Harman Trying to Stitch Up Seats, Again

Harriet Harman is trying to stitch up a seat for a millionaire comedian’s daughter As Guido revealed in his Sun on Sunday column, Harman has been sniffing around for a seat for her old aide Mabel McKeown, the daughter of Tracy Ullman, who amassed a £75 million fortune as her show brought the world The Simpsons. Less-than-local candidate Mabel who was born in LA, has not had much electoral success so far. She lost out for a local council and when she stood for the London Assembly. She will be hoping she is more successful than the politician her mother most famously backed in a pop video: Neil Kinnock.

            Here is the Labour Party role call of success

            B£iar, Brown, Mandelson, Campbell, McBride, Kinnock, Kinnock, Hodge, Umunna, TWatson, Whelan, Draper, Dugher, Woodcock, Bellardinelli, Balls, Cooper, Burnham, Hain, Byrne, Abbott and Vaz.

            .and idiots like Eddie Izzard and Tracy Ullman think they should run the country????????????????

      Working class people do not vote Labour.

      Those unemployed on benefits do, and many in the public sector.

      That base support is topped up with the postal vote rigging just to make sure. Usually folk who cannot speak English well, and whose government translated literature usually reads in their native language:

      ‘Vote Labour: Free food. Vote anyone else, they will kill your babies’.

        Absolutely spot on analysis. The working classes no longer see Labour as a workers party and the current Tory Party no longer offers anything it having turned into Labour-lite. These are the people who are turning to UKIP, while the “workers” Parties sneer and bitch from the sidelines.

        The current three infesting Parliament don’t give a shit for aspirational Working or Middle Class people except as a source of REVENUE to bribe the burgeoning benefit classes and the public sector vote.

        Your Friendly Neighbourhood OJ Simpleton Monitoring Service says:

        In Jonesy’s Twitter stream, in one tweet there is a link he felt impelled to include, which was to Lev Davidovich Bronstein alias Trotsky; the link explained that Trotsky found that sort of thing, i.e., politically-inspired “propaganda of the deed” murder, unacceptable, because free-lancer sorts are at best ineffectual, and at worst counterproductive, in bringing on the Revolution. Mr Jones does have a moral compass of sorts, we would suppose; some murders are evil– those which don’t further his Red agenda. The killers the other day don’t qualify, and so they’re murderers, not revolutionaries; evil, not righteous.

          And Trotsky’s beloved revolution became a byword and twisted justification for wholesale collective murder.The fascist Left “socialists” make Hitler’s fascist Right “socialists” look like amateurs in the death, torture, starvation, rape and persecution stakes. The difference to the LeftiHunts is that *their* death, torture, starvation, rape and persecution was a means to a glorious future Utopia, while Hitler’s death, torture, starvation, rape and persecution, was an evil besmirching history and any notion of civilization.

          Meanwhile, to the sound of silence from and avert ad eyes os the LeftiHunts, “intellectuals” and sundry well-heeled clebs and meejah types, the death, torture, starvation, rape and persecution, continue in Marxist paradises such as North Korea, Venezuela and Islamo-Marxist Arab heavens on Earth such as “liberated” Egypt, Libya etc. and soon to be “freed” to their Islamo-fascist “rebels”,Syria.

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.”
