Labour Orders Whole HQ to Rotherham

The pressure on Labour’s struggling Rotherham campaign has clearly not let up. Orders went out yesterday evening for HQ staff to completely decamp to the seat:

Where possible I want as many staff from our London head office to try and help in Rotherham. Given the distance, we are asking people to go up Wednesday, stay the night and be ready to get the vote out on Thursday.

Guido has a feeling that both the bookies and Labour are being over-cautious after the Bradford blindsiding, but the feedback on the ground can hardly be very positive if a broke party are pulling out every stop to try and retain what should be a very safe seat. All together now R-E-S-P-E-C-T…

    Be afraid, be very afraid. Ed Balls approves the apointment of Mark Carney.

    I find it impossible to believe that there were no capable Brits available and I am rather sceptical of those who believe only foreign blood can do the job.

    We have been through this before when Micheal Edwards was imported in from South Africa by a Labour government to save British leyland as and look what happened then.

    So why the fook should I a taxpayer or a business in the form of an insurance company be forced to subsidise the folly of those who live on flood plains or beside rivers which are prone to flooding because their ability to take a flood surge have been destroyed by development?

    And why is it compulsory for TV reporters to stand in a flood with brown dirty water all around him while the rest of the crew are on dry land with no floods behind them?

    Joyce would you like a job in Portsmouth? You are obviously a professional local government officer with finely tuned political instincts, just the sort of professional we need down here. We have lots of immigrants and asylum seekers that I am proud to acknowledge that I have personally been responsible for bringing in. This would make your job most demanding, placing many of their children in politically correct foster homes. You will be well remunerated, about twice the salary of the Prime Minister plus pension add ons, and be working a 30 hour week with three months a year paid holiday. It will be necessary, as part of your terms of reference that you place them in foster homes that the parents rent from my boys, otherwise you will have a free reign. Please contact me in a week’s time when I will be back from important business in St Petersburg. Boaz

    Another Engineer says:

    I agree with most of that, although if the planning authorities were liable (personally) for costs due to stupid decisions then perhaps some of this would stop.

    You do have to remember, however, that there will be houses now being flooded that previously did not, because of changes to the catchment upstream, and not through any fault of theirs.

  53. 53
    Grumpy Old Man says:

    There are doubtless some very capable bankers of UK origin, but they have all been covered with the shit from the Brown-led Banking Disaster of 2008 and it’s fall-out so lack credibility. At least Mr. Carney is not an Enarque, but I have a suspicion he may be Keynes-led. Hopefully he is well-enough read to take into account that Keynes recommended QE from a position of surplus, not from a position of deep do-do which is Gordon’s legacy to the nation. We shall see.

    Interesting you mention Edwards.
    Another leading South African, chairman of a major corporation, surprisingly left for the UK. He lived in London and joined a prestigious golf club.
    Cutting comment on him at the club was that he was a giant in South Africa and a midget in the club.
    Carney is international so this should not apply to him. Would you rather have an idiot like Balls in power as the Chancellor or as the head of the Bank of England? Hope not.

    Similar to Bath & North Somerset jobsworths recently erecting speed de-restriction signs at the top of a 1 in 4 steep single track narrow lane which also has a tight bend at the top.

    Gideo says:

    Most of the houses being flooded right now were not built on flood plains. Many of those flooded are now under water because houses were built (and continue to be built) on flood plains. The water has nowhere else to go other than swamping houses that have been there for years and never suffered flooding before.

    This situation will only get far worse with Cameron and Osborne’s determination to alllow unrestrained house building all over the countryside to accomodate the millions of immigran ts coming here over the next few years.

    Osborne seems to think this will add to our GDP!!

    Have you seen the latest wheeze from Dave “I won’t wage war on the motorist” Camoron? Road tolls. He takes £46billion every year from motorists, spends only £4billion of that money on roads, and now says he’s planning to fleece us for more of our money, probably involving a Big Brother surveillance system, so beloved of the scum in the Labour Party.

    Dave’s Conservative Party is Labour with a different name.

    1 their MP was forced to resign for being a thieving Hunt
    2 the UKIP adoption scandal
    3 the cover up of child rape by cultural enrichers

    those who voted should be roundly condemned in the Commons as a disgrace to the country.

    Send Milliband senior and let him explain to the good people of Rotherham how to earn £15k per day.

    Blair, Brown et al should all turn up and explain how to flip houses, prepare false invoices, acquire a property portfolio of ~ £12m starting with a small flat in North London is 12 years.

    I am sure everyone on benefits and minium wage in south Yorkshire will be fully appreciative of the advice.

  68. 68
    Another Engineer says:

    Ed doesn’t seem to be able to find South Yorkshire, despite his constituency supposedly being there.

    He’s got absolutely nothing in common with the locals of Doncaster, so why they vote for him I’ve got no idea.

    The same mentality as in Rotherham next door, I suppose.

  69. 69 says:

    Interview on Toady this a.m. with Carney’s old economics tutor at Oxford, who got in a wonderful parting shot about Carney being aware of the responsibilities that “Gordon Brown misguidedly believed he had abolished” — made me chortle, anyway.

    Who gives a shit if our politicians fiddle their expenses and create pretend public sector pretend jobs for their supporters.

    The BoE will keep forging money as required.

    The most racist party in Rotherham is, of course, the oddly named “Respect” party.
    Their candidate is an ethnically white Englishwoman who converted to Islam.
    George Galloway has exhorted Muslims to vote for her, saying that she is “pure” in the Islamic sense and thus deserves their support.
    Given that, in Rotherham, there are few ethnically white Muslims, but many ethnically P**ist**i Muslims, is this not a clear indication of vote gathering on a racial basis?

    Cornwallis says:

    I was told by my boss to take part in one of their year courses early 90’s (he wanted to ingratiate himself with the local authority). There were I think four of us from the private sector out of 20-we had all withdrawn from it after a month, seeing it as not only a waste of time and badly organised but also because of the brainwashing element.

    This left a ragbag of public sector people, self-appointed loudmouth community leaders (eg local muslim group), charity and voluntary sector people-course fees paid for by the local authority.Needless to say they all got on like a house on fire and ‘graduated’.

    As I remember it, CP was based on a scheme from the USA, which was designed to bring together likely future business/civic leaders within their cities to show them how their cities functioned and to involve them in its future. Good concept, but like so many things it got distorted by the UK’s left/liberal elite into something totally different and malign.

    Deep Froat says:

    Frankly there is no point in anyone in Rotheram getting out of bed to vote. The Postal Votes are already being manufactured and Labour won three weeks ago with 127.67% of the available votes.

    It’s sad but I can’t see anything happening other than the dumb people in Rotherham meekly ticking the box alongside the Labour candidate on the voting paper. Trouble is, Labour is so ingrained into them, they can’t break their habits.

    A few years ago I went on a Charity training course.

    It was like spending a a day in a N Korean re-education camp.

    A militant Guardianista woman told us about inequality and all that tosh.

    Finally (and this really is a true story) a Turkish woman could stand it no longer. She stood up and said.

    ‘This is a great country, anyone who wants to can work and succeed here’.

    There was silence, no one dared speak lest they fail the course, she sat down, and the Marxist propaganda started up again.

    My one day experience of Socialism in action.

    Of course – I didn’t work for the Charity – which was nothing more than a Marxist-front group, as so many of them are.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
