Carpet-Bagging Commies of the World, Unite!

Richard Burgon is a classic example of a union-backed carpet bagger. Endorsed by Unite, the GMB, the CWU, ASLEF and UCATT, Burgon will be the candidate for anywhere that will take him, already trying and failing in Rotherham and Barnsley Central. This week, with Unite sponsoring him all the way, literally providing the free beer and sandwiches, he will host a Q&A session alongside Leeds East MP George Mudie, who he now hopes to succeed.

According to the website of the Communist Party of Britain, Burgon is a regular attendee of communist events across the North. He was the guest speaker at the annual Yorkshire Communists’ Red October meeting, which apparently consisted of “celebrations of the Russian Revolution of 1917 by declaring ‘Red October’ throughout the region”. Back in 2011, Burgon was a tutor at the self-described “Communist University of the North”, where among other things students paid homage to military dictator Fidel Castro. If he ever manages to win a selection, Burgon might just become the looniest loony left in parliament…

    “He was the guest speaker at the annual Yorkshire Communists’ Red October meeting”

    Are they like those Civil War re-enactments that people do? Where they all dress up in silly uniforms and prance about a lot? Do the communists dress up as Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin and then run about chasing each other with plastic ice-picks?

    Labour are lurching to the left under Ed Miliband

    The one thing we can take from this is that tragically deluded individuals like this are rare and universally mocked, which bodes well for the future.

    With luck in a decade or so we won’t have a rump of pseudo-ex-commies like Barroso and Ashton grabbing the levers of power and sneaking their twisted ideology in through the back doors of ‘green issues’ and ‘EU unity’.

    Will we see this on the BBC news or in The Guardian? I don’t think so. If he was as far to the right as he is to the left he would have been all over them by now with added anti facist demonstrators at his meetings.

    not sure who is madder if i am honest, Communists or Randist Libertarians.

    both of them seem to hold their fellow man in utter contempt, but for different reasons.

    I don’t think this kind of genetic defect is treatable. Since the socialists/communists are historically in favour of eugenics, why don’t they lead by example and carry out the policy on themselves?

    Right Full Rudder says:

    Is it not a fair question to ask Ed why he allows communists in his party? If any centre right party allowed fascists, the sky would fall in. How are communists any better?

    Do you think he and B-B-B-Balls will hit it off OK. The prize for being the biggest loony tune in the Peoples Party is up for grabs now that the Prime Mentalist is in the process of exiting stage left, and the Competition could be quite entertaining to aficionados of the weird and wonderful ways of the Milliband Circus.

    Answers on a sheet of used loo paper, please.

    ha, ha, ha! Nearly spat my tea at the monitor. Chasing each other with plastic ice picks – classic! Actually, it was an ice axe. Very difficult to murder somebody with an ice-pick, you’d need to insert it via the eyeball while they were sleeping I would guess.

    FFS says:

    Yes, I think they are currently at the peak of their power acrrued from years of KGB funded corruption before they shuffle off this mortal coil and leave us all in peace. The only question is, who will fill the ideology and power vacuum left behind?

    FFS says:

    I was about to say that Hollande screwing Julie Gayet was as likely as the second coming occurring in my lifetime, but then I realised it might be misconstrued…..

    Bluto says:

    The whole country has lurched to the left and almost become a de facto socialist state. The number of “ex” communists in the establishment – government, public and third sectors – is alarming.

  33. 33
    FFS says:

    Because the entire Labour Party is full of communists, communist sympathisers and useful idiots happy to go along with communism for their own ends.

    Ever since the SDP group left Labour there have only been communists in the party. They only pretend to be centre left in order to cadge votes.

    Jack Ketch says:

    The one saving grace of French politicians like Hollande, Sarksosy, Mitterand, Strauss-Cohen and so on, is that when they caught with their Robinet in the wrong place, it is usually in a woman. On this side of the channel it is more likely to be a toss-up–so to speak.

    Or even worse, misconceived…

    John Bellingham says:

    Almost all of Blair’s cabinets were “former” communists/CND/Militant Tendency/Trot types. They changed their underpants for power and position–just as the “ILP”, Independent Labour Party types did in 1945. But they didn’t change their spots-or their smell.

    The obvious ones like this are fairly harmless (and rare). It’s the entryists, who have burrowed into every government department, every profession and who dominate the BBC, these are the really dangerous ones.

    NE Frontiersman says:

    I’ve often wondered about that; in how many places in Mexico could you sort of happen to have an ice axe lying around without anybody thinking it was a little over-cautious, given the nice weather we’ve all been having?

    But if you were going to smuggle in a weapon of choice, how would you come up with that?
    Had Mercador been laying extremely long odds at the bookies in advance?

    Kim Jong-un says:

    I will not tolerate jumped up commies.
    I shall have the honour of seeking them out where ever they reside on our earth. I shall have the honour of submitting them to a trial.
    I shall have the honour of countersigning the execution orders.
    I shall have the honour of ensuring the execution is carried without regret or delay.

    Death to commies who are older than me.

    All the stuff he has put out in Leeds appears to not mention politics, just the fact that he is local. Odd that.

    Leeds Worker says:

    Its all gone quiet on this one, despite the selection meeting for Leeds East being close. I saw Lisa Johnson the GMBs political officer up in Yorkshire with Paul Nicholson of the Yorkshire Regional Labour Party. Wonder if this was the issue they were discussing.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
