Voters Warn Labour Expenses Piggy Not to Run

Earlier this month Guido revealed that expenses scandal piggy Joan Ryan was begging her local Labour party for support as she tries to run again in 2015. That despite being kicked out by the electorate after claiming £4,500 for work on her second home and having to pay back over £5,000 in mortgage interest. As if having the nerve to show her face in Enfield North again wasn’t enough, now she has been accused of trying to stitch up the Labour selection in neighbouring Enfield Southgate; Guido is told she brought along dozens of new members to the local CLP’s AGM in order to back her pal Ibrahim Dogus. Guido has repeatedly asked Ryan why she is sticking her oar in but for some reason she doesn’t want to talk. Her own former constituents have certainly had enough. This is from her local paper’s letter page this morning:

You’d have thought she would get the message…

      She is a lefty. Not only does she not know any better, she does not want to know any better.

        Mervin King says:

        Why does she openly reveal she plagiarised a Daily Mail article?? – If Labour had invented the scheme she’d be licking Browns sphincter?

        Class hatred at its finest. Silly bint.

      Lure? well it sounds like a trap doesn’t it.

      Its not as if the housing sector could ever look like a wierd pyramid selling scam, where one constantly needs to get more and more people involved with funny government schemes. Well, not for those without piss coloured spectacles.

        Swivel Eyed Socialist says:

        It was only a short time ago she was attacking the Tories because young people couldn’t afford to buy property.

        There’s no pleasing the Welfare Party and its lefty press.

          SP4 BS says:

          You know more about this person than me. and you seem rather on with that old tired tribalism thing.

          Gordon brown was trying to shove more people onto the housing “ponzi scheme” too – I wouldnt have chosen to use those words myself, but I’m pretty sure guido regulars have said such things regularly.

          Are you able to drop the tribal narritive for a few seconds to say whether its a good idea to make credit easier in order to feed in to an overpriced housing market? (and I didn’t attempt to make the parallels with Brown years policy).

          It isn’t actually making housing more affordable either is it? Just trying to tip the balance of people’s decisions in favour of taking out big loans?

          • Cameron, yesterday's man says:

            When Agenda 21 is implemented, you won’t be allowed to own your own house.

            For those that haven’t read Agenda 21, it actually states that ‘private ownership of housing is not a good thing’ and then goes on to state that this must be rectified.

            It also says in the usual EU/UN/Political speak roundabout way, that car ownership is not good either.

            And if you don’t believe that they are working away at it, put the name of you local council and agenda 21 in to Google to see for yourself.

          • M­aq­bo­ul says:

            People have to live somewhere. Either they buy their own property or they rent. Seems you don’t want people to have the choice.

          • Questioner says:

            Agenda 21? Indeed, I did put that and my council’s name in and sure enough there is a large document. Including the phrase ‘all councils are required to define an Agenda 21′. Very menacing…

      Chuka Umunna's Nationalised Trust aka CUNT says:

      So what is a small firm?
      Will the EU make the Bank of Chuka lend across Europe?
      If the loans go sour will the taxpayer pick up the bill?
      Is this another bank that will not be allowed to fail?
      Will president Barroso let you do it anyway?

      • 30
        SP4 BS says:

        small firm. less than 50 people. the whole “SME” idea is imported from france.

        Where the disadvantages of being a “big firm” are bad enough to mean that very many firms have precisely 49 employees.

      Investment in Business is not Rocket Science says:

      All you have to do is cut VAT back to 10%. Small businesses all over the country will find that instead of 20% of their turnover/cashflow being earmarked to pay the taxman at any one time, they will only need to hold 10% to hand over. They will have immediate funds available to invest in themselves.

      Steve Miliband says:

      What does that actually mean?

        It means more corruption and places on quango boards for business bureaucrats and their political pals.

      Silent Majory says:

      Small businesses don’t want silly regional banks. They want you to GET OUT OF THE WAY.

      I can only imagine the form-filling and bureaucracy involved in trying to get a loan from this silly bank.

      STOP fiddling. Instead think what you can do to make my life easier. Scrap NI. Stop changing the rules on Employee Share Ownership every six months. Rip up the employment legislation that makes it scary to hire someone new. Let me have the same tax rate as Google or Starbucks.

      Business says:

      Stupid man. Most British businesses don’t want to borrow money. Many of them are sitting on cash. What they need is the confidence to invest and the public sector to get off their backs.

      M­aq­bo­ul says:

      The nimble free market has beaten the ponderous state once again. P2P lending is already filling that gap while Chucky throws around his bright statist ideas to the twittering classes.

      Ah, so you’d like to borrow money for your business would you.

      Please fill in this form, which has a section on who you voted for in the last election.

      Oh, I see you voted Conservative. I’m not sure we can help you at this time.

    David Cameron says:

    “We’re not split over Europe, nor are we split over gay marriage, we don’t do U-Turns, the government is transparent and efficient, Boris is not a bumbling (yet vicious) clown, the moon doesn’t orbit the earth, the tide never goes in or out and the earth isn’t round. That is all”

      Penny from Penistone says:

      Hilarious, just hilarious!

      Of course the Tories are split over Europe, how can anyone possibly say, with a straight face, that “On Europe, I think there is actually incredible unity and agreement, not just in the Tory party but across the country,” . That’s just a lie, a bald faced, up front, no nonsense porkie of the highest order. Just who does Mr Cameron think he is kidding?

      Latest YouGov poll has Tory support at their lowest ever, 27% and approval rating of -40.

Take that bleedin Nigel bleedin Farage, does he have bleedin policies? Does he bleedin hell. All Nige needs to fight the bleedin Commies is a bleedin pint in one bleedin jand

    Meanwhile Russia deals with the important international issues(No NOT Syria stupid)…issuing formal complaint to Azerbaijan about them failing to give maximum points to the Russian Eurovision Song Contest entry

  11. 29 says:

    Dave has now apparently come to the point at which he simply tells lies unwittingly because he believes them himself. If the party go for the jugular and depose him he will not understand what has hit him. However, since he appears to understand little anyway, not much lost there

    • 39
      Lord Stansted says:

      If the Tory MPs don’t get rid of Dave soon then they show themselves to as spineless as he is.

        I Told You So says:

        I suspect you’re a Labour type trying to stir.

        Why should they get rid of someone who polls better than anyone else?

        They can do what they want but dumping a popular leader is like Labour ditching Blair for Brown. It was not a clever move.

        Only chaos in the Conservative Party can open the way for the dismal Ed Miliband.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
