Deck the Halls With Cards of Folly

Lucy Rigby, Labour’s pushy candidate in Lincoln, quit her job as a right-on councillor in trendy metropolitan Islington to be parachuted up 141 miles up north. Local Labour members were furious when she won her selection against two Lincoln residents, one commenting that it showed a “middle-class party looking for middle-class MPs”. Now carpetbagger Rigby has stuck two fingers up at her local voters once again. Her Christmas card sent to constituents encouraged them to “Support Lincoln Businesses by Buying Locally this Christmas”. Which wasn’t the cleverest Christmas message, since the cards were printed in Nottingham. Union funded, obviously. Slow clap.

          I stand corrected.

          That would be in front of the Co-op or don’t we mention that organisation any more?

          I doubt we’ll ever see him again in Lincoln.

        I don’t watch her perform, ok for posh boys, but her ingredients are of the more expensive type, nice to eat if you can afford it, a lot of these cookery programs seem to use higher priced ingredients

    Genghiz the kahn says:

    Mrs Rigby said: “As the card indicates, they were printed with Unison’s support and on their direction – Unison’s regional HQ is in Nottingham. We use Lincoln printers for all of our own printing.

    Alex Salmond, formerly the cleverest man in politics says:

    Pig sick to read that Jack and James were the most popular names for boys born in Scotland.

    I’ll need to go all out to ensure it’s Mo hammed and Ib rahim by flooding Scotland with yer effnics.

    They really all are as thick as s**te.
    Another member of the don’t do as I do, do as I say brigade.
    Bigotted in the true sense of the word, closed minded, ideologically brainwashed and intelectually immature but still considered by the PLP to be politically astute. Never mind what potential constituents might think.
    Maybe if we all started voting for the person not the party and elected local independents who care, whatever their political leanings, we might get somewhere.
    Just a thought!

    Bullshit hunter says:

    Who are these fucking oiks with power over us. What the fuck has she done in real life to understand how a business works? I’m sick of these eejits, the country is run by vapid non-entities who haven’t got an original idea between them. When theyre not pontificating on issues they dont understand, theyre robbing taxpayers or shagging each other. it is actually is like The Thick of It.

    Merry Christmas!

    How about an MP who might serve the constituency? says:

    And Lincoln a very sound MP in Karl McCartney who has defeated one female, Labour candidate parachuted from the Metropolis

  20. 55
    Winston says:

    The North is full of middle-class Labour MPs parachuted in from London. Why do the Northern lower classes put up with it? UKIP should start concentrating on such areas. They are ripe for change.

    Karl McFartney MP Lincoln says:

    If you like rude arrogant and generally arsey people you will love me. Lincoln has taken to me like a duck to wet cement. The next election is in the bag…….ps did i tell you i’m a magistrate from Birkenhead….oh hypocrisy i love it

      He beat the last metrpolitan Bimbo Labour sent to Lincoln says:

      I see what you did. How clever and funny of you to make his name McFartney. The last Labour MP for Lincoln was from Ilford, Essex and voted to keep MPs expenses secret. But I suppose its more important if your name rhymes with Fart. Crass stupidity, I love it.

    Nice boobs. Who’s the twat in the tie?

    Kam says:

    This is a shit piece, atrocious not even worth talking about. Unison paid for the cards therefore they print from the company they always use. Their HQ is in Nottingham… So they used a Notts printer. It only makes sense, you’re obviously too dull-witted to understand that. All printing done and paid for by Lincoln Labour is through local Lincoln printers.

    Ps. Attribute your fucking quotes, shit writing.

      Send them a female candidate from London says:

      Shit seems to be a common thread in your comment. Well is might be worth noting that this is the second Labour candidate sent north to captivate the people of Lincoln. The last one was from Ilford in Essex and this one is from the People’s Republic of Islington. That seems like shit too. Sadly for Labour it seems at the last election the people of Lincoln managed to pass the intelligence test otherwise known as “If they send you a pig with a red rosette, vote for it”. Let’s hope they see this onn for what she is too.

    Pag~67 says:

    Third attempt, and only a easy to turn 1100 marj..
    He himself was par..ed in.. And none of his leaflets are printed anywhere near Lincoln or even lincolnshire in fact not even the East Midlands, such a great MP, don’t make me laugh,

    • 85
      Third time unlucky? says:

      Really he was ‘par..ed’ in? Since he’s white, male, heterosexual, married and not a Moslem he is the very antithesis of what Conservative Central Office wanted. So no he wasn’t parachuted in. Yes, it’s a small majority-the whole point is that it’s not a constituency where you can weigh the votes for a pig wearing a red rosette. Could be tricky to get the bimbette in.

    Nothing unusual here. In Erewash, London barrister Catherine Atkinson was parachuted in from her council seat in Kensington and Chelsea, as Coop PPC.
    Daddy meanwhile keeps her council seat warm.

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.”
