130
    Alan Watkins says:

    Mr Meacher is best known for his unsuccessful libel claim against me and the Observer. He was revealed to be a public school boy (Berkhampstead) whose parents employed a maid and hosted bridge parties. His claim to be the son of an argiculturlal labourer was shown to be entirely bogus. A truly prize cnut.

    Handycock, Head of planning, Portsmouth says:

    Your immigration policies were spot on Gordon and it was a stroke of genius to get RBS to provide the unsecured loans to the property developers to provide housing for them and Natwest (subsidiary of RBS) to offer to repossess those properties if the developers went bust. All in all the British sub prime crisis; fortunately the press never found out about it, thank God, otherwise my boys would not have been able to launder their drug profits, and they and I would not have been able to get very rich. Thank goodness for your taxpayer bailout of the banks, once again well done Gordon. Boaz.

    Kate Hudson doesn’t go far enough.

    Labour did not merely fail to address the ‘deep problems of the city or the constituency’. NuLab actively worked against the interests of the working class it exists to serve. When it was not cosying up to the rich, continuing and worsening Thatcherite policies, it was busy flooding the nation with immigrants.

    However she is entirely wrong to suppose that it will be the white-haters of ‘Respect’ that will ultimately benefit from this. Far more likely to be the-party-that-must-not-be-named.

    The Lesson unto Noo (Utterly Befuddled) Progressive Cons is taken from the Book of Dave, Chapter 94 says:

    1. And there came a time when Dave, even he that usurped the title of Leader, saith unto his scribes and jobsworths: Lo, I am an tired and weary. For have I not done much that is for mine own good in the manner of that of a loyal servant of Rumpydom. And do I not deserve rest, and refreshment? Yeah even that of the chillax?

    2. And the scribes and jobsworths of Dave lifteth up their voices and answered and said: yeah, O noble and gracious Lord. For, in thine inestimable wisdom thou knowest the secrets of our hearts, that shouldest make haste, and go unto a far place wherein to take thine ease and rest.

    3. And Dave, being full of conceit and little else, bade his servants and handmaidens to gather together his tents and chattels, yeah, even also that which amuseth him, and bringeth comfort unto his inner parts, yeah, even unto his brane.

    4. And Dave went unto a far place, and sojourned there. And sought to set at naught those things troubleth his heart, yeah even those things that he should have done, but had not done.

    5. For be it well known, that Dave had done those things he ought not to have done, and not done those things that he ought to have done. And there was no health in him, neither contentment.

    6. And there came upon the earth a sound like unto a mighty rushing wind. And it filled the whole earth, and the people hushed and listeneth.

    7. And there came forth a mighty voice, yeah like unto a great storm that troubleth the seas. And the voice sayeth, Bestir thyself, Doeth Something Useful, – yeah, rouse thyself and do that which is of benefit to the people, and cease being like unto a creature that creepeth about by night in search of rats and pestilence.

    8. But bestir thyself. Go forth. Be bold. Labour mightily as thou shouldest upon the earth.

    9. And Dave trembled and groanéd and was an feared: For he knew in his heart he could not, neither had he strength nor wit.

    Here endeth the Levyson and all other costly, useless endeavours and gravytrains.

    Your Friendly Neighbourhood Voter Fraud Busters Service says:

    THAT long?
    The Democrats in the US want to gut State laws that mandate photographic ID at polling stations to insure that the person doing the voting is who (s)he says (s)he is. This is to prevent people from Latin America not eligible to vote as non-citizens, many of whom are in the country unlawfully, from impersonating anyone who is, as we say, no longer on the mortal coil, or at any rate no longer resident in that particular electoral district. (A smaller version of the problem exists for Asiatics.) Of course, the Dems spin it as an attempt to hold down the votes of African-Americans, whose voting rights were curtailed (by Dems!) in a bygone era. Of course there is no basis for this charge, as Bl*ack Americans in overwhelming numbers HAVE the required ID or can get it easily, but when this is shown, the response is usually of a “look over there!” variety. It’s obvious what’s going on, but the naked emperor resorts to the last refuge of a scoundrel and cries “Ra*ci*st!”

    I’ve just cum over a beef & tomato pot noodle. It reminded me of an experience I once had in Cape Cod.

