Whatsa Matter EU?
Labour Euro Candidates Are Failed Italian Politicians

Six-figure salaries, generous expenses and first class seats on the gravy train to Brussels, no wonder there were hundreds of applicants to become Labour candidates for the European Parliament. As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Sun column, two of their London candidates are Ivana Bartoletti, who in 2007 was elected to the Italian parliament in Rome, and Andrea Biondi, an unsuccessful candidate for the Italian parliament in January. His campaign website is still in Italian and he has yet to replace the Italian socialist party logo with the Labour Party’s logo.

Ed says he wants more ordinary working class candidates, so it seems odd that Labour wants to send two academic Italian political insiders to represent London’s interests in Brussels. Couldn’t they find any Brits good enough to do the job?

    Plus we can now see for sure that Labour have no intention of giving us a referendum. When is the Labour Party going to grow up and engage in grown up politics instead of a constant stream of juvenile bull?

    Give us our referendum and get rid of these useless troughers.

    A braincell for Jimmy, please! says:

    Because they’re foreign, they work for foreign political parties, they’ve never lived in England, they’re supposed to represent us in the EU but they’re, er, foreign members of foreign political parties.

    Doesn’t Labour have any British candidates? One or two? No?

    So when Labour want to fill a job, they immediately look abroad for an immigrant.

    That bodes well..

    Why would a true and loyal European like Miliband (or Clegg or Cameron) distinguish between Italian and British nationality. They regard us all as “European” citizens, so what difference would it make to them.

    The candidates mentioned have the advantage for Ed of being female – much to be preferred to men?

    Its not Milliband who calls the tune about candidates its Red Len McClusky,so ots no surprise that two Uber Italian Socialists are on the ticket Londenors take note.

    Had a bizzare dream last night, that Niels Bohr the nobel prize winning physicist was my grandfather, since there is a biot, AHEM!, question who was actually my grandfather, since it seems my grandmother got preggers away or over xmas leave in early 1932, and she got married eight months gone to my “grandfather”. So the question is there. Thought about doing DNA tests in the family, but that would spread my suspicions. Think my Auntie Betty won’t mind, my mother’s sister, though. She no doubts thinks the same, since we do tend to think the same. There is no doubt my other grandfather is my grandfather, due to family resemblance, I hope, but still maybe, since he is an eldest child too. DNA, do you do it or don’t you – that is the question.

    ‘A job’ is normally held to be an occupation which requires work and effort. People with ‘jobs’ pay for their travelling and their lunches out of what HMRC leaves them once it has taken its cut and used it to support people without ‘jobs’.

    MEPs – and MPs – do not properly understand the concept of a ‘job’.

    The Labour party will do anything for effect. When are they going to engage in grown up politics for people who struggle in the real world? When are they going defend their rights instead of engaging in endless nonsense. The people in this -one nation pap- who want a referendum are in the majority. Give us a referendum. I take it they have dumped the British jobs for British people mantra. All lies anyway.

They should be paid an enormous amount to do their good works, and treated with unquestioning respect.

    Yes, there will be those among you who will point out that they know two things – fuck and all – about the commerce, industry and social institutions over which they expect sweeping power.

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.”
