Reed Refuses to Run Properly for Fear of Losing

Labour’s newly selected by-election candidate for Croydon North is clearly not very confident about his victory chances. Lambeth Council Leader Steve Reed has announced that he will not resign his position unless he wins the nearby seat. The hard-working people of Lambeth will be paying for Reed to campaign for the Labour Party rather than representing them.

Then again, anyone who has ever come across Steve and his work will know that campaigning for Labour rather than representing the people has always been his mantra – not least with his poster campaign against government cuts that was paid for at the expense of other local services. Facile largire de alieno…

    Is this the same Reed leader of Lambeth Council where

    (wiki)

    Salters Hill and after

    “Jonathan Greatorex became famous for his legal action against Lambeth Council following the “Salters Hill Scandal”[1] where he exposed a £750,000 parking scam within the London Borough of Lambeth. The case against Lambeth ended up with Greatorex recovering costs in the County Court, following the Parking Adjudicator’s ruling that Lambeth had acted “Wholly Unreasonably”[2] in pursuing the case.”

    It also seems that this council was employing illegals…

    And he wants to be an MP

    We know what to expect…

      Apologies for commenting on the actual topic that Guido posted, but people may recall that Boris Johnson campaigned for the London Mayorship while he was still a Conservative MP. He didn’t resign as an MP until he was actually Mayor.

          Suspect to Judge, “The media and interwebs have been splashing my identity and turning juries against me, yer honour. There’s no chance of a fair trial.”

          Judge to suspect, “You’re right. You’re free to go, but don’t do it again.”

          If the persons suspected of vile acts really did take part in said vile acts, they need to be brought to book for them. Their victims deserve nothing less. Anything that gives them a sniff of a get-out clause needs to be gaurded against – and that includes people possibly prejudicing trials. If there people in high places trying to cover up, don’t give them any ammunition.

The outcome is the same, the fastest gets to live. This is how politics work. We all know that the EU is corrupt, the MP are corrupt and the rest of the institutions are there to protect them. It is only necessary to show that everyone is equal bad.

        They can be murders, and thugs and the situation will not change.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.
