Labour Candidate Who Attacked Miliband Back on Message

Tristan Osborne, the Labour candidate turned over by the Sunday Times after being secretly recorded slagging off Ed Miliband and Labour’s strategy, has had a remarkable turn around in opinion, if his Twitter feed is anything to go by:

The candidate in Chatham has taken to robotically pushing the very Labour message that he said was failing just last week:

Tristran Osborne lives in a posh gated development in Rochester (not actually in his prospective constituency) and he is an old boy of the supposed second oldest public school in the country, Kings Rochester, whereas his opponent Tracey Crouch is state school educated… hasn’t Labour already got one posh Tristan? At least Ed now knows who he is…

    Tristan is soooo “down-market. Can only afford one ‘r’. Not like the upper case “Tristran”. Now that’s what you can call posh! Must have gone to a better class of school.

    Well we have euro and local elections on Thursday, how many potential candidates have visited me to date. Precisely zero. So as the main candidates don’t give a toss about the electorate why should I vote for you. I think it’s ukip for me at both local and euro levels as the main parties don’t care about the electorate why should I care about them.

    I don’t care if ukip are a bunch of misfits at least they seem to want to get elected. The main parties need a good kick in the ballots.

    He’s right to be concerned, it’s as plain as the nose on your face that Labour cannot win under Miliband. His strategy is terrible too. I can’t see Miliband in 2015 doing as well as Brown did in 2010, he just isn’t cut out for a great office of state. Labour will poll somewhere around 26% to 28%.

    Police raid home of British teenager killed in Syria


    05/20/2014 17:33

    LONDON – Police investigating the death of a British teenager who was
    killed fighting in Syria last month raided his family’s home on Tuesday
    with warrants issued under anti-terrorism legislation.

    Abdullah Deghayes, 18, died after traveling to Syria with his two
    brothers to fight alongside rebel forces against President Bashar Assad.

    Police and counter-terrorism forces said they were searching four houses
    in southeast England as part of an investigation into the teenager’s

    They said the raids, which began early on Tuesday morning, were not in
    response to any immediate threat and that no arrests were expected.

    Abdullah Deghayes’ father, Abu Bakr Deghayes, said he was being held with his family in a small room inside his Brighton house.

    “It’s very upsetting and frustrating. If there was another way to deal
    with this I would have happily complied. I just can’t understand why
    they would put my family through this,” he said, speaking by phone to
    the support charity CAGE.

    “No arrests expected.” So basically Plod is just being a pain in the arse. Still haven’t caught the bastard that nicked my mum’s tv though.

    Ed Millitwats constituency is Doncaster north
    his constituency office is in Bentley a place which i very much doubt he ever visits except in the run up to an election
    Bentley like all Yorkshire pit towns is now a run down shit hole swamped with immigrants from all corners of the globe It would appear that the immigrants know to target these areas as if there is no work for the British people who live there , then it means that they also will never have to work

    It’s common knowledge that Labour closed far more mines than Thatcher did , but as we all know , these brainwashed folk and their benefit grabbing new neighbours would vote for a dog turd if it was wearing a red rosette (as they did last time)
    A safe Labour seat if ever there was one

    So, it comes as little surprise that Abbott’s blatant (not to mention, ironic) racist outburst slips past the media hounds without so much as a sniff, whilst agitprop mobs assault UKIP supporters and brandish “racist scum” placards.

    Is there any hope of some mainstream media comment on the many Labour MPs employing staff on zero-hours contracts? Whilst bleating endlessly about poverty and zero-hours contracts and the “cotht of living cwithith”?!

    “A Labour spokesman said the party had a policy of not using zero hours contracts.

    But he said it was possible some MPs used the contracts when taking on casual staff.”

    I can only assume that these are not rent boys and prostitutes shared with oligarchs and Labour-funding offshore tax dodgers.

    “He added: ‘A Labour government will give new legal rights to workers on zero hour contracts, including the right to demand a fixed hours contract when they have worked regular hours over six months with the same employer.'” ”

    So in the meantime, whilst Labour is campaigning against the exploitation of workers, it will carry on exploiting workers… no doubt those workers will be busy calling UKIP supporters racists, through the medium of racist slurs?

    Are there any depths…?

    If anyone with a poofy name like Tristan get elected in this constituency, I will start wearing a dress and drinking Pimms. When the Constituency was Rochester AND Chatham we had Julian Critchley for a while, but he was mocked something rotten. I still remember the banners outside one of his meetings at the Central Hall that said “No Pooftahs!” (Barrie McKenzie was popular just then). Chatham has become a very, very downmarket, immigrant-stuffed dump. Most of those who do vote around here are signing their names on a ballot paper. Tracey has cross-party appeal–she has the worst hair-do in Parliament and is a professional soccer coach.

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.”