    In sooth, thou spe*akest verily, but mayhap thou couldst brush up a bit on thine Elizabethan/early Stuart. ‘Tis an excellent taking of the piss out of Master Cameron but for an howler or six in the telling thereof. I bid thee well in any event but I would thou didst heed mine advice, my good man.

    Anybody who is working class, i. e. works for a living, is out of his mind if he now supports the Labour party.

    The Sheikh Of Arabeeee says:

    Look at the fucking Leftie arsewipes outside the Ecuadorean embassy.

    Fucking blethering and pontificating away, fucking lost in sel-delusion, fucking trumpeting the cause of a fucking narcissistic sex pest and a fucking dago shithole.

    Fucking jizzwads.

    Aunty Matter it isnt Your parliament its The British parliament. Fuckwit.

    Bluebird says:

    Yup I noticed that as well. Definitely a left overbalance there. Jones looks like a private school sixth former playing at being a working class lefty.

    Cressida's Dick says:

    I wish a reporter would just go round and ask each of them ‘and what do you do for a living?’. The words ‘fuck all/benefits ‘ would figure high on the response list.

    The Paragnostic says:

    You seem to be piqued, young bigot watcher.

    Maybe you should return to your piss-soaked park bench and have a wee swallae o’ Bucky.

    The sooner we are rid of the chippy pissheads with their grasping hands taking the Barnett formula shilling the better.

    The Paragnostic says:

    The support of leftist idiots does not change the facts – that Assange has been poorly served by the British judicial system, which should never allow extradition for the purpose of answering questions.

    If the Swedes were serious, they would send their investigators here to ask whatever questions they want, and if they consider the evidence enough for a charge, apply for extradition. The fact that they have not implies to me that they are taking the piss and do not have a justice system worthy of the name – just another variation on the piss-poor Napoleonic system.

    British Parliament, so why does every other part of the UK get its own except England then?

    But respect are even more anti white working class than Labour!!

  256. 256 says:

    Why don’t the police get a big fucking truck and park it in front of the balcony?

  257. 257 says:

    Because thanks to the liblabcon trio the EU, Scotland and Wales treat the English like idiots.

    Bill Haig says:

    Good idea. Here in Westminster we’re used to cherry-picking at the law to suit our own ends.

    The Sheikh Of Arabeeee says:

    Assange is fucking full of shit.

    He talks about protecting journalism- any respectable journo protects his sources. Assange does nothing of the fucking sort- he just publishes the information and the consequences don’t fucking matter.

    The Paragnostic says:

    I’m not contesting that Assange is full of shit – he’s not pretending to be a journalist, though – just a conduit for whistleblowers.

    Even arseholes deserve a fair crack when it comes to the law, which is manifestly not the case here.

    if god is the work of the imagination, then where does our imagination come from….our collective unconsciouness? if god is a conscious or unconscious human need, then why so? there is great creativity in our unconsciouness…the stuff of dreams. when we take on board the message of our nightime dreams, our dreams change.
    perhaps god is us when we become perfect…until then “i have dream” who knows! all the best.

    Oh God! Are you old enough to remember him, Para? He was more in the gutter than out of it. Lord George Brown. Pah!

    As a follower of Aristotle, I am a believer in his acclaimed Mean. It does not cast you as a fence sitter, as some would say. One can be right wing in business approach and Low Tax – Small Government, Liberal in individual freedoms and tolerant of others, up to a point. But you do not have to follow any political propaganda.

    I have spoken to many people today, on my Adriatic camp site, who share exactly the same values.

    Madonna Ciccone (The Real Lady Gaga) says:

    Kate Hudson changed her name to Kate Parry as David Jones became David Bowie as she did not want the “brands” to be confused much like Mary Jackson does not want to be confused with Polly Toynbee

    Thatcher abolished taxes for the rich but increased them via the deceitful dodge of increased National Insurance for people working for a living; invented the wheeze of shoving as many unemployed as possible onto sickness benefits to hide the truth about the unemployment fugures; signed up for the Single European Act, the Maastrict Treaty, and the ERM all of which meant unchecked immigration and fucked the economy.

    Now get back to your wanking.
